Where Crime Writers Talk About Life, Work, and Murder
OK, Joyce. What are the two vertical bars on the front of the police car in your photo?
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?
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.
