Protection

People who work in an all night gas station often are in an armored booth.  A small box of bulletproof material to keep them safe while they provide fuel at all hours of the day and night, often in bad neighborhoods.  Police officers work in an office that moves. 

The average police car provides no protection beyond that provided by any other automobile.  Police cars should provide protection for the officer.  They need to be fireproof, bullet proof and accident proof.

Race car drivers wear special uniforms and wear special equipment to keep them safe in a collision.  Police are expected to drive at high speed, not on a closed track but in public while responding to calls or chasing suspects.  They get no helmets, no four point restraints and no flame retardant uniforms.  That needs to change; that's what the SGT Says.
