    Here in the Cincinnati, Ohio area, we've got a Police/Fire Department.

    All Officers also work at Firefighters, and are expected to handle fire calls on and off duty.

    I know someone from the upper peninsula of MI and he says they have a few of these up there.

    New York City has the ESU or whatever, they are police officers but do rescue work and whatnot.

    Hopefully someone will come enlighten me on this.

    Years ago a small city up here tried to create a "Public Safety Dept" - sent their cops through the fire academy and their firefighters through the police reserve academy. The idea was that the personnel could be interchanged for vacations or whatnot. This lasted about two years (about as long as the mayor was in office!) and it was decided the two disciplines were just too different.

    Well, DUH!;Q

    Police officers at DFW Airport in Dallas, Texas are cross-trained in PD/FD. My EMT class instructor used to work there as a Police Officer/Firefighter.

    Sunnyvale is a DPS. Rohnert Park was about a decade ago, but now I don't know. Brisbane used to be but they split up about a decade ago. Our old chief wanted to do it but the city never went for it.
