Lt. Frederick V. Roussey is always warning younger police officers to be careful on the job. He's not so worried about gun-toting criminals. He's more worried about how officers handle the cars they hop into, lights flashing and sirens blaring, to head to a crime.
"You tell these kids, `If you get yourself in an accident on the way to the scene, you're not doing anybody any good,'" said Roussey, a 27-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department.
