Too many cops die when they lose control of their cars. Tire pressure plays a big role in proper vehicle handling. Check it! No one will do it for you. And while you’re at it, check the wear on the tire itself – you have to have enough tread to channel water properly.
Don’t escort handcuffed suspect by holding the chain between the cuffs. Many bad guys know how to use that chain to instantly amputate a finger. Better yet, get a pair of cuffs that have a rigid hinge between the cuffs.
“Chief, I attended my first ever below 100 training class today. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect with a four hour block of instruction on something as simple as wear your belt, wear your vest, and slow down. I’ll say I was pleasantly surprised. What a good class and I am glad that you require all of your men and women to go. Every academy in the country should have these guys come out and teach this class. Anyway, just wanted to shoot you an email to say thank you.”
