Nomination For A Hero Badge

I don’t care how it is supposed to be pronounced. I know how it is going to be dispatched.

The AANTF (task force) office was located on Crested Butte. The San Antonio Police Department assigned MDT address for us was ANTS1,ANTS2 and Hill. The guys at information services had a sense of humor. Back to Crested Butte. Our alarm occasionally went off and required a patrol response.

Without fail, the North Patrol dispatcher would put out the call for an alarm on “Crusted Butt.” There never seemed to be any confusion on the part of responding officers. I can almost guarantee that no cop in the community specifies Inyo Butte as an intersection. It goes without saying that Butte becomes Butt.

It’s all about how you say it.
