    I followed that advice for my 17 years in patrol.....and passed it along to all of my trainees.
    Its hard to always follow this, but I've managed to do this as much as possible. I'm a happier man for it..

    I work with a guy that follows all of his cases. He is the most stressed out, neurotic person I know. I'm amazed he hasn't had a stroke.

    That is Policing 101
    That sums it up.

    Reminds me of an old one. 911 hang up. Arrive and see silhouette tossed across the room in the upstairs apartment. Get to the door and silence...announce ourselves....silence. Take the door and find him over her strangling her, she is unconscious. Take care of him, she wakes up. Room has needles everywhere. Lock him up on DV, full blown, call judge get TRO he gets sent to jail with a low bail. Finish up the paperwork and go home. Next night doing my rounds and see them hand in hand on the sidewalk

    I have had many of these DV's dropped given the victims no longer wishes to pursue charges. I just had one dropped (guy v. guy) because the aggressor's doctor stated that it was the medications fault, not his.

    I been at it for three years now....you get there, she's crying saying, "We're done," "He's outta here," "I'm moving on," etc. etc. and even circles "DO" on the "Do you want to press charges" box. Same story, different day.

    You could take all the psychology courses ever offered and still want to go "GAHHHHH! WTF!" after dealing with certain people. All you can do here is just sit back and see what happens in court.

    started a topic I just want to vent

    I just want to vent

    I filed a warrant for a guy a while back for hitting his old lady with a large PVC pipe. The DA took Ag. Asslt. This was back in September. He finally gets arrested the other day and the victim calls me telling she wants to drop the charges (I basically told her calling me was stupid since it's out of my hands).

    I knew something was goofy about their relationship when she had a new born at the home and she had been with him for 5 years....and the baby wasn't his....but that's another story..


    I don't understand people.
