    Dear Chief,

    Stuff happens, even when we are trying our level best to do a difficult job.

    That is why I always take the time to shut and lock the doors on my patrol car. It takes a few extra seconds but I would rather call a perimeter and get the guy with a K9 than to have him steal my car, my rifle and my dignity.

    He'll make captain a lot quicker with that kind of tactical thinking. :tongueout:

    I'm sure nobody in the department will ever mention that he got his car stolen...:supergrin:

    That suspect will be a legend in the county jail...

    ...right up until he is sentenced.

    Could happen to any of us. I know I don't always remember to pull my keys when I step out of the car for a few seconds (not to mention when adrenaline is pumping on a hot call like this foot pursuit), and it doesn't take much longer than that for a BG to take advantage if he really wants to.

    All police cars should have some kind of intelligent RKE.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure some of our highway patrol cars are equipped with a kill switch that needs to be disengaged in order to put the car in drive.

    Many patrols cars are so equipped, but the operator still has to activate the ignition override and remove the key first. Many times that's not done (key is left in the ignition like any other car) if the officer is just hopping out of the car for a few seconds, or forgets amidst an adrenaline rush as mentioned.
