RE: [MPD-5D] police cars idling
- I'm assuming this is an officer working on a school crossing. I'll have the Sergeant's bring it up at roll call.

Subject: [MPD-5D] police cars idling
I was hoping someone could explain why police cars are usually kept
idling, instead of properly parked, when officers are outside the car.
Usually, the officer assigned to esorting children to Noyes Elementary
are outside the car, but their cars are still on. Given the cost of
fuel and the amount of carbon monoxide released, it seems turning off
the cars would be a big help to DC residents all around (not to mention
the children breathing in all that exhaust!).
Thanks for your insight,
