    An interesting series

    So this is a fairly new series airing over here in the UK. Follows Cheshire Police's vehicle workshop/garage. Gives a pretty good insight into what goes on around the vehicular side of Police as well as dealing with budgeting and equipment

    Who'd have thunk it?

    Back when our Government wasn't spending it's money on 4th houses for it's leaders and surveys on how to most expensively fix a road that isn't broken, they did useful things like this!

    PC Keith Palmer - Metropolitan Police

    Doubtless as many of you have now heard of the incident that happened in London, it is with deep sadness that the Police Officer who attempted to stop the attacker, and was subsequently stabbed, has died of his wounds. The ever thin blue line, once again gets thinner. :( Sourced from the Met...

    So what has ELB's resident immigrant been doing?

    No, not Garza. I have been having a nightmare of a bad time recently, and things got only ever increasingly bad and frustrating yesterday when the US Immigration Services deposited a letter into my postbox detailing their intent to deny my petition to become a 10 year green card holder, and...

    A new form of REACT?

    Found this photo the other day, this is the hood/bonnet of the Brush truck come Humvee at the Volly FD in my old AL town. No, I don't know what it means either.  But I do know that the Humvee was leased to the PD, and they allowed the FD to use it.
