Retired since 2003, local PD in Westchester Co. NY (Sgt.) after 21 years. Career included patrol/administrative Sgt., firearms instructor & academy instructor.

Don't miss what the guys/gals have to put up with politically now. Gone are the days when an officers discretion and common sense would more often than not quell the situation.

I agree. We often had talks in the squad room about the days when we would become like the fire dept (not insulting you all) where we just wait for the call to come instead of looking for trouble like we do now. With all that is going on in this climate our guys are being less motivated to seek out trouble like they used to for fear of ending up in jail. It is no surprise south of us in Baltimore arrests have plummeted and crime has spiked because of it.

On car stops and arrests we almost always NEED to arrest or cite if it is warranted because someone has a camera either our own on my chest / car or a person's cell phone. They would be the first to point out how we did something wrong by letting one guy go and another gets arrested taking away our best asset... Discretion and common sense.

Not sure if this counts, 26 years as HR Director for our State's Forestry Commission. Wildland fire fighting is just one of our agency's responsibilities. Have the utmost respect for our guys/gals and all emergency response folks. Member of Adams County Search & Rescue, semi active member of Adams County Fire Services (Liberty Road).

I still have a problem with members of "Ball" teams making millions while our EMTs, Firefighters and Police can barely get by. Bless them all!

What really gets me is that these workers at fast food joints want $15 an hour for flipping burgers while we have EMT's/FF making less or just a little more than that!
