Advice to Police Officers in St. George Found Lacking

St. George officers get polite reminder:

Police Chief Scott Uhrig has given his eight officers a reminder about courtesy — and some words of warning — after one of his sergeants got fired for berating a motorist on tape.

“They know to be polite and courteous,” the chief said, “and they’ve been advised, ‘Stay on your toes. We don’t know how many other Brett Darrows there are out there.'”

Not, “Don’t be bombastic, treat citizens of other municipalities passing through our tiny one-stop light, city hall is just another house in the subdivision municipality-of-convenience as though they’re the people you’re supposed to serve and protect.”

Just, “Don’t get caught when being bombastic and not treating citizens of other municipalities passing through our tiny one-stop light, city hall is just another house in the subdivision municipality-of-convenience as though they’re the people you’re supposed to serve and protect instead of the mainstay of our city budget and outlets for your own egos.”

Good work, Chief.
