  1. “Crusty Copy” is our nickname for one of the east precinct officers we hear on the radio who is delightfully gruff, frequently sarcastic, and chock full of institutional history for the local criminals in our area. He’d be the perfect model if you needed to write a 70’s TV drama about a crusty but benign, hard-nosed cop that’s tough to get along with but always gets the job done.

    His true identity remains a mystery…
