    Attorney General's Message
Our goal is for every traffic stop to end safely for all involved.
To achieve this goal, we have taken various steps, all of which have been directed at law enforcement: All police officers in New Jersey must complete annual training on de-escalation techniques, cultural awareness and implicit bias through our CLEAR Institute; thousands of police officers now wear body-worn cameras; we have improved protocols for investigation of police-involved use of deadly force; and we have promoted innovative community policing through hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants and awards. Our new “Safe Stop” initiative takes the next step by providing information for the general public about what to do, and what not to do, during a traffic stop, to ensure that all stops are safe and fair. Please help us make every stop a Safe Stop. Take the Safe Stop Pledge and we'll send you a Safe Stop decal to display on your vehicle.
