Cameras

Always behave as if you are on camera.  Between security cameras, police cameras, cell phone cameras, news media cameras you are likely on camera.  Nearly everywhere in the world you are on camera in some way.

If you don't want your mother, wife, daughter, watch commander, and priest to see what you are doing, then don't do it.  There are too many officers out there doing stupid things because they think no one is watching or listening.

Everyone is watching and listening.  How many times have you seen a video of an officer saying or doing something stupid on video because he did not think he was being filmed?  You are always being filmed so act like it all the time.  This means verbal commands are more important than ever.  Express what you want the suspect to do and give a reasonable time for compliance.  Ask, tell, require; that's what the SGT Says.
