    You are out on your regular patrol route. Suddenly a vehicle collides with your patrol car and you realize you've been in what appears to be an accident. You can see the vehicle that hit you from your drivers seat and there is considerable damage to both vehicles. The vehicle that hit you is obviously inoperable and the occupants appear to still be inside. The interior components of your vehicle seem to be intact and working, except for your mobile data computer. You notice no immediate injury to yourself.Select the answer below that best represents the order of protocols to follow.
    • A. 

      I should immediately contact dispatch and request code 3 for additional patrol units and EMS regarding a traffic collision. I should engage my lights to warn other motorists. I should then survey the scene and if there is a potential threat for fire notify dispatch immediately. I then make my way over to the vehicle that collided with mine. I then check on the status of the occupants of the vehicle, usually starting with the driver. I then notify dispatch of the patients status so it can be relayed to EMS who are en-route. I do what I can to stabilize the patients until EMS arrives. Once EMS has arrived on scene I attempt to setup a perimeter and allow other officers who arrive to begin an investigation.

    • B. 

      My first priority is the safety of the occupants in the vehicle who hit me. I should rush to their aid and help them to the best of my abilities. Once I feel I have stabilized them as best as I can I then contact EMS and other patrol units for backup. I check to see if there is threat of fire on scene and if so, contact dispatch again to update them on the situation. Now that the occupants of the other vehicle are relatively stable I head back to my patrol vehicle to engage my lights to warn other motorists. Once EMS has arrived I reposition my patrol car to block traffic. Afterward I let the other officers begin an investigation.

    You are in your patrol vehicle parked in a lot. You can see across the street from where you are. You think you are witnessing a burglary in progress at a local pawn shop but you can't be 100 percent certain. You saw three suspicious looking men dressed in even more suspicious clothing barge into the shop. Prior to this you noticed these same individuals parked in the lot outside of the business with the vehicle running for about ten minutes. You have just recently notified dispatch of the situation and two other units are responding code 1. It is now about a minute after the suspicious individuals walked into the pawn shop. Suddenly you hear the sound of gun fire emanating from inside the building.You should...
    • A. 

      Rush inside and eliminate all the threats. Then attend to any victims of the gun fire. Make sure to notify your supervisor of what happened.

    • B. 

      Yell, "Shots FIRED!" into your radio and initiate suppression fire on the suspects inside of the pawn shop until backup arrives. Once backup has arrived have at least one officer keep up the suppression fire until more units head into the pawn shop to eliminate the suspects.

    • C. 

      Quickly notify dispatch of shots fired and re-prioritize the call as a code 3 with a full zone response as well as placing EMS on standby. Inform dispatch of the make/model of the suspect vehicle, include as much information about the suspects themselves and the current situation as possible. Make sure you have adequate tactical gear to handle the current situation. Make sure responding units and yourself set up the best possible perimeter. Once some backup has arrived attempt to engage the suspects inside.

    • D. 

      Notify dispatch the situation is now code 3 and that EMS should be placed on standby. Relay as much information about the suspects as you can including the make/model of the vehicle you saw them driving. Call in ASU immediately for the code 3 situation so that you have eyes in the sky. Attempt to distract the suspects inside by whatever means available until backup arrives. Work together to engage the suspects and take out the threat.
