    The only exception we had was the NJ State Police.

    When they started arresting fire officers for ignoring their "lawful orders" on the interstate, I started letting them own their own mistakes.

    Cancel us? Sure.... see you later.

    Order us to not have a blocking engine? Then we all leave. Good luck, trooper.

    We don't have local PD in my town, we are covered by the Sheriffs Department. They used to like to disregard us on pretty much any MVA, even if medical treatment or extrication was needed. They changed around some personnel and now we have a great working relationship with them. If they say we're not needed for something, then we really aren't.

    Thumbs up Well........

    Couple of things........ First, we have an outstanding relationship with our LEOs (90% County PD) to the point that they even bring us donuts...... They are able to use the head, get a cup of coffee, use a desk/telephone, etc, etc........ Off duty guys have washed their car and so forth...... We get along very well all the time. Several of our Members are LEOs, and if something gets a bit sticky, we sit down and fix it without getting anyone's attention at the main office...... And, on Runs, the chances of the PD getting there ahead of us is pretty slim, unless they are the ones who called in the first place. They don't normally run on our calls anyway, they have more than enough to do without following us around.......
