On patrol, forget the perfume, aftershave, and cologne

The other day I was in the locker room when a young patrolman came in. I immediately smelled the heavy odor of his aftershave. I thought, "If I can smell him across a locker room, a Bad Guy can smell him in a building search."

Remember: Take advantage of stealth and surprise, and use them to your advantage. Don’t let the bad guys see (or smell) you coming! Save the aftershave, cologne, and other smelly stuff for a date or time spent with that special person.

Be safe out there!
