As a police officer you will be asked to multi-task on a regular basis. Every call for service is different and every call for service may involve you having to handle several issues at once.
Not only will you be asked to multi-task, you will also have to constantly be aware of what is happening around you for your own safety, and the safety of the citizens that you are there to protect.
For instance. Take a look at this K-9. Not only did he capture the crook at the scene, he noticed that the yard needed a trim. Multi-task, it's very important in a job like this.
