Harding Alley Is Blocked

Good afternoon, everyone, it's 3:59pm. Really glad to be home. School was good, but the bus ride back home was just plain crazy. I'm not going to talk about it, though. Anyway, it's cooler out today that it's been in the last week. Lots of rain, too. But it's going to dry up and we'll have a sunny day tomorrow. I'll monitor 25 tomorrow morning. I didn't do it this morning because I figured it was too rainy for anything to be happening. Here's crime for this afternoon.

About 4:53 to 5:43pm - I fell asleep :(. Sorry.

5:52pm - Beat 2540 is giving a slow down on the 5:50pm call.

5:53pm - Someone just ran into the laundromat, screaming that a guy's got a gun. 2540 may give a flash on it.

It never fails to amaze me that the bangers only come out in nice, warm weather. Some tough bunch, eh?

What does it mean when they do a "slow down"? I see that quite often but don't know why that procedure. Thanks for all you do!

I agree, Pro. Anyway, a slow down means that units going to the scene don't need to come with lights and sirens to the scene. And/or, they don't need so many units.
