There is a new officer in Woodburn (a Yankee) who is pulling people over and lying to ticket them. He is driving past people rolling on Hwy 240, putting on his breaks to turn around and then lying to them, saying he "clocked" them speeding, citing some ridiculously high mph. His patrol car doesn't even have the capability of "clocking" speeds while his car is rolling!! If you argue with him at all, he will keep you pulled over for 20 minutes just to run your tags and think up as many violations he can give you in retaliation for questioning him.

BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe because nobody follows the speed limit. Nothing to worry about.

If that's true and you can prove it: Fight the ticket. Its up to him to show up to court and show that his equipment has recently been calibrated and is properly functioning.

Not sure if he would hold that kind of position if that were true. He definitely wouldn't be allowed to carry a weapon!

It's Bruce unless it's a new guy. He seems nice. Maybe don't speed. That's a thought.

He's kind of nosey. I was getting groceries out of my truck one night and he stopped at the end of our driveway and just stared. I start to walk over and ask him is there anything wrong and he just pulled off then sat down at the end of our road for about 10 minutes before finally deciding to leave.
its ok

I'm sure he was just making sure u weren't manufacturing meth. Lol. U gotta think abt how cool he would b if he caught someone doing something besides speeding! Lol. If he came to my house in the summer he'd probably charge me with lude behavior or something for laying out in the buff ;-)

Don't speed and you won't get a ticket. I know him and he doesn't have to give a certain number of tickets or get paid per ticket. He gets like $35k a year to work few hours a day, who wouldn't jump on that deal. Do your homework people, every city has to have a cop. I'm also a little curious to know if you have even seen what he's got in that car. How do you know his radar is not capable of "clocking" while he's moving? Unless you have seen the radar that's the dumbest assumption, I highly doubt you could possibly know that for sure. You are so smart fight it in court. You're probably not the first guy to blame something on "faulty equipment" and won't be the last either.

Everybody hates the police, until they need them to risk their lives to save someone bc they are too cowardly to do it themselves! But the police will gladly risk their lives to save others and be made fun of on topix at the same time.
so ya know

Just to let you all know that the police officer in Woodburn does not get a salary at all, he volunteers his time and training, he does have the training from the police academy as all cops do. If he pulls you over for speeding and you act like an adult and be civil you might just get a warning. He is here to protect Woodburn citizens and try to keep the kids safe since many of them ride bikes, and ect. If you don't likegetting pulled over slow down and obey the speed limit signs as if you would in any other city or drive around Woodburn and not go thru it. There are speed limit signs posted in Woodburn. This seems out of the norm for Woodburn because some of our former police officers did not enforce the law.

I understand he is also working for free and in a car donated by him, He also is pulling people over way past where the the city limits signs used to be, they somehow disappeared about the same time he started patrolling imagine that

That would be easily contested in court. Signs may come & go, but city limits [typically] do not.
