Ideally, maintain a gap between you the the vehicle in front, where you have time to react to any situation that may arise. 61-8-329. Following too closely. (1) The driver of a motor vehicle may not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of the vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the roadway.

Our warmest condolences to the Anaconda Community; especially to our brothers and sisters at the Anaconda Police Department.

Answer: False, The U.S. Constitution does not require the reading of the Miranda Advisory by a police officer. The advisory is the result of a 1966 court case (Miranda v. Arizona) that has changed the practice of police ever since. The U.S. Constitution specifically mandates that a police officer read a suspect the Miranda Warning following an arrest. True or False?

Update: Does not appear anyone involved was seriously injured. Not a great way to start the day...2 vehicle collision at the intersection of Wyoming and Catlin. The investigation is underway.

Answer: #4 when someone has not paid their credit card balance. This is typically a civil rather than a criminal issue and is between the bank and the customer. Which of these calls for service would police probably not respond too? 1)When someone calls the police about a barking dog that keeps them awake. 2)When someone complains about a hole in the street. 3)When someone complains that the neighbor's radio is too loud. 4)When a credit card company calls to complain that someone has not paid their monthly balance.

Please do your part to help change these statistics. Drive responsibly, drive safely, be considerate of other drivers, SLOW DOWN!

"If you see something, say something!"

Thank you for your kind words, sir. We're glad that everyone was all right!

Update 12:00 Noon: According to the Missoula County Office of Emergency Management, this situation is resolving, and Raser Dr. has been re-opened.

Rest in Peace, we'll take it from here...

During the week of September 21, 2017 The International Law Enforcement Torch Run Conference was held in Nashville, TN. Our own Ofc. Truman Tolson was in attendance, and was nominated for the John Carion "Unsung Hero" Award. Ofc. Tolson was one of 17 nominees. Only 3 were selected to receive the award, and though Ofc. Tolson was not selected, what an honor to be included in such an elite group! Congratulations Ofc. Tolson, and thank you for representing Missoula PD! *"The John Carion Award was created to recognize outstanding individuals who have contributed to the success of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® on a local, state or community level. The John Carion “Unsung Hero” should be someone who contributes to the Torch Run and Special Olympics in spirit, dedication and enthusiasm in an effective and unheralded fashion. The award was also created to honor the memory of Sergeant John Carion, Sterling Heights (MI) Police Department and his many contributions to the Law Enforcement Torch Run and Special Olympics. The award is presented by the LETR Regional Coordinators from around the world and intended to recognize an unsung Torch Run volunteer on behalf of John Carion, who was himself an unsung Torch Run hero." *http://letr.org/resources/2017-Awards-Files/Carion-Nomination-Instructions.pdf
