Sunnyvale leads the way in cross-training of public safety officers
Joyce Park stashed this in Crime
One consequence of the cross-training that I've noticed in Sunnyvale is that the cops get love from the community when they are serving as firefighters -- so they don't get so hard and defensive. It's good for everyone!
firefighters do get the love. no doubt about it!
Why are fire fighting and crime fighting different organizations?
Historical accident? Or is there a good reason?
