Beginning in January 2021, the Beaufort Police Department’s monthly demographics citations report will now show two separate tables for criminal citations and traffic citations. Previously, both kinds of citations were grouped together. In addition, the monthly warnings table now shows by demographic how many traffic stops happened during the month, and how many of those resulted in tickets.
Criminal citations can include such things as shoplifting, trespassing, simple possession of marijuana, and public intoxication. Traffic citations can include such things as speeding or causing an accident.
