Today I got pulled over by a cop, I didn't get any tickets, so that was good, but the cop didn't give my ID back. How can I get my ID back?

Call the police department. It could have been an oversight. You cannot sue the police because they did not give you back your license (ID) after a traffic stop. If your license was suspended, this would be a different story because the officer would have confiscated your license and you would have received a ticket and/or jail but you stated no citations were issued. I do not know where the other member lives however, when you are pulled over, you are asked to produce your license or ID. This is the only way your name can be run through their computer to be certain you do not have any outstanding warrants, etc.

U have to go down to the police station to get it. Don't call cause they are more likely to not give it back. I have a feeling that ur license was suspended. It can get suspended without u knowing it. Hope this helps!:) GOOD LUCK CAUSE YOU'LL NEED IT!!!!!!!;)

They had absolutely no reason to suspend my licence, they gave me a sobriety test, which I passed. When I was done with that they still for some reason had me call for a ride, which makes no sense because I passed their little test. When my ride came, they drove me in my car back home. Before we left though, the sheriff told me that he was going to bring my drivers licence and ins. papers back to my car, and then I'd be on my way. Well he only gave me my insurance papers back. I wasn't really paying much attention, so I didn't notice that I was without it until I got back home. I got pulled over at 12am, and didn't get home till at least 1am, so there wasn't much I could do about it then, but I'm thinking i'll probably call the non emergency number in the morning. I don't think driving to the cop shop asking for my drivers licence that a cop lost is a very good idea lol. I'll probably make the call in the morning, and avoid getting into any unwanted trouble. Since the sheriff told me he was giving it back, I'd assume my licence isn't suspended...i hope not anyways :/

With all due respect, police cannot confiscate your license "just because". If it was suspended, the officer is required by law to inform you and you would have received a citation/ticket for driving on a suspended license and paid the fine. Relax. It was an oversight. Call non-emergency and go
pick it up. Also, Miss Taylor Swift, the aforementioned was directed to you because the member doesn't need good luck. The officer felt albeit the sobriety test was passed, he shouldn't drive. It could have been worse. Again, it was an over site on the part of the officer in not returning your ID.

If he just forgot to return it the policeman should try to reach you once he realizes. You can call the district precinct and explain, they will get the message to the officer, you will need to inform them what area, street, you were pulled over in your town so they can find the officer on duty in that area.
