Just like Sgt. Joe Friday, I was 'printed' today. This, of course, is the prelude to world of substitute teaching I hope to be trying soon. The fun part of this was going to the Derby Police Facility, for whatever reason, they are no longer Police Stations - has the PD gone PC? A very nice young officer took me to the print area, and it is at the same place as the holding cells. I admired the engineering of these bars and doors. And have decided that these cells look better from the outside in, than from the other way. Nice metalworking at least.
At any rate, I have a suitable mug shot that fits well with my prints taken at the lockup, and it really looks like a mug shot of me as an angry 18-year old. Some have seen this, but it is still oh-so-appropriate. If I didn't have the sneer of a know-it-all perp, nobody did. I wonder what the background check will dig up on me? This is probably more of a need to know thing, that perhaps I'd rather not know :>)
As for just the facts, I still think that there is nobody better at that than Jack Webb, aka Sgt. Friday. Dan Ackroyd did a nice tribute in the 1980's Dragnet movie, but Badge 714 still delivered those lines best.
