Props to the Cops – Vol. 14

“Dear PoP,

This happened right outside the office I work in, at the former WB building in the 2100 block of Wisconsin Avenue, NW. Traffic was getting by for a while, then they closed Wisconsin off. The emergency responders seemed to be using a lot of different tactics to convince the person to surrender. Medical units were up close, then retreated, fire trucks lined Wisconsin for a time, then seem to have moved out of view of the person. Several negotiators, including a female at one point and a male at another point, were working with the person. Finally, two SWAT officers scurried along the ground perimeter of the building, under the person, and he surrendered. Couldn’t hear anything, but it was fascinating to see the negotiation happening. It is good to know that the negotiators succeeded in talking the person away from the ledge without rushing him. There were several opportunities.”
