Small Crimes

People who do big crimes, don't generally care about little crimes.  People who do bank robberies don't care about their car registration.  When on patrol, look for minor crimes, they often lead to major criminals.

The Watergate burglary eventually lead to the resignation of President Nixon.  It was discovered by a security guard who found the door latch taped open.  The Oklahoma City Bomber was captured by a police officer who stopped a man for a loose license plate.

Minor offenses often lead to major discovers.  Run everyone you stop to see if they have a warrant.  Sometimes criminals will be on the run, even for decades.  By looking for tiny violations, you can often unravel string of crimes that will get a very bad person off the streets; that's what the SGT Says.
