Does PV have a cruiser marked PVPD?Does anyone here actually monitor this system and if so does your info correspond to RR data?
What you are saying is what I've wondered about for years now. I've never heard a peep, ever. And I have tried monitoring in the area, on Friday / Saturday evenings when there should be SOME type of traffic. I have NEVER seen a PV patrol car. I have been an avid news watcher for years, and don't recall a single story EVER involving the PVPD. Could they be just a myth, an agency on paper only? Very good question.Does PV have a cruiser marked PVPD?
Does PV have a 2nd cruiser marked PVPD (for car to car)?
Does PV have an actual Police Station (structure)?
Does said Police Station (if exists) have a 24/7 switchboard/dispatch radio switchboard?
I have never heard a peep radio wise and have always assumed that the City/Town of PV was a few very expensive homes on a hill, and was basically only a technical political subdivision designed to control local Codes.
I agree that they are not generally very exciting. Let's face it, the crime rate in PV is pretty low. The cops there are more security guards than anything I would suspect, preventing burglaries from homes with lots of goodies in them.I know this is an older thread, but I didn't see it when it was active. I monitor PV PD all the time. I work near there and live not too far away and I know people who live there so I have a bit of an interest.
Based on personal listening experience (your mileage may vary here), about once or twice a month they get something really interesting. the rest of the time it's vacation watches, silent alarms and people who don't look like they belong in the area, which basically means that unless you drive a fancy car, some resident is going to call 9-1-1 and report you as a suspicious person!
Probably THE MOST interesting call I've ever heard actually made it to a news clip. Someone went to go outside their house and saw an animal in their yard. They call 9-1-1 and report a BABY LION in their front yard. Then they said it could be a BABY TIGER, but either way they're pretty sure it wasn't a cat native to the area. So, the police show up, guns drawn, go looking for a 'big cat' and what they find is a bobcat taking a nap under a tree near a leaking hose. Pretty harmless. When it was reported on the news the reporter said the police were looking for a Mountain Lion, but mountain lion was never mentioned in any of the transmissions so I don't know where they got that from. Either way, a Bobcat looks nothing like a baby lion or tiger. hahaha.
I'm sure they don't see themselves as more of a security guard than a police officer, but unfortunately, that's pretty accurate.I agree that they are not generally very exciting. Let's face it, the crime rate in PV is pretty low. The cops there are more security guards than anything I would suspect, preventing burglaries from homes with lots of goodies in them.
