I guess this will be a thread to just BS about a really good day or a really bad day...or just your shift in general
Today started out like any normal saturday dayshift in my region...pretty slow...tying up loose ends left over from the night before (vehicle break ins etc)...
Sometime shortly after lunch, central put out that a victim was chasing 2 male subjects on foot after they broke into his car
Now...at this point...NO ONE on my squad is on a call...and the subjects had run into a neighborhood with only 2 entrance/exits
we start circulating the area pretty heavily...and i turn a corner and 2 dudes matching the description take off...i locate 1 and another officer takes him into custody...then a neighbor shows me where the other dude is hiding...i locate him...as i grab his wrist to put him in cuffs...here we go...foot pursuit
he made it approx. 20 feet before i caught him
2 in custody for theft from motor vehicle
fast forward to 530pm
I run a tag and it comes back to another vehicle...i initiate a traffic stop...guy pulls into a gas station...here we go again...foot pursuit...we hit a heavily wooded area after about 200 yards of full sprint and i lost sight of him
we initially tried tracking with K9 with no success, and we had an officer go over to where the tag was registered to...and the owner promptly IDed the driver and described him...BINGO!
to add to his 2 outstanding warrants, He now has 5 more
It's been a long time since I've been in a foot pursuit...even longer since I was the initiating officer...and I dont think i've ever had 2 in 1 day
Today was also the first time i've lost a suspect on a foot pursuit...kinda sucks!
