Safety is of utmost importance to us. That’s why we have, the gear and the training that we do. Mostly to protect the citizens in the neighborhood.” Sigle acted as the Tactical Commander for Wednesday’s warrant execution. 

Sigel added, “It’s important to know that anything related to guns or narcotics is a high priority for us. We take an aggressive approach. Typically, guns and drugs are associated with violent crime in our area and so we take a lot of a lot of pride and do a lot of, proactive work toward combating those.”
