Arlington PD Has Probably Been Fudging Numbers: 15 Officers Targeted




Here's a question: Why lie about a traffic stop which did not occur? A quota? There can't possibly be a quota for issuing warnings (right?) so did they represent that they gave an actual ticket to a person who did not exist? Is their pay impacted because of the number of warnings/citations issued?

Note: They were suspended with pay.

Note #2: It's a State Jail Felony to make a false statement in "anything" which will be "received" or "kept" by the government if you intend to harm or defraud them. (See Penal Code sec. 37.10 and 37.01(2)(a).
