    Tom: sometimes you get m???ds, hostility, you take it home
    Ann: this helps to be on the job and learn
    The Lockport police chief is conduct ??? this experiment on the theory that if his men are happy at home...they'll be better police officers on-the-street.

    Only half of the Lockport policemen wanted their wives to ride along with them.

    Others said their wives had no business in a patrol car. Some said they had no problems at home.

    They think the ride-along experiment has helped.
