Police Shift Operations
Roll Call/Shift Briefing; Officer Preparation for Duty Prior to the Start of the Shift/Watch
The shift briefing was done in a meeting that equipped the officers the information they needed to hit the street. The meeting involved calling of the roll, a short briefing by the police seniors, followed by a standup inspection by the shift supervisor. The roll call was also conducted to inform the officers about the colleagues who would accompany them in their patrol areas.
Police Activities and/or Calls for Service
The police officer received more than five calls for service in the duration I spend with him. Three of the calls of service involved cases of street violence while one was a case for domestic violence and another one was a case for a road accident.
