Takedowns, Spotlight, wig wags. I agree with Collim, I always call in the stop before I activate my lights. In PTO, I was trained to do it simultaneously, but I hated doing it when they short stopped or if someone else got on the radio that instant (which happens a lot) and now you're on a stop without calling it in (or you sit and wait and call it in, which is just as bad).

I studied the maps for hours and when I got on my own, I called it in prior to stopping the car. Always worked out for me. If I had to update the location of the stop, so be it. At least I'd be within a block or so if it went bad and people could get to me.
