  • Best Advice Recieved

    Just curious as to what some of the best advice people have recieved and applied over the years.
    One of my former Explorer teachers was REAL big on Officer safety, I still remind people to "always look up." I also tend to be pay attention to where I am (since the night he smacked the side of the car with his hand, slammed on the brakes and says " I have just been shot....where are we?" ) So, I notice street signs and the like
    anyone else?
    stay safe and always remember to look up!!

    I practice that even when I'm jogging. Every street I turn on I say to myself North on Main st 500 block, etc. I also try to notice every weird looking car and anything else out of the ordinary and then do a radio call in my head on what I saw.

          How about something along the lines of:
          "Don't take no **** from nobody."
          Bill Cosby: Stewie, what do you think candy is made out of?
          Stewie Griffin: Sunshine and farts! What the hell kind of question is that?!

            The one piece of advice that sticks out in mind, however, was one that I got in my second week of training. My FTO advised me to "be careful who you trust." Over the years, I've found this to be EXTREMELY beneficial. This FTO is now one of my best friends, and someone I trust with anything. There are way too many smile-to-your-face, but stab-you-in-the-back jerk-offs out there.

              Don't write it on paper if you don't want it to come back and haunt you

                1) We don't get paid for what we do, we get paid for what we might have to do.

                2) Your career is a marathon, not a sprint.

                        When you walk into a room full of people, be kind, professional and humane. Also form a plan incase you have to kill everybody in that room.

                              You stole my answer. Very good advice though. Don't trust anybody.
