If your idea of law enforcement work comes from television shows and Hollywood, chances are that you don’t appreciate the mundanity, monotony, paper-pushing, and endless-waiting-around-for-something-or-someone that describes most of your average police officer’s workday. In this video we take a brief step back from the celebrity arrests, pursuits, tasings, and Metro State videos to cover a more relatable — and far more common — law enforcement investigation: a hit and run.
This footage of police mundanity comes your way out of Lewiston, Idaho, as a Lewiston police officer attempts to investigate an alleged hit and run, only to find himself up against an uncooperative family.
