"Generally police work is for the young(er), aggressive officers. I have a squad with fairly experienced (senior) officers. The officer in the picture is Preston Brown who turned 65 years old when this was taken."
"Now, being his sergeant, I just had a conversation with him on felony observed arrests. This was both motivational and officer safety minded in the conversation."
"Well, young Officer Brown turns around on this moped for a traffic violation and gets involved in a pursuit with what turned out to be a stolen moped. In just a short time, he had bolstered his observed felony arrests by 200% with an Attempting to Elude a Marked Police Vehicle and Possession of Stolen Property 2 — both felonies in the State of Washington."
"So, even mature officers can get motivated and get felony arrests like the young(er) officers."
