The other day I called my woman on the cell. When she picked up I almost gave my call sign.

How about "Sir, do you have any weapons in your car?".
Link Posted: 5/31/2003 9:46:16 PM EDT
"Anyone else bringing their 101?" "Man, that was 50-50!" "Meet you at my 42 about 1900."

How about when you are told to call your X. I think everyone in my county thinks we are all divorced but on very friendly terms. Or "Honey, do you have my gun?" LEO's you know what I am talking about. "Does anyone need an extra handcuff key? If no one wants them I am throwing them out." "So there I was. Holding down this handcuffed naked woman while her boyfiend pulled off her shorts." (She was 5150 AKA=Nuts, had stipped and was trying to kill herself. The stupid boyfriend had put the shorts on wrong and was trying to fix them)

You code 4? 918 (most likely only the AZ crowd will know that one).

Even us non LEO's could always use a spare handcuff key. You never know who you may need to unlock in an emergency [;)] Not that I carry my Peerless model 700 around with me, but having a spare key on the keychain doesn't hurt

Better yet, what it does to the way we communicate with people. I remember the first time I was talking to one of my family members and thought "yeah yeah, get to the freakin' point."

LMAO. You have to remind yourself not to tell them "I don't care what happened two weeks ago. Why did you call, and why am I here now?"

Has anyone ever been on days off driving your POV and pulled up to a store/your house/buddies house/ect. and reached for the mike to put yourself out there? My wife saw me reaching for it finding nothing but air. She asked me what the hell I was doing and when I told her we both had a good laugh. I've been a Detective for over 4 years now. I go 10-8 in the morning and 10-10 at night. When ever we get a new guy in the unit it takes us 3 to 4 months to get him cut off from the radio. It is like cutting an umbilical cord for some guys.

I can remember the conversation one day when we pulled into the dry cleaners to pick up his uniforms and the Secretary from the office next door was pouring gasoline around the tree in the sidewalk. Whacha doin? Pouring gas on the roots. Why? My boss told me to. Why? It's a dirty tree and drips stuff on his car. Oh, is it his tree? I dunno, it's in front of his office. Why don't you stop, go in, get your boss and have him come out, and then call the Fire Department and report a gas spill. Boss comes out - Hey, quit butting in, this aint none of your business. This your tree or a city tree? Don't matter, now get out of here before I call the cops! Don't bother, they're here.

Ever been driving your POV and try to turn on your alley/takedown lights to get a better look at something? I have also been known to get in my (manual transmission) POV after a long shift in the cruiser and and grab the turn signal control arm in an attempt to shift the (non-existent) column gear shift into reverse.

I don't know but I always feel strange on a DUI stop when someone asks me to take the drunk down to the jail and blow him. (Get the intoxilizer test done) Just does not sound right.
Link Posted: 6/9/2003 6:51:16 PM EDT
Well here's a twist, how about what different departments say that get different reactions from other departments. For the must part, when a LEO says they have "one under," it usually means you have a perp under arrest. In Transit, "one under," or "man under" means you have someone on the tracks that was just hit by a train. Dispatchers go nuts when former patrol guys go over the radio saying they "have one under." [:D]

I always get odd looks from family/friends when I give the location of a place by the block number. You know, Them: "Hey Sukebe, where's Terry's Tiretown?" Me: "In the 600 Blk. of West Tuscarawas St." Them: (blank look) "Where's that?" Me: "West Tusc. and High, across from Timken High School"

True story... I was a USAF Security Policeman at Seymour Johnson AFB in 1984. We had just gotten an FNG on flight, and he was helping out the desk sergeant (a female), who was also the flight's breathalyzer operator. I was on patrol when I heard the following converstation over the radio: FLIGHT CHIEF: "Control, this is Badge 8." FNG: "Go ahead, Badge 8." FLIGHT CHIEF: "Where is Sgt. xxxxxxxx?" FNG: "She's in the back blowing a suspect." <...complete silence...> FLIGHT CHIEF: "She's what?" We had to hide the FNG from her for a week until she promised not to shoot him. [:D]

When out and about I am always asking my wife/friends/family, "Hey, did you see that ____?" They are always, "No. WTF are you talking about???" "Watch this guy." "Why?" It amazes me how most people have no power of observation or no situational awareness at all. I am glad my head is on a swivel and my eyes are open. Certainly an effect of the job. I am always spotting shoplifters in stores (usually it is not hard). I went from interceding and making arrests to telling store personnel to usually watching and pointing shit out to the wifey. She gets a kick out of it. "I am on the Motherfucker." (Marcellus, Pulp Fiction, BTW) Oh, last week at a party my wife (a teacher) whispered in my ear, "Let's get 10-8." I was like "Hell yeah!" The wife is down! I had to laugh. We are a strange lot are we not?!
Link Posted: 6/11/2003 2:42:35 AM EDT
I agree with the differing terms comment. When I worked in TX, the only time you ever heard someone saying "officer needs assistance" was when somebody had their ass in a sling and needed back-up RFN. When I got up here, I heard all the time "officer needs assistance at...". They use that phrase for frickin' everything. After over 10 years of marriage my wife "gets it". We start laughing during a highly inappropriate moments. We've also had to stifle each other while friends are telling great tales of woe. She's getting as morbid as I am. My mom-in-law claims that I twisted her sweet little girl. Cool.

I use 101 and 918 at the clubs with my friends to talk about the girls, get odd looks constantly. Also, 918 is probably the most useful type code in Phoenix, we are nuts...any of you ever see the guy downtown with the crossgaurd stopsign, orange traffic vest covered with stop on red stickers, whistle, and helmet...three out of four of us in the car instantly called out 918... I am to tired to remember the really funny ones.

Several year back, I had a fellow ask me if I was a Public Servant. upon my affirmative reply he said" good then, go get me a f*****g glass of water"

So....did he go to the ER via EMS or private to get said glass of water removed from his ass? [}:D]

Round these parts (Chicago 'burbs) 918 = 10-96 (or just '96) aka EDP or Frickin' nutty. Things I've had to catch myself on... Using terms like "Affirmative" and "negative", as well as using phonetic numbers when talking on the cell phone on non-business matters. Asking people to "21" me when they're "10-8" Echoing [u]everything[/u] said on the phone. And yes, it does amaze me that citizens can;t see what we do. Kind of like Eddie Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop.
