When I was working, I nearly always had a camera with me. I did get a few decent shots because of it, but didn't always have time to stop and get a shot that I saw 'cause I was on the way to a scene. I also ended up using it for work on occasion if it wasn't a serious enough case for the official photo crew to be called out. Once though, I was taking the driving class and got to run through the course in my personal car and realized as I was doing the slalom that the thumps I kept hearing were my then brand-new tripod in the trunk flopping back and forth.
