Rural Badge Problems #3

If you've ever transported a violator to post bond via canoe, you might be a rural badge.

If you prepare a search warrant, request that city and state assist, and that gets you all of two extra units, you might be a rural badge.

If you ask dispatch for admin response, and chief responds he needs to clean up first because he's been in the garage butchering a deer, you might be a rural badge.

If you arrest an out-of-towner and the drive to jail takes so long that "Are we there yet?" turns into, "Where are you taking me??" as his eyes get wider in your rear view, you might be a rural badge.


If you've forded a creek with a 4WD to serve a paper, then stopped on the way back to eat lunch on a sand bar right in the middle, you might be a rural badge.

If you've been on a pursuit at night, on dirt roads, backed up a game warden and a Forest Service officer, you might be a rural badge.
Bonus if there was rain.

If you've been called because an elk fell through an egress well, you might be a rural badge.

If getting to a call involves a ferry, or a road that takes you into Canada before circling back to your patrol area, you might be a rural badge.

If transport to jail first requires transport by ATV for ten miles just to get to your truck, you might be a rural badge.

If a Code Brown involves keeping your duty belt out of the snow, and your south end off random game cameras, you might be a rural badge.
