/sayteyshan/ A writ issued out of a court of competent jurisdiction, commanding a person therein named to appear on a day named and do something therein mentioned, or show cause why he should not. An order, issued by the police, to appear before a magistrate or judge at a later date. A citation is commonly used for minor violations (e.g. traffic violations); thus avoiding having to take the suspect into immediate physical custody.
