Callout Shift

Another platoon was short staffed so I took a call out shift to help out.  I took a report of a found child’s bicycle in someone’s yard and was able to locate the rightful owner and return it.  Returning property to anyone is rewarding, returning it to a smiling child is especially rewarding.  Prior to lunch I was dispatched to a report of an assault and ended up tied up for most of the early afternoon taking statements and locating the suspect.  Shortly before the end of shift I saw an MVI take place on the highway.  Fortunately no one was seriously hurt.

Callout shift

One of the platoons was short today so I worked an overtime shift to help out.  The shift began with a report of a missing and possibly suicidal person.  I attended the home, spoke to a close friend and began the investigation.  Based in the initial information we broadcast the person’s description and vehicle across the lower mainland.  Fortunately it turned out to be a misunderstanding and the person was located at work but on a different job site.  As I was clearing that report up we had a report of a residential break and enter where the home owner was home and confronted the suspect before the suspect fled.  Unfortunately we weren’t able to locate a vehicle that matched the description but luckily nothing was taken and no one was hurt.
