    I had just gotten my truck back and hit a deer that jumped between my partner’s vehicle and mine. I think I was going 45 or so and it took out my passenger side headlight assembly. This happened 2 days after I hit a black bear that totaled the spare I was driving because mine was getting a new engine. 2 days before that my partner hit a deer with parts of his truck flying off and striking vehicles traveling the opposite direction. All of these were reported to the Sgt.

      We just put deer guards on the squads and one of the deputies hit a deer at 115. He took out a headlight and that was it. Yes, I'm going to report any accident just to CMA. The deer guards really do their job.

        Report any and all damage. I found out the hard way. Backing up, about 2-3 mph side swiped a yellow pole VERY minor damage, a slight buffable yellow mark and a small indent. Just before the incident another officer had a similar situation with minor damage and they just wrote up a "wear and tear" on it. I assumed such would be the case with mine as it wasn't as bad as the other officer's damage. WRONG! I know I assumed, shame on me. During my monthly vehicle inspection, my sgt. inspected the whole vehicle, exterior, interior, engine, everything. Nothing said about the damage. I believed everything was good. About a month later, he showed another sgt, on duty, the damage and that sgt., said, "Sgt. XXXXXXXX just showed me some damage on your vehicle can you explain it?" So I did. Report it IMMEDIATELY. Lesson learned.

        Is it any surprise that cops don't trust anyone?

          I'm glad someone else caught that. Any incident involving your vehicle you file a report. Not only to CYA but you develop a reputation of being a stand up cop.

              Couldn't agree more. We had one of these just recently. Trip to the car wash literally took away all the 'damage' to the cruiser. There was a pov involved however. Was the pov's fault, a very minor collision but ALL incidents involving City vehicles MUST be reported. We'll then determine if further action (ie. repairs, etc.) is needed. The paperwork is a PITA but integrity requires it.

                All accidents involving (or any damage to) city vehicles gets reported immediately. That's all there is to it. Man up and own up to your mistakes.

                  After watching that video only one time, I can just about guarantee you that caused several thousand dollars in damage. No such thing as a small dent or two in an impact like that. Been there and done that.

                  Even if that car had a Mad Max bumper, it would have been dented to the point where it would have to have been reported.
