Good afternoon, everyone, it's 5:08pm. Today has been a tiring day, but it's a three day weekend. I plan on doing some relaxing. Anyway, as you probably know, I attended my Beat meeting last night. I have to say, going for the first time ever, it was really interesting. So interesting that I'm going again next month. I found out A TON of information that I didn't know before. Stuff I don't hear on the scanner. I can tell you the rest, but it may take up this entire post. Would you all like me to do a separate post for my observations on last night? Also, tonight is going to be cloudy with lows in the 60s. Tomorrow, we'll have some rain with highs in the 70s. Here is crime for this afternoon and evening.
