What is your Pet Peeve on the Job?
We all have our ‘pet peeves’ when it comes to the job. For example, as a Field Training Officer for many years, I trained new Officers not to ask, what I believe is a ridiculous question, “Do you have any weapons on you?” As if the bad guy had a weapon he would just hand it over to you. I hate that questions and cannot emphasize this point enough.
I teach Officers that weapons should be assumed at every call and scene that you are on. It is a mindset that has served me justice for over twenty-five years.
