BAIT CARS : WHAT IS YOUR OPINION?
Bait car operations are very simple. Firstly, have an LEO off-team to spawn a civilian vehicle, have them park it in a busy area (such as Redwood CD) fully unlocked. Have multiple Law Enforcement Officers around the area of the bait vehicle in unmarked vehicles (like the picture at the top of this topic), once someone decides to jump into the vehicle and drive off, immediately communicate with the other LEOs, pursue the suspect, preform a C7 and eventually arrest.
I personally support the idea of Bait cars, now yes, we do lack training in doing this but I’m sure a simple joint department training on this won’t hurt anybody.
And yes, the Governor has stated in #state-announcements to not do “bait cars” but I’m just asking for the publics opinion.
