LINCOLN â€“ When a police officer arrives on the scene of a crime or at a routine traffic pullover, itâ€™s his or her job to make sure everyone on scene is safe, including the officer. Itâ€™s also part of the job to ensure that everyone is comfortable, for the benefit of the situation.
But sometimes, no matter how good of a person that reporting officer is, it can be tough. If that driver doesnâ€™t speak English well, it might be difficult for him to communicate with the officer. Sometimes, an officer can unintentionally come off as intimidating.
