I have no problem relating "war stories" because I've been retired for 15 years, but I can understand that others might not want to share. In two years of sporadic patrols I stopped one potentially serious male-on-female mugging, simply by shining a high powered flashlight at the aggressor and setting off a screamer alarm. The guy grabbed the woman's handbag and started to run, then stopped and threw the bag back at her; I have no idea why. The only other incident worth mentioning was that I used exactly the same tactic to scare away a group of teenagers who were throwing empty beer bottles down from a public car-park into the street.
