Keep an eye on 'household items'


When you enter a residence or a person’s garage in response to a trouble call, be sure that in addition to watching for “typical” weapons like firearms you stay alert for other things lying around that could be used as improvised weapons. Keep in mind the danger that can be posed by kitchen knives, forks, scissors, baseball bats and other potential impact weapons, chairs that could easily be hurled, sharp yard implements, etc.
