Safety Tips for Eating in Public(Secure - Login Required)


In light of yet another report of an officer being targeted for attack while eating, consider these tips for keeping yourself safe in a public eatery, particularly while in uniform.

Take a close look at your food before digging in. Lift the bun, stir the soup, poke around the salad, etc. while watching for foreign objects or substances. Also consider smelling your food before taking your first bite. Last month an officer was seriously injured after biting into a burrito laced with cleaning solution. Taking a whiff before eating might help sniff out a silent but effective attack.
