    "Non-standard supplies"

    Ok, the thread on the officer giving the 11-year old crash victim a beanie-baby prompted this question. What kind of "psychological aides" do some of you carry. Like the stuffed animal for frightened kids or maybe cigarettes to give to someone even though you don't smoke. Are there extra things you carry with you for these types of situations?

    One of the best things to have that is uber-multi purpose is a dog leash. But, um, cat food/treats, lighters, and of course, my whip.

    There's more, but I can't think of it off-hand.

    I carry baseball cards and stuffed animals in the car. Reason being is there is a lot of kids in my area and most of them run to the car wanting cards. I carry stuffed animals for the small kids that are scared because of a situation at home.

    I carry stuffed animals. About a month ago I had to investigate a rape of mentally retarded 15 yr old female (with the IQ of a 7 yr old), who was raped by someone who knew her. After I interviewed her (which even had her mother in tears), her face lit up when I gave her that stuffed teddy bear. I'll never forget it. The mother hugged me.

    Keep teady bears in your cars!

    Purell Hand sanitizer. That stuff is awsome and you can get it in little pocket sized bottles. They fit right in your cargo pants or shirt pockets. I'm not a sanitary freak, but I use it all the time.

    Cop cards and stickers. The kids all know the stickers and constantly run up to the cruiser asking for them. The rest(adults) get a free ride to jail for societal re-education......

    To bad that re-education is not always efective. For some reason there are people out there that need it multiple times.

    For some reason it seems a good 40-60% just think the cops are out to get them and the thought of "changing' never crosses their mind.

    I carry a lot of baseball cards, football cards, hockey cards, etc. Along with stickers. Kids love stickers.

    I carry junior cop badges. We also have sticker badges. I have several stuffed bears.

    I keep some candy or mints in my bag because I've dealt with several diabetics who were crashing (sugar) hard.

    I also keep a couple matchbox cars in my bag for crash investigations. I bring them out when subjects keep changing their minds on where the vehicle were positioned. With the cars I let them position them where they think they were located.

    I have a couple of stuffed animals, stickers, dog leash, dog/cat treats, halter (we get a lot of loose horses and llamas), some candy stashed in my glove box (otherwise my captain gets in my car and steals it) and of course the hand sanitizer.
    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.

    I'm not a cop, but I'm asking a question so I think it's okay.

    Does anyone keep little bowls to give a dog a drink of bottled water? They're nice to have when, for whatever reason, a family is restricted from re-entering the home, and it's been a while since their dog has had something to drink.

    Especially after a fire, there's water water everywhere and not a drop for a poor little doggy to drink.

    I had to work the road last week and we got a call about 3 horses loose in the roadway. I got all the way out there and got out and looked..I'll be damned those weren't horses they were llamas....Hard as hell to catch...we coralled them with the patrol car, then got their attention by shaking cheerios in a metal pan, I guess they thought it was dinner time...After about an hour or so we finally got them where they needed to be...

    We have those emu birds get out around here a lot too...them things are very hard to catch, imagine an ostrich like bird running loose on a 4 lane highway and seeing a few officers trying to catch one...that was us about a month ago...Finally one of the other guys roped the damn bird and we all dragged him down the road...or did he drag us for a while...anyways we bout killed the bird, but got him safely home where the owner did kill him a few weeks later and sent us some of the product....if we would have known that we would have shot the damn thing that day lol

    Yeah, those are the same ones who lack any personal resposibility for their actions too.

    I dont know where the heck all the stuffed animals come from but our department keeps a stock of them for us to put in our cars.

    I helped a kid in a wreck, he was scared to death. I got one of my stuffed animals and gave it to him and it seemed to make him better instantly. Plus I think its nice to give kids stuff because so many kids already have a bad mindset about cops.

    Junior police badges, probably hand out ten a day. Also vicks vapo rub for various "odors." I Have a decent length of static kermantle rescue rope that can support some ridiculous weight(a few thousand lbs), barrier masks(everyone should have), a few changes of socks, extra belt keepers, matches, allen key set, sunscreen, and a pr-24(rare in these days of asps and expandables), and a bike lock.
