In an attempt to highlight each department, I accidentally removed some links. It is too late for me to insert them now.

I remind everyone that I will tolerate none of the bullshit comments I often see in other police stories. Your comments must add something. I am not interested in snide judgmental comments about cops, suspects or victims.
