Safety and Privacy Tips For Off Duty Police

This message is for everybody.  For police officers that are in the current struggle of our nation you probably already know these things but you can use this as a check list.  For all others who may have someone trying to hunt you every day these techniques can benefit you as well.  Police officers have to constantly look over their shoulder for the obvious reason that they may run into a former client, fresh out of prison and ready for revenge, but the political climate today has put that worry in second place.  Now officers have to worry about entitled drug addicts on the George Soros payroll coming out of nowhere.  This is also the case if you happen to support any cause that these people find offensive, even if you are John Q Citizen.  Here is a simple list of tips that police officers use for off duty safety and privacy when they are off duty.invisible police man

  1. Have a plan for your family if you run into trouble: It is important to know that you may remember a bad acquaintance from your past when you run into them at the mall.  Your wife will have no idea who this person is. It is important for you to make a clear and concise plan with your family that if you tell them to “go home”, they do so without question or hesitation.  Talking about this and reminding your spouse before going out every time is important.
  2. Get a burner car: In the past I have written extensively about the burner phone (and you should have one) but if you feel you are being hunted you need a burner car. This is just a basic piece of junk that you pay $1000-$1500 for and you just use to drive to work.  Just throw some liability insurance on this one and know that you can do anything you want with this one.  You want some examples?  Ram your way out of illegal roadblocks, Run over anyone shooting at you, practice your stunt driving in vacant parking lots, and best of all when the angry rioters show up and set cars on fire you won’t mind.  If you get the right kind of burner car, they may even pass over you thinking you are one of them, or are so poor they feel sorry for you!
  3. Put your nice car in somebody else’s name: I always say I’m not afraid of the government, but those rogue employees are a different story.  Whether you are a police officer or not, you know just about anybody can check the tags on your car.  Move the ownership of your car to a friend or get an LLC for the vehicle.
  4. Use a different address: This is a big issue for police because they are always expected to live where they say they live. Officer or not, you need to avoid living where you say you live.  This is not just about you; this is about your family’s safety.  Move your home into the name of a friend or relative, or an LLC. If you have to but don’t live in a place where someone can easily find out.
  5. Shave down your friend list: People talk and unfortunately a friend of a friend stopping by your house or your social media page could get some ideas if he gets upset for no reason. Only deal with close friends.  All others are just going to have to stay away.  This means no big parties at your house.  In fact, if you follow rule #4 above you shouldn’t have any visitors.
  6. Always Pack Heat: There is a lot of shaming in the media and there are a lot of jabs being thrown by politicians right now regarding guns.  Don’t fall for it.  Take it from a guy who has been in shoot outs with and without guns.  Being without a gun is a helpless feeling.  Take it everywhere.
  7. Look the Part of John Q Citizen: On your days off grow your facial hair and try to look as normal as possible. Don’t wear police stuff.  The only police item you should have on your person is a gun (or 2).
  8. Get your Food to Go: Get everything to go.  Sometimes you have to go out and do things with your family but that should be kept to a minimum.  Unfortunately, with the political climate you will probably want to only go to restaurants in a different town from the one you work in.
  9. Stop signs are optional at this point: I would never tell anybody to willingly violate the law but you have to make a good judgement for yourself and your family here.  Is it worth making a complete stop at a stop sign or red light just to be shot at if you are in the wrong neighborhood?  Keep moving while you are in your car.  It will slow some bullets down but you have no way of defending yourself while you are trapped in your car seat.  On that note, you should always keep a safe distance from the car in front of you.  I consider a safe distance, the distance it takes me to get the car up to a speed to ram my way out of the situation.
  10. Secure your home like Fort Knox. I don’t think this needs explanation, but you need to do everything you can to make it unappealing and unhealthy for a burglar or homicidal maniac to get inside your house.  You should never have to shoot anybody if it is well secured, but have the guns ready to go to.
