When I was a rookie if you were in shit they'd make you walk the post in the shitty'ist part of your division. The hook would come by and roll the window down about an inch in the freezing weather and tell you what time he was marking you down for a visit. You learned to hide in doorways and then you learned to work the neighbourhood. That's when they put you back in a scout car.
That's wild! We don't even have foot beats on my department unless you work Transit Services Bureau (…buses, trains, etc.).

Foot patrol, the CRU is a prime job now, especially in the entertainment district (bars and nightclubs) they also are the bike guys. And frankly in the downtown core the bikes are a great way to get around with the congestion and you don't get detailed to calls so they get to pick and choose. When I first came on the job if you were on the post they issued you with two dimes to use at a payphone to call the station and report in. No portable radios for the foot guys back then. Talk about being on your own, you learned to talk and walk sometimes. We had a small truncheon and a .38, issued with 6 semi-wad cutters. If you wanted to carry extra you bought a strip loader and extra ammo. I remember when I got my first speed loader, that was the shit my friend.

I remember making a pinch and walking the client back to the station or if it was a long way and I'd used up my dimes taking them on the bus.....the job has changed a lot.
