Silence Is Blue

How much noise do you make when you walk around?  Put on your full uniform and equipment and jump up and down.  Do you rattle or jingle or clunk?  Do you have a pocket full of keys, coins or other bits?

Does your baton rattle when you walk?  Does your flashlight make noise as you walk around?  Do you have taps on your shoes?  Does your leather gear squeak when you walk?  How quiet are you?  Have your partner stand around the corner of your building.  Can you walk up to the corner without him hearing you?

Is your radio turned down, or do you wear an earpiece?  Is your cell phone turned off, or left in the car?  If you are on a response, what kind of phone call are you expecting?  Your ability to move in silence can be a huge tactical advantage when moving around; that's what the SGT Says.
