    I took one years ago that was pretty similar. It also had a lot of maps with one way streets. You go from point A to point B, name the streets you would take, how many blocks etc.

    Well, as nearly as I can tell, Jim killed the victim after robbing the espresso stand while fleeing from the DV and was going up at the time.


    How'd I do Term? Can I be a cop?

    Number 9 is a bad question. It says it is "desirable" to have an officer every 3 blocks, but does not say how many blocks an officer is "needed" for. So really there should be an answer that you can't determine the answer from the information given.

    You know with budget cuts that depts. aren't staffing at desirable levels, but instead only paying the minimum amount needed. Or at least thats how my dept. operates anymore. Events that we once had 30 officers work.... we now only have 8 working them.
    CHIRP! CHIRP!

    Man... can they get any harder. I realize there is usually only one good answer but It still took me 20min to figure this one out.

    8. You respond to a report of a domestic violence at a residence. The husband comes to the door and reports everything is fine. What should you do?

    A) Bum a smoke and tell him dirty jokes.
    B) Tell him that his shoes are untied, when he looks down to check hit him with your PR24.
    C) Tell the husband that its OK to smacka bitch from time to time especially if she burns your chicken pot pie.
    D) Request to speak to the wife and get both sides of the situation
