September is here! Do you know what that means? Summer is over, school is back in session, and there is a lot more traffic to and from work. I hope everyone had a good summer and was able to get in some invaluable personal time for themselves and with their families.
As we go into September, we will be celebrating Labor Day, which falls on the first Monday of the month.
This month I wanted to take the opportunity to remind everyone about the dangers and responsibilities of driving a police vehicle. During my last sixteen years as a sergeant in traffic homicide, I witnessed many police involved crashes that injured and, in some cases, killed officers.
The official last day of summer is September 22nd, and by now everyone has returned home from their summer vacations and trips with the family. The kids are back to school and our busy lives resume. Remember when you were young and in school and it seemed like summer break was long and the school year dragged? But, as you get older, you realize that the years fly by.
The month of September is here. Wow, this year is flying by. Although we are more than halfway through the year, a lot of people don’t realize that this new administration here at the PBA has only been on the job for seven months. Despite the short time on the job, we have changed the culture here at the PBA ensuring that we are more member services oriented.
With just a few months left in hurricane season we must always be prepared living in South Florida.
Hurricane season officially started on June 1st and will end on November 30th. In September 2017, Hurricane Irma had an impact on all our lives. It was unfortunate that many of the law enforcement agencies were not prepared to deal with the events.
