Apparently some of you didn't get the memo I sent out last year, so I'm re-posting it below.
I mention this only because Sergeant Matthew Baldwin, a member of the Broward Sheriff's Office has been spotted using his patrol car as a pick-up truck. (According to Local 10, Baldwin has been "placed on desk duty and had his patrol car taken away, officials said. He works out of Pompano Beach.")
TO: All South Florida Law Enforcement Officers
FROM: The Random Pixels Common Sense Desk
SUBJECT: Proper use of patrol vehicles
Just a reminder that police vehicles are not to be used for transporting furniture, mattresses, farm animals, cats, dogs, parakeets, women you meet in a bar, alcoholic beverages - either to or from "choir practice" - and last, but not least, hookers and other non-law enforcement personnel.
Additionally, please be aware that this is 2012 and there are cameras everywhere.
