RIP Chief Dixon! In no way am I condemning the Chief and his actions, but merely stating my views and personnel policy. I'm on a small department with only one officer on the road per shift. My nearest backup is at least 5 minutes away unless a county unit is near me. If another officer is willing and able to start me way, I never disregard them. In today's world, you never know what people are going to do and there is no such thing as a routine call/stop. Don't know if backup could have prevented this tragic death, but it is an absolute surety that backup can't help you if you call them off! Stay safe brothers and sisters and go home safe!
