I've been doing a little reading, between helping people today.
What is the proper role of a local police agency in the 21st century? The role of police agencies has changed over the years, as well as the public expectations of a local police agency. This deserves more study, and it deserves the philosophical thought that such questions require.
Body Armor (Kevlar vests). You'd think hat after all these years, I'd get used to wearing the damned things. You'd be wrong. It feels just as foreign and unfamiliar to me today as it did the first day I wore one. I hate the damned things with all my heart. I know all the good reasons for wearing it, and I don't need you to remind me. Still, I hate the damned thing. Body Armor will be one of the things I do not miss about police work.
