Typically, in each state, there are four documents a person must have before entering into police duties: 1. Oath of Office 2. Commission Card 3. Bond 4. Training Records And typically, if a person does not have any one of these documents, then he cannot enter into police duties: i.e., he's not a cop. Each state has statutes stipulating these requirments. Does anyone know the statutes for each of these requirements in Pennsylvania? I am not a lawyer. Seek legal counsel to verify these comments.

In Nebraska you can be elected county sheriff with just a vote of the people. No formal education is required.

I respect and support the office of sheriff. However, some of the persons holding that office should be legally and lawfully removed from office. The question I posed has to do with legally fighting a cop. Many people don't know how to do that. Arguing at the road side stop is NOT the way. The way you do it is the same way they do it to you. So what do the cops do. They know what you're supposed to be doing, they observe you not doing it, then they ticket you. You fight back the same way. You know what they're supposed to be doing, in this case it's having the proper paperwork, you observe them not doing it, i.e., not having the proper paperwork, then you "ticket" them. To start the ball rolling you search the statutes to get the grounding to establish your case.
