 Working the beat in subzero temperatures
 Interviewing George Zimmerman’s girlfriend
 January 8, 2014
Dear PoliceOne Member,

The so-called "polar vortex" which has gripped most of North America for more than a week continues unabated. Subzero temperatures have smashed records in dozens of cities — 15 new records were set just yesterday — and there have been at least 21 cold-related deaths across the United States to date.

Today we feature some resources to help get you safely through this rough patch of weather. PoliceOne Columnist Pat Novesky offers some safety tips to keep you warm, dry, and properly equipped with working gear. I reprise a tip I'd written a couple of years ago about driving in foul winter weather, and to help you "grin and bear it" we offer a humorous feature on the Top 10 'perks' to patrolling in the snow.

Stay safe out there.
