by Joyce Tremel


By special request, I'm doing another question and answer day. Post your questions in the comments and I'll try my best to answer them.

OK, Joyce. What are the two vertical bars on the front of the police car in your photo?

Joyce said...

They're called "push bars." If there is a disabled vehicle on the road that needs pushed the officer can use the police car to do it instead of their somewhat-less-than-brute-strength.

Joyce, I have a question, although it's not really about police procedures. Why is the term "the actor" used to describe a criminal? That seems so odd to me. Any idea where that came from?

Joyce said...

Ramona, I don't know why they call them actors around here. Each region/city probably calls them something different. It's much nicer than calling them assholes.
