Station Officer Pulls RD Number For Accident

Good morning, everyone, it's 4pm. It's a hot late spring afternoon with temps in the 90s. It's partly cloudy, and actually, some storms are forecasted for later. This afternoon, I'm monitoring 14, mainly because of the Puerto Rican Festival and related events. The festivities started on Thursday, but I didn't monitor on Thursday and I was monitoring 25 yesterday, so my attention will be on 14 today. Due to the many problems there were last year, I'm listening again in case something happens. Just for today, my coverage boundaries of 14 will be expanded just a bit. I will be monitoring all the way to Division today, west of Western Ave., to include all of Beat 1422 as well as Beat 1423. I don't usually cover that area, since it's outside of my traditional boundaries, but I'm making an exception for today.
