DEAR CHIEF LETTER


1. DEAR CHIEF LETTER
72 up, 1 down  
Eventually every cop will get to write at least one "Dear Chief" letter explaining the events leading up to and the results of what usually amounts to a poor judgment call on the part of the officer. Following is an example of a Dear Chief letter I found online. Dear Chief, I recently purchased a Smith and Wesson Model 642 .38 caliber airweight subcompact revolver as a backup weapon. Last night before roll call I accidently shot a hole in the squad room’s avocado-colored Kenmore 20.9 cu. Ft. refrigerator while showing my weapon to a few officers. The ice maker sustained a kill shot to its motor, rendering it DRT. The energy star rating was a 3.5 and even though I placed a band aide over the .38 caliber perforation, it’s probably a lot less now. I went online and tried to order new parts but apparently they stopped making this model in 1973. In the meantime, I put a 60 quart ice chest with wheels and telescoping handle next to the fridge with four bags of ice in it.
