          5. Make sure that you have sufficient evidence for
             successful prosecution.

          6. Search and handcuff all prisoners.

          12. Refusal to sign a citation:

                  a. Advise the violator that his or her signature is not
                     an admission of guilt, only a promise to appear.

                     violator to jail.

                     Advise the violator as above. lf the violator still

                     hands in front or rear is left to the discretion of the

                     department recommends hands to the rear.

                                                                  Page 8

  IV OBTAINING ENTRY INTO PRIVATE PROPERTY

          1. Private property includes any private dwelling,
             building, or any privately-owned vehicle.

          2. PURSUIT
             If an officer is in hot pursuit and suspect enters
             private property to avoid apprehension, the officer may enter
             that property to effect the arrest. However, because of officer
             safety, it is not advisable to do so. Call for assistance and
             maintain surveillance.

                                                                  Page 12

          3. Other Situations

                  a. Requesting admission. An officer may present himself/
                     herself at a legitimate entrance to the private property
                     and ask for admittance. The officer must identify
                     himself and his purpose.

                  b. Admission refused. lf admission is refused the officer
                     can only gain entry by obtaining a search warrant.

  V FORCEFUL ENTRY INTO DWELLINGS

          1. In the case of a locked or fortified building, specific
             departmental tools may be required to gain entry. Available
             tools include:

                  a. Hand-held power ram. Sufficient for most non-reinforced
                     entrances.

                  b. Motorized converted military armored ram.
                     Used to violate heavily-reinforced steel entrances.

  VI COURTROOM PROCEDURE

          1. Be prompt

          2. Be prepared and have proper paperwork available

          3. Testify in a professional manner and cite only those facts
             surrounding the case

                                                                  Page 13

  GUIDE FOR NEW CADETS

          You're in a new uniform. You're excited. You're nervous.
          You're ready to take on the Sicilian crime world and the Latin
          American drug traffikers and come out unscathed.

          You're a cop.

          Before you start your first day on the job, there are
          some things you should know about the road you've chosen.
          Someone once said that being a cop is ninety-five percent
          boredom. Routine is the foundation of police work - routine that
          can include anything from sitting under a bridge with a radar
          gun in your hand for sixteen hours to making a midnight trip to
          the emergency room with half a kid in the back of your car. lt
          may not seem glamorous to rookies like you, but men who have
          been in the force know that "a cop's gotta do what a cop's gotta
          do".

          What's the other five percent of being a cop? Try
          plunging down the steepest roller-coaster you can imagine at
          about a hundred and fifty miles per hour. At night. Except,
          there's nobody at the controls down below. You'ye got the
          controls. There's a lot of screaming people on the ride behind
          you, and you're the one steering. Now, the brakes go....

          I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that
          ninety-five and five sound like pretty good percentages. You're
          thinking that you could manage being lucky five percent of the
          time. Trouble is, that's an average. On certain days, for
          certain cops, things can get MUCH worse.

          But, that's why you joined, isn't it? The force needs
          you. Lytton needs you. And you can steer real good.

          So what are you waiting for? Go out and DO IT.

  WARNING

          The next page is for "rookies" only. Experienced officers
          might want to avoid the first day briefing and strike out on
          their mission without undue assistance from headquarters.

                                                                  Page 16

             an open door on the left. Click the "EYE" on the door to find
             out what room it is. "WALK" to the door and go inside the room.

          7) In the briefing room, look at the other officers. Click
             the "EYE" icon on the officers.

          8) Talk to Officer Morales. Click the "TALK" icon on
             Morales.

          9) Take the clipboard from the podium. Click the "HAND"
             icon on the clipboard.

          10) After the briefing, leave the room and go back to the
              Sergeant's office. Morales left the briefing room before you.
              She is in the room when you enter.

                                                                  Page 17
