    Not law enforcement, but when I was a new EMT a partner told me to "Slow down, it not your emergency." I was not driving, I was spinning on scene. I now pass that along.

      There are 3 things that will get you fired....
      Women, Guns and Booze. Take each in moderation, and never mix all three.
      Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

        the best piece of advise that I have heard and learned-
        its a job, leave it there (in the patorl car) and everyone is replacable,


        just do it and get home safely-and in 1 piece.

            No matter what it takes, make it home at the end of watch.....that is priority number one among my few friends in law enforcement.

                            Get at least a bachelor degree in a technical field before you get married and have kids.
