Traffic Citations accomplishes two things for a street officer, self initiated activity and mental therapy. There was no "quota" but supervisors expected self initiated activity to show at the end of a shift. It also provides therapy in the form of see violation, stop violator and issue punishment (fine). Most of the day is drive to crime that is over, write report and move to the next call like an assembly line. Unless the bad guy is standing there the street officer won't have time for the follow up investigation due to calls holding. The Detectives get all the glory, lol. When priority calls occur dispatch usually has to call you off of the call you are on to respond which could lead to long waiting periods (response times) or even no officer available if there were all priority calls being serviced. Protecting yourself or your family is a priority for everyone including the caller
