In order for a police officer to pull you over in Norwich, Connecticut or any other Southeastern, Connecticut town, the officer needs reasonable suspicion that a crime has occurred. This includes something minor such as a motor vehicle infraction. Essentially, this means the officer need to have a reasonable reason that you did something wrong.
Here is an example from Connecticut. A driver gave Brookfield police officers reasonable suspicion when she failed to stop at a stop sign. Police pulled the driver over, and upon smelling the odor of alcohol, asked the driver to perform a field sobriety test. She ended up being arrested for DUI.
