    "description": "<p>Bittner&rsquo;s posthumously published 1965 fieldwork, Larimer Tours (Bittner 2013 [1965]), is discussed exploring how criminology has neglected Bittner&rsquo;s ethnomethodological stance and overlooked his interest in language and conversational practices. Technological records (e.g.,dash-cams, body-worn cameras) afford opportunities to extend Bittner&rsquo;s seminal work with an ethnomethodological focus on police &ldquo;competencies-in-action&rdquo; through the study of recorded police-citizen interaction. Using data from dash-cam traffic stops and field research, this paper elaborates two competencies of the police discussed in Larimer-the use of area knowledge and procedures of interrogation. A focus on how area knowledge is utilized in an investigatory sequence of traffic stops demonstrates its interactional complexity and how &ldquo;area knowledge&rdquo; employed by police and citizens is made interactionally relevant and consequential to the traffic stop. Implications for criminology and the study of police-citizen interaction are discussed.</p>",
