Enjoy this historical police video called “This Is Your Police Department.” Filmed in 1951, this police film follows “Joe” through a career with the Detroit Police Department. I don’t know what is better: the crossdraw uniform holster or the drunk blowing up a balloon for breath testing. Of course, rolling to a “family trouble” call in a “scout car” may be the best.
Police videos like this should be mandatory viewing for all new recruits. It would give them a sense of where the profession has been and how good we’ve got it now.
