Reflections on different types of police officers
Some policemen were over keen and often found reasons for an arrest. Some were not keen at all and settled for a quiet life which produced few arrests but most were average taking situations at they came. If you could choose a companion in an incident, you would choose an average man. If you were involved with a keen one, he could inflame a situation and make things worse. If involved with a “non-doer” you finished up doing most of the work.
