October 31, 2014

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.

October 25, 2014

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.
