A LESSON IN 

COMPLACENCY

NJLawman.com

Thursday, July 15, 2004  12:00 a.m.

You’re in the last hours of a boring midnight shift when the radio sounds, “Headquarters to Unit blah, blah, blah, respond to headquarters for someone turning themselves in on a warrant.”

Off you go. You think to yourself, “It’s now 6:00 a.m. At least it will keep me off the road til the end of the shift.”

When you arrive at the station you learn that the “walk-in arrest’ is a female who's acting a bit bizarre.

You shuffle her back to the processing room where you begin on the paperwork.  Hopefully you can get her in and out so you can start winding down.

Once you complete the initial processing, you start escorting her back to a secure area to get her ready for the trip to the county jail.

On the way back she pulls a handgun.

This is a true story and valuable lesson in complacency. It occurred in the last week of June in Charlotte, North Carolina. When the woman pulled the gun, she threatened to kill herself. Fortunately, the deputies wrestled it away from her, and no one was hurt.

How many times could this have happened to you?  Do you thoroughly search everyone who turns themselves in on an outstanding warrant?   If you do, good.

If not, read this story again.
