When a civillian does a ride-along with you what types of questions do you like to hear from them? Do you want them to be taking notes during the ride-along? Are there any types of question you don't like recieving? I know people will say it varies from officer to officer depending on who you are riding with but I would just like general answers to these questions.What makes someone a hero? According to the dictionary a hero is someone, typically a man, who is admired for courage or noble qualities. In the dictionary heros are also known as the chief male character in a book, play, or movie, who is typically identified with good qualities. A hero is someone who walks into your life as it is crumbling to pieces and is there for you when it seems like the rest of the world is walking out.

sit back and enjoy the ride. if you are doing the ride along for school then take notes. if you are doing the ride along to see if you want to be the police then be a sponge and soak it all up. i dont like personal questions. for your safety immediately do what the officers says, he might not have time to explain till later.

on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."

The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

I guess I'm a little different. If it isn't a personal/family question ask away.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

I agree, Lew, but by pry, I mean don't try to second guess the officer or any decisions they make. They have a reason for why they do what they do, and if they want you to know, they'll tell you.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

Ask whatever you want, if I don't feel like answering then I'll tell you so. There's nothing specific that I'm hoping you'll ask. Take notes if you want, but unless you're doing the ride for school I'm going to think that you're weird. If you do need to take notes, I'd be happy to let you copy interesting stuff off of my call log later so that you can actually enjoy the ride.
As long as you seem to be taking an active interest, and you can hold down your half of a reasonably intelligent conversation, we'll get along just fine.
