In my 35 year career as a peace officer, I have never understood the mentality of having light bars configured this way. I know several agencies that do this but it makes no sense to me. Possibly the new commissioner feels the same way as I do.

after knowing a few retired criminals relate stories, having these beacons on is like having a cell phone buddy keeping the perp fully cognizant of the peace patrols approaching. advantage is key to gaining control of any situation. unmarked heavily equipped cruisers are even better.
