Another Cop Moment

Reached another police work milestone last week. 

Realized that I know just about everyone in my beat that I need to know.  Prostitutes, dealers, bums and vagrants.  I'd like to meet more of the local residents who live in the area, but there's a level of distrust towards cops in general.  They tend to shy away unless we are absolutely needed. 

I now know all the professors and staff on campus, too.  They all know me. 

This is a good thing.  I'm able to work with these people, the good and bad. 

It helps to be proactive.
