I did a Halloween patrol at Plymouth Center. I parallel parked at a small store. I did encounter a few "crazies", however there were no problems and neither started any conflict. I helped fix a sign that was fallen, knowing the forecast for this weekend. Since it was Halloween, I saw some people in costumes trick or treating, my favorite was the Iron Man & Black Widow costumes as the couple entered a Mexican restaurant. I was going to try for the Waterfront, but the road was closed at the turn, real awkward knowing there was a convenience store nearby at the corner. As the patrol ended I'm starting to get a better hand on night patrols, as I regained a lot of my confidence knowing I'm doing my job well.

Tonight I did my once a week patrol in Plymouth Center. I parked in a different spot, which was hard because it was a Saturday night there. I worked with a skullcap for the first time, so I would remain mysterious but not arouse suspicion, which was [perfect in the night time. I walked briskly so not arouse suspicion and to get a read of my area. Since it was near Halloween I heard some screams but nothing much, as it was a family getting a laugh. I didn't arouse suspicion since they were all smiles which was a good thing. I covered more area than last time, which improved my confidence. I ended well, and I'm more than ready for next week.
