Hello, sounds like your new to OC. It is usually prudent to write, call, or E-Mail the Police Chief, or Sheriff, or head Ranger, depending which dept. you are having trouble with. Attempt to resolve, or assess the policies of the Dept. first hand. Not from a 'guy you talked too'.
LEO usually always 'recommend' OC is 'not recommended'. Especially the road patrol officers. Don't argue with the grunts, go to the Chief's. Also you need to be on level ground with them. Familiar with the Ohio Revised Codes: ORC 9.68, Inducing Panic, Disorderly Conduct, Terry vs. Ohio. Do you know what RAS is? Do you have a voice recorder?
You could learn a lot by joining another OC group, whether at a picnic, or a meeting somewhere. My friends, Rottman, Lthrnck, and Theqbn have meetings on a regular basis and post them in here.
A actual OC protest is usually the last resort after other methods are exhausted.
