Rding on a cop's

beat

(Continued from Page 1)
We were on the road again
and heading to the station for a
10-5. LaVack did not know what
they wanted him to do there -
the radio code meant only that
he should return to base.
We crawled through the traf-
fic backlog east of State on
Huron and found a space for the
patrolcar outside the main en-
trance to the station.
"That's the hardest part of
this job sometimes, finding a
place to park at City Hall."
We had still, after an hour
on patrol, not visited our as-
signed area. The single unit is
usually assigned to the lo w
crime" Area Two."
Area Two covers the South-
west corner of Ann Arbor, from
Liberty to Main, to Stadium to
Miller, and back to Liberty.
LaVack's assignment now was

We finally came up
with a beautiful picture
of aVolkswagen.
A Volkswagen starts looking good when
everything else starts looking bad.
Let's say it's late at night and you can't
sleep. It's 10 below and you forgot to put
antifreeze in your car.
(A Volkswageh doesn't use antifreeze.
Its engine is cooled by air.)
Let's say it'snow morning: You start your
car and the gas gauge reads Empty.
(Even with a gallon left, you should go
aipproximately 26 miles in a VW.)
Let's say you notice on your way out of
the driveway that every other car on your
block is stuck in the snow.
(A VW goes very well in snow because
the engine is in the back. It gives the rear
wheels much better traction.)
Let's say you make it into town and the
only parking space is half a space between
a snow plow and a big, fat wall.
(A VW is small enough to fit into half a
parking space.)
Let's say it's now 9:15 a.m. and the only
other guy in the office is your boss.
(Now what could be more beautiful than
that?)

The two passengers were de-

door latch. The back doors only
opened from the outside - I
got out of the car to let him
out.
LaVack and I sat in the car
until they drove away, t h e n
called in a "10-27" signifying
we were "on patrol."
City police cars are not equip-
ped, as are sheriff's department
vehicles, with special high pow-
er engines and thus they are no
faster than a comparable civil-
ian car. LaVack accelerated up
the ramp onto U.S. 23 south
from Stadium Blvd. and as we
hit the freeway, the brakelights
of decelerating cars were vis-
ible in front of us.
Normally the city police do
not issue speeding violations on
the freeways around the city
as the city limits are so ill de-
fined that cars pass in and out
of their jurisdictional area con-
tinuously. However, as we left
the freeway a Mercedes sports
car ahead of us had a broken
turn reflector.
Our toplight went on and with
a few blimps of the horn La-
Vack stopped the car.

lights to the rear. Can I see your
driver's license and registra-
tion?"
The driver of the car, a young
man with longish hair, looked
irritated but he handed LaVack
his license, gave me a look of
chagrin and sat back in his seat
while we went to the patrol car
to radio in a LEIN check.
LEIN, the Law Enforcement
Network, is a Lansing-based
computerized service for law en-
forcement agencies. Each police
station in Michigan is equipped
with a teletype terminal connect-
ed to the service. When a patrol
car calls in the name of a sus-
pect, the computer will ;heck to
see if there are any outstanding
warrants for his arrest. If so,
the officer will make an arrest.
If not, the driver is thanked and
sent on his way.
A LEIN "check" can be run on
both names of people and regis-
trations of vehicles as a check
for stolen cars. LEIN is, in turn,
connected with a computer in
Washington which checks for out-
of-state warrants and stolen cars.
"We make a tremendous num-
ber of arrests because of that
computer," said LaVack.
After what seemed an inter-
minable time, the radio room at
the police headquarters called
back-the 10-22 was negative and
LaVack walked over to the sub-
ject's car, returned his :license,
apologized for keeping him wait-
ing and asked him to replace the
broken reflector. The driver said
he was waiting for parts and
should have them within a week
before driving off.
"It's a pity to keep him waiting
like that, he may have been on
his way somewhere. But I heard
a name the same as his in brief-
inglast weekmand there may
have been something on him.
Nice car though, '57 Mercedes,"
LaVack said.
"I hope that you've got an idea
of what police officers do, I wish
more of the students had a
chance to ride in a car and see
what it's like," LaVack said.
'"I think anyone can be 'a police
officer, it's a matter of trainig,
a policeman is just an ordinary
guy."
