Everyone knows a police officer's work can be very dangerous. Personal disturbances, whether they are domestic or other volatile situations, can get out of control very quickly. Lieutenant Darren McMaster with the Deschutes County Sheriff's Department says they are trained to try and diffuse the situations. “You know there's a lot of emotion involved particularly with family members or sometimes neighborhood problem. To the outside, it may seem like a small thing. But these things tend to get very volatile because of the motion involved in the situation.” Police say handling these disturbances make up a big part of their job.  Monday night, sheriff’s deputies were involved in a standoff in La Pine, but luckily no officers were injured.
