I was just curious if anyone had a good series of drug interdiction questions to ask during MV stops, of known users or of susp vehicles in "known drug neighborhoods"?

Feel free to PM them to me if you'd like...
Thanks.

Not necessarily a drug interdiction question, but a question I often ask is :
are there any dead bodies, bombs or bazookas in the vehicle? I have found that if someone is trying to hide something they often don't realise you are asking such "unusual" questions and will be serious in their replys. People that often have nothing to hide, will laugh when you ask the questions. As with everything, it doesn't always work, but I have found it useful.

I took the 3 day FLETC class at the Vermont State Police academy in November of 2004. The instructors were a DEA agent, a Deputy Chief from Illinois and a Detective from the Washington State Patrol. FLETC also has a week long course which certifies students to teach the 3 day class.

There is a great book on conducting these kind of stops called "Tactics for Criminal Patrol" by Charles Remsberg. It is available from Calibre Press. Get it, you'll be glad you did.
