    “The body is designed to improve communication between residents and local police officers.”

    – Why are there so many of you?
    – Why are you always driving so fast?
    – Why are two or three of you parked in a lot chatting it up like middle school girls?
    – Why are you always on your cell phones driving?

      1. Because we have a lot of Sec 8 housing, so that requires a lot of officers.
      2. They are driving on our dime… don’t you want them to get where they are going fast?
      3. They are parked in the Hunters Woods parking lot, preemptively.
      4. They are calling their partners and telling them to head to Shadowood.

      • Constitutional Conservative

        1. Being poor is not a crime (especially when the national median income wins you Sec 8 housing in Reston)
        2. Turn on the siren if you’ve got somewhere to go
        3. More crime happens in the town center
        4. More crime happens in the apts east of South Lakes

          And don’t turn them on just to speed through a red light. Then turn them off.

    • John Higgins

      The injected “always” is telling. The characterization of chats between team members (or supervisor/subordinate) as somehow inappropriate is odd. If you really have such questions, request a “ride along”. My guess it that it would be an eye opener.

        “Doctor I think you hit a nerve….”
