Patrol officer issues ticket to ficticious drivers - saint or criminal?

It is well known within the 'force' that you have to meet quotas for speeding 'fines', arrests, etc.

So what's a 'person' (read police officer - TOTALLY different from police-man/woman) to do?

Why not keep everyone from the respective communities (police force (read - executive) and the general offending public) happy?

Has this police person got a conscious?

This person has confirmed what all police forces in every state deny that being the 'quota' system.

NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SAFETY OF THE PUBLIC!

Make up your own mind from the article at dailyadvertiser.com.au from 4 Dec 2015 of the headline:

Gundagai highway patrol officer charged after allegedly issuing tickets to fictitious drivers so he could reach 'quota'


A local highway patrol officer has been charged in relation to issuing false tickets to fictional drivers.

A local highway patrol officer has been charged in relation to issuing false tickets to fictional drivers.

CLAIMS have emerged a Gundagai highway patrol officer issued speeding tickets to fictitious foreign drivers so that he could reach an informal quota set by his bosses.

The 39-year-old officer was charged last week on 16 counts of modifying restricted data held on a police computer.

He claimed he had caught 16 drivers from different countries speeding in and around Wagga

The false tickets were allegedly issued to international drivers that didn’t actually exist.

The officer allegedly believed he would escape detection if the tickets were made out to foreigners because the State Debt Recovery Office would not pursue them once they’d returned overseas.

The officer is believed to be a senior constable attached to the highway patrol command. He will face court on January 6.

He's probably a good ones as he decided to fictionalise drivers rather than get the real Public.
