Vehicle Incidents and Issues

The Vehicle Incidents and Issues topic deals with issues related to specialized patrols like motorcycle units as well as vehicular risks and challenges to law enforcement, including vehicle crashes involving police and vehicular assaults against officers. From single-car traffic accidents to high-speed pursuits, most law enforcement injuries and fatalities occur in, or immediately outside of, a police officer’s vehicle.

Ga. cop demonstrates danger of a hot cars to kids and pets

A Forsyth County (Ga.) Sheriff's officer volunteered to sit in a patrol car to demonstrate the danger of hot car to children, pets, elderly or anyone unattended in a hot parked car. In seven minutes his pulse rate doubled from the heat stress and after 20 minutes the dashboard temperature was 177 degrees.

Yesterday, I "volunteered" to sit in a HOT patrol car to demonstrate why NOT to leave children, pets, or anyone unattended in a hot parked car. Many of you may have seen the video from WSB-TV (link below), here is a more in depth behind the scenes video from that demonstration. http://bcove.me/7vsk6224
