Why involve yourself in that respect off duty though, you will just end up getting hurt
Are you seriosly asking this?
My friend (who I stated was a female) has just phoned me and said that someone is breaking in downstairs with god knows what intention and you are saying why get involved because I might get hurt?
I would not think twice about running round to her house to try and help her, it is my duty as a police officer to prevent any crime that I can, and while I would try and be as safe as I could, I would have no problem taking a beating or worse if it ment that she escaped unhurt.
I would be ashamed of myself if I ever thought I would let that happen to a MOP let alone my own friend.
