    I've had to lend them cuffs and twist-flexies, and once had to siphon a couple of gallons of gasoline (we were out way back of beyond) so the LEO could get back to civilization.

    I have been asked many times by local LEOs to borrow my pen. I have also lent them note pads and blank trespass warnings as well. It happens from time to time.....

    Be safe,

    Hank

    You know.. All my peeps keep stealing my pens, because I use those kewl Gel-pens and they are like hot cakes!

    I just radio an officer to meet with me somewhere, and use his pen! LOL

    BTW I wasn't joking. I can no longer read out of my left eye. I undergo lazer treatments (to stop the bleeding) every month or 2 & last month they tried injecting Corizone (sp?) into the eye to try & stop the swelling. NOT FUN!

    I can relate. So now, keeping with the seven P's principle (Proper Planning and Preparation Prevents Pi$$ Poor Performance) I TRY make it a point to have at least 2 pens on me at all times, at work one in my shirt and another in my left pants pocket. Adopting a no "pen borrowing" policy is also an option, although somewhat anal retentive. I remember the old show "the Commish" with Tony Scali, who was always borrowing a pen...

    Keep in mind also that pens are another way to transfer germs from one person to another too.

    Seriously though, I carry one of those Fisher space pens everywhere with me...3.5 inches closed, it just hides unobtrusively in my pocket. Someone asked me why I had a pen and an LED flashlight in my pockets once. They ride everywhere with me, along with my CCW weapon of choice and a folding pocketknife or multi-tool.

    My reply was also in the form of a question:

    How many times have you needed your CCW piece versus how many times you've needed a flashlight or pen?

    Be prepared, it's the Boy Scout marching song.

    As a young Det.Sgt. I once showed up at a bank robbery without a gun. I had been in the office and ran out the door without my gun that was secured in the gun locker.

    Normally that would not be a problem - except when the robber was caught he gave a statement that he was on a rooftop overlooking an alley and saw me and another officer walking in the alley. He stated that if we turned around and spotted him he was going to shoot us. He was armed with a 44 magnum. I received a three day suspension.

    Lesson learned.

    I used to tell that story to recruits at the Acadamy - they always got a chuckle out of it.
    Oops...

    Certainly not the end of the world but it does not give me confidence in her. i took Police Technology 30 years ago. I can still hear one of the teachers drilling into us: "A short pencil is better than a long memory"!
