1525 I observed two RACE cars speeding in Rio Vista, very fast. One car was red and one was yellow both had race numbers on the doors #22 and #23. Needless to say, I could not catch up with them. If anyone knows who they are please let me know so I can speak with them.

1640 I assisted a helplessly lost motorist from Argentina seeking the Bahia-Mar Hotel. He had driven up and down every Isle multiple times and circled Ponce De Leon repetitively but could not figure out why he seemed to end up in the same place over and over again. Assistance was rendered and our happy visitor was on his way again.
1715 Received call on the detail phone from a member resident of a very intoxicated W/F at the Quick Stop Store located at 700 S. Federal Hwy. Following the trail of empty beer cans, I arrived to find her inside the store arguing with the store clerk.
This was another exceptional demonstration of “poor judgment” and quite possibly the only remaining area of life she excels at to date not with standing becoming drunk and obnoxious which is clearly second nature to her.
This officer had given her a trespass warning from this location on the previous evening but her flawed process of thought apparently had gotten the best of her once again. She decided to return to the store less than 24 hours after my warning. Feeling as though I had not been taken seriously, I then decided to take her to jail.
1845 I returned to Rio Vista having concluded the exciting and intellectually stimulating process of booking my overly intoxicated and vastly under appreciative prisoner.
The vulgarity used & profane names I was called by my prisoner, have lowered my self-esteem to a point that I may need psychological counseling to heal my wounded mind. Or I may just go home and not loose any sleep over it. The latter sounds very doable.
1915 Checked all of the parks.
2000 Checked the Isles, Yacht Club and Cordova Road areas.
2015 Staged Q35 car at N. Rio Vista Blvd and SE 9 Ave.
Wednesday, April 02, 2014
1055 Observed man in a suit outside of residence apparently going over something regarding the resident’s exterior of the home. Initially concerned that this may be a gypsy scam, I stopped out with the subject. Subject, who presented a Realtor card, claimed to be looking to set homeowners with a city program to assist with fixing up homes. When I inquired if he was working with the City, he stated that he was not. I then informed him that he needed a permit for door to door solicitations. He left without incident.

driver was warned and admonished and I emphasized the significant safety issue

for rolling right on through. She was warned & admonished.
1758 Traffic stop in the 1200 blk of SE 8 St. While a homeowner was complaining to me
about cars speeding down the block as children are playing, sure enough a vehicle
came up behind me at an accelerated speed. She told me “this guy is going to rear
end you” just prior to his swerving around me. Upon the stop the driver immediately
exited his vehicle and stated he was late to vote at the LYC and had to go. Apparently
driver needed to understand that his actions were dangerous
and I took the opportunity to explain this to him. I don’t think I made any headway.
