The Attitude of the 62-Year-Old Lady Who Hit My Car!

I was backing up an officer on a traffic stop. He had completed the stop and released the violator, but we were still roadside with our rear flashers activated discussing another matter. We were outside of the kill zone, several feet to the right of the cars when a van drove by.

Detective Disarmed in Interview with Murder Suspect

During a homicide investigation, two detectives were conducting an interview with a homicide suspect who was in custody and placed in an interview room with only his right hand handcuffed.

Warm Breaths on a Frozen Night

The night was chilly, maybe high 20s. I had been on shift for about three hours at the time of the incident. My eight-officer patrol team was manned by newer officers with a high drive. Officer safety was more of an idea we knew existed somewhere else.

Suspicious Person Shoots at Deputy during Field Interview

At approximately 2245, a sheriff’s deputy was on patrol in a rural section of the county when she noticed a car pulled to the side of the road with a single occupant in the driver’s seat.

Pre-Planned Ambush Foiled at Fair

I was working at the county fair when I was flagged down by a concerned citizen. She stated there was an intoxicated male sitting on the back of my patrol unit and gave me a description. I went into the parking area and saw a white male sitting on my patrol unit.

Car Drag Near Miss

I observed a suspicious vehicle driving slowly through several alleys. I followed the vehicle briefly and obtained PC for a traffic stop. I approached and spoke with a single white male driver. He gave me his DL and insurance. He seemed extremely nervous.
