in one over time here as he would in month over there.
My new vest doesn't fit. It needs to be recut.
For the first time, I took my IPad to traffic court and used the Google Maps Street View app to argue my case.
The judge told me traffic citations in the county are at an all time low. This includes citations written by traffic officers.
With my new department cell phone, I can submit my court overtime slips on-line.
Yesterday's pinch doused himself with butane and threaten to light himself on fire. An hour later, I was called out to deal with him. I found him looking to fight. En route to jail he tried to choke out using the strap of the seat belt.
At jail, he tried to drown in the ISO room's toilet. When jail shut off the water, he stripped naked and tried to hang himself with his jeans.
The department is transitioning away from latex gloves to nitrile gloves to prevent exposure from fentanyl.
To replace the Caprice Classics, the department started using Crown Vics in 1996. They were a poor substitute. Over the years, Ford improved the car. By 2009, the Vic Interceptor was a good car. The cage was small, but the push bumper anchored to the chassis.
Since Ford discontinued the car, departments have struggled to find a solid prowler. The department tried Chargers and Impalas. Neither worked. They bought into the Explorer SUV. The cage is roomy. There is more space for gear.
I have been holding out, driving the last of the white Vics.
Today, there were none.
Over the last year, I could count on taking an old car, cleaning it out on Monday, and be be the sole driver for the week.
One by one, the whiteys have been swapped out for SUVs. There is on left in the First Ave barn. There's a blue '11 and a single Impala. The rest are SUVs.
I drove one tonight. The seat is too small. The MDT was buggy.
