  2. When the sheriff's patrol officers are on their rounds in our neighborhood and they pass, i wave and they wave back. Out on the roads, no.

    1. Supposedly they could mistake it for some kind of distress signal.

  6. This town is so small that they are usually a neighbor or are running for office and want your wave.

  9. No, I do not wave at police officers. I try to be considerate, but I don't attempt to be friendly with them. When I've seen them at work, mostly as security for public events, they seem like a bunch of jerks anyway.

  10. Only if they are directing traffic because the lights are out, then it's mostly just a thank you wave and smile.

  11. Only if I know them...up here on the mountain our local cops are a friendly lot...if you behave yourself, of course!

  13. Before we got speed humps on our street, a motorcycle cop would wait on our property for speeders. Our German Shepherd loved him and he loved her. We would often give him water bottles. This was a special case, though, because if I don't know the police officer, I don't pay them any special attention.

    One day something had attracted a minor incident down the road. Minutes later, a person in black, on a motorcycle, bristling with black accouterments drove up onto my drive way. Frankly, I was scared, but for no logical reason that I could think of because I hadn't done anything. Turns out it was my ex-brother in law just wanted to say 'hi'. He had just joined the motorcycle unit.
