“Attention all LEO’s and those of you who are new to this site- posted 9-23-2007:

I have been on this site for a while. And, I want you guys to take heed. I mean this in the strongest terms.

It’s ok to talk about our work and to give some advise and input to people who inquire. And it’s ok to quack amongst yourselves about work related matters.

BUT, doggone it: THIS IS A PUBLIC SITE !!!

Be very careful not to put out for public consumption tactics, internal intelligence and practices and protocols that are considered breaching officer safety practices and/or information that your agency doesn’t print on the Opinion Page of your local paper.

I am seeing people talk about tactics on our procedures on handling terrorist activity, back-up guns, officer involved shootings, internal confidential info that only is going to get someone hurt or compromise your safety.

Don’t let your ego get in the way. You don’t need to provide information on this very public website to prove who you are or to impress someone on this site.

Have a good time. But, please, do not “give away your position”.

Thanks, The Sarge.

p.s. I will be taking a very proactive approach to postings that could be deemed compromising.”
