Great info.

I'd like to add a few.

1. Dispatcher's are your lifeline. Stop in and say hello to 'em every once in awhile

2. You don't have a big S on your chest or wear a cape. You will not save the world. Extinguish that blue flame shooting out your ass.

3. Develope very thick skin. Remember, you will be dealing with people at their worst.

4. If all hell breaks loose, screw proper radio procedures.

5. Everybody does not need to go to jail or be issued a summons to gain compliance. Know the difference between the 'spirit' of the law and 'letter' of the law.

.....and last, but not least, go talk with your prosecuting attorney and ask questions. He's the one who's going to be prosecuting your cases or not.

Stay Safe!
