This is not a shoot/don't shoot scenario but a question about interacting with law enforcement in our neighborhood.
I was driving home with two of my kids at nearly 10 PM tonight when I turn onto one of our streets (we are in a corner house) and see two local PD cars sitting there, unmanned. There was some computer equipment inside the vehicles that was obviously powered on.
First of all, it is unusual to see police cars in our neighborhood, except for an occasional drive through for good measure. Secondly, while I do not know the people whose home was right by the cars, I do know them to be friendly people, not those that we might expect to have any problems (i.e. domestic violence, loud music, etc.).
I tried to call the local PD to inquire as to what was going on (possibly looking for a BG near the creek?) but could not get to the right department.
I am wondering how much the local PD is obligated to tell me if I want to know what is going on in my area. Anyone know the answer to this?
