Being a community police officer I am "non-essential personnel". I start vacation tomorrow and go back to work Jan 3rd. I still have to attend SWAT training and will take any overtime shifts which come my way

You got to get into a specialist slot. I have not worked a holiday (unless it was for OT) in many years. Strictly monday -friday with weekends and holidays off.

We have Dec 24th and 25th off, and we have to work Dec 31st and Jan 1. To add insult to injury I am working 12 hour nights (6:00 PM to 6:00 AM). But at least it's inside work. Being a construction electrician I haven't worked inside for the last year and a half.

We rotate Thanksgiving and Christman off.

I had a 4 day weekend over Thanksgiving.

I'm off Christmas eve and work Christmas at 1900, so I won't miss much.

I work New Year's eve and New Years at 1600, so I'll miss the party.

I'm working first shift all the way through from friday till tuesday. I don't mind though, I can see family and friends after 1400 each day

I took off Christmas Eve, but work midnights on Christmas day. No biggie there.

I have to work midnights on New years eve though.

This is the first time in 16 years I haven't had to work T-Day or Xmas, and I'm on Kelly (FLSA day off) on New Years. We were able to go to STL to visit the inlaws actually on the holiday... wow.

It made the wife happy.
