Why is there never a cop around when you need them? Have you ever said or thought that before? Or, why aren’t officers stopping that speeding vehicle or stopping people running stop signs, etc. We frequently get requests to address certain problems or work in certain areas and we are constantly trying to meet those needs. Calls for service always come first, but when we’re not otherwise engaged, we’ll do what we can.
Here is the one report call from yesterday’s 27 calls for service.
20020600: On February 6, 2020, at about 10:23 a.m., Officer Raab responded to a Collision Hit & Run. The victim reported they were working when a customer came in to report a white truck had side-swiped their vehicle. The incident was caught on camera from a nearby business. It showed the suspect vehicle traveling westbound very slowly along the curb, roll over the curb, down the sidewalk and to collide with the victim’s vehicle, then back into the parking lot where it paused at the exit, then merged right into westbound traffic. Come on, man. How is that okay? We’ve attached a still photo of the truck and we are working on identifying the owner. It would be easiest if they would come to us, so we can just complete the accident report. Don’t make us come find you.
That’s it for today, Jackson. We are still in for some difficult weather in the next couple of days, so plan ahead and drive safe.
