IamA Police Officer Who Does a Lot of DWI Work. AMA!
My short bio: I've been in law enforcement for just shy of a decade now, and a LOT of my proactive work is DWI-related. Someone said I should do an AMA so... here I am. I'm in southern Louisiana and should point out that laws, procedures, etc. vary a LOT by state, especially DWI laws.
My Proof: I've uploaded several screenshots of various systems we use at work, a screen grab from my dash cam which shows the push bumper on my unit, and a photo of my handcuffs with a handwritten post-it. Let me know if I need to submit anything else.
AMA about DWI work or police work in general! I'm doing my best to maintain anonymity here, but just in case it becomes an issue: any statements here are my own and do not reflect the opinion of my employing agency. (Also: any of my coworkers who are somehow able to figure out who I am, plz to not be doxxing me, kthx.)
Edit #1: This is fun so far. I should be up for another hour or so! I feel so popular, and like I've earned the right to be mentioned in the great AMA History Books. Right up there with the vacuum guy.
Edit #2: OK, getting tired. Today was a long day. But I will check back later and answer what I can!
Edit #3: Thanks all, this was fun.
