Who is MC?

I’m a police officer in the Great State of California (says so on the seal). I’m fortunate to be one of those assigned to two wheels.  I’ve been a police officer for somewhere between three and thirty years.  My age is indeterminate.  You may think you know where I work.  You are wrong.

What I detail here is culled from years of experience and training.  My aim is to entertain, educate, and (from time to time) unload.  The stories I tell here vary from ones I have personally experienced to ones I have witnessed.  The timetables I claim may or may not be accurate.  That is to say a story I reference may have happened last week, last month or last year.  I take a lot of literary license.  If you think you were involved in one of those calls, the odds are against you.

My employer (to the best of my knowledge) is aware of my little corner of the interwebs; however, they do not endorse what I write.  Make no mistake, I am not here representing my department.  The opinions I reference are mine and mine alone.  Keep in mind my first aim above was “entertain”.  I am not familiar with your department’s policies, so don’t go saying, “MC said I should XYZ” because you’ll probably get fired.  If you are a civilian and are offended by the things I write, you should assume that whatever I wrote was written with sarcasm and tongue firmly planted in cheek.

Is that me? I’ll never tell.

My hope is that I elicit an occasional chuckle or perhaps a guffaw.  In this blog, you will find tips and tricks, periodic questions to challenge your decision-making in my somewhat regular Ask MC series, and shenanigans a-plenty.

You will often find me referencing my partner in crime, Happy Medic.  You can click on The Crossover Show tab to hear us live and (sort of) in person.

I tend to use a bit of the cop jargon in my writing.  If you are wondering what in the world I’m talking about,  check the glossary…which I have yet to create.

Most of my ramblings will be Law Enforcement related, but I will reference other topics as my mood dictates.  I’m more than merely a police officer.  I’m a dad, husband, writer, and Christ follower.  I’ll touch on all of those things from time to time.  Mostly, though, you’ll get an insider’s look at what life looks like from the saddle of a motor.  *Cue Bon Jovi’s Wanted Dead or Alive.
