SAGU criminal justice conducts traffic demostrationWaxahachie, Texas — January 25, 2013 — Southwestern Assemblies of God Universities (SAGU) criminal justice students get hands-on experience of how to conduct a routine traffic stop by Ellis County Sheriffs Department in SAGU professor Bruce Stayments's Police Operations course.

On Thursday, Jan. 24, Stayments assisted Patrol Deputy Jeffrey Prater in demonstrating the do's and don'ts of executing a traffic stop. They allowed students to sit in their squad cars, make a call to dispatch, and approach the detained vehicle.

Deputy Praters visit was well received by the students. SAGU junior and criminal justice student Promise Jackson said, "It was a great experience. You can tell Officer Prater knew what he was talking about and had a lot of knowledge to share. The program itself is very entertaining and informative. Professor Stayments is a great teacher."

During his demonstration Deputy Prater shared, "The most important task of an officer is to return home to his family." He stated that safety is the first priority of an officer when making a routine traffic stop. Elaborating on safety, he explained the importance of the location of the stop, how crucial communication is, and proper body positioning.
