Gary Andrews comes to Lynn Peavey with over 35 years’ experience managing lumberyards. During this time, Gary was also an elected official as a City Commissioner and Vice Mayor. He said “a large part of our duties was putting together budgets and keeping our Police Department updated and equipped with the latest gear and supplies.”

Gary was also was a regular ride-along with the police during the night shifts. He said, “I found it so interesting, and I would be better informed about what their needs were when they presented their budgets to the Commission.”

His experiences have given him an unique perspective of how difficult it is for departments to work within their budgets and keep their forces supplied with what they need to do their important work in the field.

Gary and his wife have 6 grandchildren and they enjoy watching them play sports. In his free time, Gary plays golf and hunts, mostly pheasants and doves. “My wife and I love to take walks and are really enjoying the Kansas City area since relocating here.”

Our very own Tracker came up with this little tidbit. Makes a lot of sense.

If you really, really, really need a label or evidence tape to stick permanently…you might want to use a burnishing tool to make sure your adhesive makes full contact with the surface.

But first, you want to make sure that the adhesive you are using is actually permanent. Permanence is an often overused term. Is it “good enough for average consumer use?” Or is it good enough to withstand law enforcement use? Most label companies don’t know, because they don’t make it. Cheaper adhesives are out there…but will they work? Buyer beware.
Back to burnishing. A burnishing tool can be as simple as an eraser on the end of a pencil. Something to help you get some pressure on especially the outside edges. Without it…if air or moisture gets under the sealed area, you may be inviting problems down the line. Other ideas may be a credit card, paper clip or the plastic tip on the cap of a Sharpie marker.

A pain in the back side? Maybe. But are you really, really, really concerned? Will it work on every surface all of the time? Doesn’t hurt right?
