I am not a cop
Despite what many people may believe, I am in no way, nor have I ever been a member of law enforcement. I have no badge. I drive an old Sheriff’s car that was once used in Texas. I bought the car from an auto broker here in Madison. I pay for my own gas. I don’t get any compensation from the Sheriff’s Office or the Madison Police Dept. The lights on the grill of my car and in the back window are white, not blue. I used to use them when I was doing arrest videos. I would turn them on, usually on the interstate, in hopes of my car not being hit by passing traffic. I purchased the radio(HAM) and scanner (NASCAR) with my own money.
I hope this helps dispel any myths otherwise. If you doubt my words, feel free to contact the Sheriff or the Chief of Police to verify this.
