9/11

I write three blogs.  One on toy soldiers and one on politics and current events, and of course, this one on law enforcement.  They each are published officially at 9:11 a.m. Pacific Time.  I commemorate the 9/11 attacks in this small way.

Ask the younger officers with your agency where they were on 9/11 and see if they even remember it at all.  That was over 15 years ago.  Some of your new guys might only have been five or six years old then.

Still, it changed police work in the USA for a long time.  We now have to worry about response to terrorism, something often common in other countries, but new here.  Still, think about the basics, wear your vest, wear your seat belt, drive carefully.  All of these are just as important in the response to terrorism as they are in response to daily crime; that's what the SGT Says.
