  • Flexibility in "Ask a Cop" Rules?

    I'm writing to see if there can be some flexability in the "Ask a Cop" rules regarding posts by civlians. I have no qualms at all with only sworn officers answering questions but what if somebody other than the original thread poster has a question related to the topic at hand? It seems to make more sense to post in that thread rather than start a brand new one.

    Just an idea.

    I totally agree with you on this one. I know I am new to this so I really don't know the who issue. And that is none of my business, but it would cut down the post in the general thread if we could do this. NOW IF IT GETS OUT OF HAND THEN YES, STEP IN.

      The Flexibility is already there...

      IMO the problem is not with civs asking questions, heck that's what it is for. The only "problem" is when a civ answers a question that is intended for a cop.

      I would have no problem seeing different questions on one thread as long as it wasn't too far off topic.

        But what if that person posted a big long opinion and then tagged a question to the end just to make it legit? Kind of screws with everyone, huh?

          Yes, someone ASKING for clarification or a new question related to the original question is OK, HOWEVER someone who is not in LE answering the question is more the issue.

              So as I did this morning, when Bodie asked about Ending Officer Alcohol Abuse, The proper thing for me to have done as a non LEO was to re-post over in the general section?????
              This is fine with me because Bodie may of only wanted answers from people that claimed to be Leo
