Emergency: How to record a suspect's description?

One of the most important responsibilities of local law enforcement agencies is to keep the cities safe.

  • What is safety?>/li>
  • Is safety the sole responsibility of law enforcement agencies?
  • Can you protect yourself in an emergency situation such as a theft, robbery, assault?

To understand the meaning of the term 'safety' it is important to study the crime rate in the area you live/work. Usually, places with a lower crime rate are considered safe and vice versa. While the law enforcement agencies are responsible for creating a safe environment for us, it is our duty to be vigilant and socially responsible as well. It is never a good idea to try to play 'hero' in such situations. Instead you should be vigilant about your surroundings and make mental notes on suspicious persons or vehicles. You can always help the agencies by giving a good description of what you see. Train yourself to look for important information on suspicious persons or vehicles. Suspect Description Make note of the following information on suspicious persons and then call the police at 911.

  • Sex
  • Race
  • Age
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Complexion
  • Hair color
  • Eyes/color of eyes
  • Glasses
  • Clothing : Color of coat/shirt/pants/shoes
  • Accessories: Hat, bracelet, etc.
  • Tattoos
  • Scars/Marks
  • Additional information

Vehicle Description

  • Color
  • Make
  • Model
  • License Plate/State
  • Direction of Travel
  • Any damage to the vehicle
  • Additional Information
  • The above is not high science. You just have to be vigilant and careful, and this requires training yourself to observe the most important information when you see a suspicious person or vehicle. It's hardly surprising that many crimes and accidents are prevented due to the input from callers who give good suspect descriptions on phone

Day Light Savings Time

Day Light Saving

In US, there is no consistency in the day and night span. Here the days are very short in winter, and very long in summers. So, the time is set in such a way, so as to make the maximum use of the day light. Hence, it is so called "Day Light Saving". It is changed twice every year. Note (Change in DTS in 2007): Beginning in 2007, most of the U.S. will begin Daylight Savings Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and revert to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time.

  • The clock is reset back in Fall Season, by one hour on the first Sunday of November at 2:00 A.M.
  • Clock is once again reset forward in Spring Season, by one hour on the second Sunday of March at 2:00 A.M.

** Some parts of Arizona, Hawaii and Indiana are not affected by this day light saving change. Want to know more about Day light saving and clock reset? checkout the following. When and why do we change our clocks?
