Most important, get home safely. When confronted with a dangerous suspect, remember:
Remember, Brothers and Sisters: NOT TODAY!!
Brothers and Sisters – Please be extra vigilant this Christmas Season. Wear your seat belt, watch your speed, and remember – NOT TODAY! – The website staff
Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years Day are fast approaching, which means that law enforcement officers need to be even more vigilant. Excluding September 11th, these three dates are the three deadliest in the history of law enforcement.
Every officer knows that domestic violence spikes during the holidays. This increase in domestic calls has a direct correlation to the spike in line of duty duty deaths, both from gunfire and auto accidents during the responses.
Already, in December 2011, there has been a sudden increase in gunfire deaths of law enforcement officers. In the past week alone, there have been three unproved fatal shootings of law enforcement officers in Virginia, Kansas, and New York.
As we get closer to the holidays, please be extra vigilant. Slow down, wear your seatbelt, and as our good friend Dave “Buck Savage” Smith says: “Watch the hands!”
