Another reason why law enforcement officials must remain vigilant at all times because you never know what kind of situation you can come up upon.

Especially when you consider that the majority of police officers in Westchester and Rockland ride single and without partners. You need to be alert and think on the quick when your back up can be several minutes away. Good job as always TPD. Jeff Meyer Tuckahoe,NY

Well technically this was Bronxville PD but Tuckahoe and Eastchester officers are top notch as well. I always like it when I see an officer approach a vehicle from the passenger side, I think it puts the officer even further out of harms way in regard to traffic and also a change of pace.
