In Topic: Possible shots fired

09 August 2019 - 02:30 AM

I place my hand over my service weapon, my eyes darting around the scene. I feel the familiar rush of adrenaline and take a deep breath, steadying myself. I can tell just how rusty I am; it takes me a moment to figure out where to go. With the man inside the building and the other two deputies covering the front, I start around to the back on the off chance he decides to run out the back. I crouch a bit, keeping my shorter frame below the bottom of the windows as I move around back. 


I move quickly, the darkening sky helping to conceal my form as I move around the house. I pray he doesn't try to shoot anyone else and he's just a drunk; but at the same time a drunk who can't aim is just as dangerous with a loaded gun. I find myself a tree around back of the house, luckily with a clear enough sight line to the back door. I didn't see any other entrances, but that doesn't mean there aren't any on the other side of house, near Patterson. I keep my weapon pointed downwards as I listen to the deputies up front and watch for any fleeing forms.

We head out of the office on patrol, my arms swinging loosely and feeling strange being a trainee again. With how long I was gone though, I can't see how I would have expected anything else. I lean back in the seat after bucking up and we start out in our assigned area. 


Evelyn starts to catch me up on some of the mischief and interesting things that have been going around and all of the changes - it's clear to me I've missed a lot. She starts going on about this one call she was on and I hear our unit number go over the radio and a call come out. 


What a lovely start to the shift. I listen to the call information and keep my comments to myself - medicine is a superstitious field and it's hard not to get caught up in it. Those habits don't die easy, and this definitely doesn't bode for a smooth shift. I sigh and lean back, noting Evelyn's obvious skill with the vehicle.


'Is this your usual car?'

*I step into the parade room for this first shift back, fully expecting to be placed on probation and with another officer for 'training'. I have no doubt there will be a lot of new faces, and I fully expect to not see anyone familiar at all. I stand back, waiting for the officer in charge to give me my assignment, standing at ease.*

'DeVito, here.'

I walk into the locker room, pulling off an old and very worn out department tee before changing into my newly issued duty uniform. I longingly run my fingers over the place where my old insignia would have been, before fastening everything up and straightening my uniform.


A probie. Again.


It's a slight.. more than a slight blow to my ego to be a probationary deputy after training so many myself but I suppose I have to prove myself all over again - hopefully I can build half as much of a reputation as I had before.


I check over my uniform, making sure everything is crisp, just as I like it. If I was going to hold others to a high uniform standard I'd be damned if I didn't follow it myself to the letter.
