|Favorite Quote||1. YOU CANT OUT RUN THE RADIO
( no matter how fast someone is if you can at least keep them in sight and give good info on the radio to other units, bad guys can’t get away)
2. IN LIKE A LAMB, OUT LIKE A LION
( when dealing with people even people that are yelling and angry., you can’t go into it yelling too, if you go into already escalated yourself there is no where else for you to go and that situation will almost always go from bad to worse, but if you go into it even tempered you can escalate as needed)
3. YOU WANT TO GO TO JAIL OR DO YOU WANT TO GO HOME?
( when I have someone on something that I can arrest for but I don’t necessarily have to arrest them and I need info and they are not quite willing to give it up…they may get that question)
