Law enforcement officers must understand their powers, duties, and responsibilities when interacting with members of the public. The range and goals of possible interactions can span from building positive relationships with community member during voluntary contacts to making arrests. Regardless of the situation, officers should be prepared to interact appropriately, professionally, and according to policy.
