I went on a ride along about two years ago. It was in one of the worst neighborhoods in town. The first two call were gun calls. One of them, a guy was driving around with a shotgun looking for his mother in law.
We never saw either of them, but I kinda' understood the mother in law guy.
We went with detectives through some crackheads place. He was a "Person of Interest" in a homicide.
There was lots of fast driving and the officer I was paired with was a cool and good guy.
One call was for a woman that was freaked out to the max. She was psychotic. Fire was called and took her away to the nut hut.
We went for dinner at a Chinese place and met up with two very nice female Leo's.
So, it was very interesting and fun and I would definitely do it again.
