I've heard a bunch of stories about people who are brewing and have the police show up. It seemed unlikely to happen here nowadays, since a lot of people brew and it has to be a familiar sight. When I saw the officer drive by I didn't pay much attention, but I knew he'd be back because there's no other easy way out of the neighborhood. I was kind of surprised when he stopped at the end of my driveway and got out.
That is why my dog of choice is a German Shepard. Even the K-9 officer doesn't get out of his car, until he asks it is OK to get out of the car. My dog would only lick you but that isn't the point.
OK now back to OP's post.
Cool to find homebrewers, no matter their profession.
