    It is one of those things that can be debated over and over again with different opinions. When it comes down to it, if you follow the law and your departments policies, you will never get in trouble.
    If you ever have sprained ankle, give me a call.

      i agree, like i said earlier,,i didnt work in a big metro,,,just a smaller town, and i m sure things are different,,,but i wouldnt say never,,,i know a former leo who is the fed pen now. no i was not there when it all went down, but part of it was on tape,,,but my opinion,,he got shafted,,,just another cop tried by an anti cop jury.

        I can see both sides on this issue and when dealing with an officer in this situation, I think its important to use discretion on a case-by-case basis.

        The most concerning thing to me with this debate is the decline of officer discretion in the LE world. Granted, there are certain offenses which must be mandatory arrests, but LE is most effective when officers can use discretion in dealing with situations.

          Depends on your current status of employment: If you are an applicant and they ask this question: Letter of the law....he/she goes to jail.

          If you are a peace officer off probation: Spirit of the law....

              Funny, looking at the profiles and experience of the guys who posted on this, the younger ones would arrest the fella, and the older ones would take other measures. I'm a 19 year guy and I'd drive him home, but I still don't know the right answer.

                I would make an arrest just as in any other case or call in another unit to handle stop etc.
                In this day unlike many years back you just can't give the breaks we used to.
                Yes and I am an old guy

                  Question
                  Hoping not to sound like a smart *** here. But to those that would cut them a break and find them a way home, is this something that you would extend to the average joe or reserved just for important people such as judges, politicians, or other LEO

                      I have no respect for any officer who would drive while intoxicated. I personally don't drink. If I did, I would have enough responsibility to do it wisely and avoid jeopardizing my job and the safety of others. Sorry, but no breaks for that officer.
