Below 100

2014 is over and we failed.  We failed to keep our on duty deaths below 100.  Every year since 1943 American police have had at least 100 officers killed in the line of duty.  Tonight on New Years Eve there will be large numbers of drunken people on the road.

It's another opportunity for you to be injured or killed on the job.  Wear your seatbelt.  I know it's uncomfortable and can be hard to buckle and unbuckle. Wear it anyway.  Watch out for those drunk drivers, not only so you can arrest them, but so you can avoid getting hit by them.

Drunk people having New Years Eve parties sometimes get out of hand.  Don't be in a hurry to rush in and handle a large crowd on your own.  Do you carry your riot gear in the trunk?  Your helmet and riot baton?  Let's start the new year by driving safely, wearing our vest and seat belt and watching our for each other; that's what the SGT Says.
