You arrive on the scene whatever the call may be, auto accident, crime scene, suspicious person. You pull up and get out of your cruiser. Do you ever take notice to the pavement or surface you are about to step onto? Well maybe you should. You want to know what your footing is going to be, is it slippery, is it an uneven surface, pot holes, glass, gasoline, ice, sand, sometimes blood. All these things can leave you flat on your back or in a bad position to deal with a subject. Next time you arrive on the scene, just take notice to what's under your feet.
