Ok so I get a call today, the info from the dispatcher is sparse (Male on phone requesting police, female in background crying, then the caller hung up, no answer on callback) Oh great an unknown! I hate unknowns, I like knowns, I like to have the in-fo….I like to be able to formulate a plan of action that 99 times out of 100 will go to shit the moment I get on scene. Unknowns are well….UNKNOWN!!!! Could be something Could be noothing We just don’t know??? So I roll up on scene and theres this kid sitting on the … Continue reading CRAZY,CRAZY YES WE DO, WE GOT CRAZY HOWBOUT YOU?
So,, we get a call for kids smoking dope in an alleyway last night (kind of a routine call, right?) It wold be if it were a concerned citizen somewhere remote in the city. Or at least anywhere else in the city. No this complaint came from one of the fire stations in town, (from the guys who, y’know are TRAINED to smell smoke and to react to it) The suspects in question picked an alleyway with one entrance/exit point, directly behind a fire station in the summertime with all it’s windows open and fans in the windows. If I … Continue reading So that’s why they call it dope
Ok, so I know I’ve been gone awhile, but to my surprise people actually missed me. I received this note awhile back. And I cant thank Jeanette enough for getting the Enforcer back up to fighting form. I seriously thought I was through blogging. Work had become tedious and so un-fun, my wife suffered a heart attack (brought on by diabetes) so if you are diabetic the Enforcer urges you to get yourself checked and get it under control. Because, being the helpless spouse of someone going through that is very un-fun. The EnforcerSpouse is back up to snuff and … Continue reading A Call to Arms
I got a new temporary assignment the last couple of nights. Plain clothes surveillance, it has been awesome!!! A breath of fresh air if you will, Patrol is great but it does get monotonous, after 10 years, going in, doing the same ole same ole. (Don’t get me wrong, you never stop learning at this job and most days you see something new) But the plain clothes gig is something fresh, new and exciting. I had a blast grubbing out (sweatshirts and jeans) and I have been told by more than one coworker that if they saw me walking down … Continue reading FRESH AIR
I got a call last night for a dog bite investigation. That was what was given to me over the police radio. Ok, I’ve done a few of these calls before. Off I go to the reported location. I get on scene with the ambulance and we find the victim, she and her friend were walking his pit bull and at some point the dog got agitated for some reason or another and whammo, the dog snaps and bites her twice. Once in the arm and once in the groin. They weren’t terribly vicious bites but there was discoloration and … Continue reading Bitten Where?????
It felt so good to be out of here for a while. I went back to work last night, full of piss and vinegar to get back into the swing of things. Refreshed and ready to go. It lasted for about two hours. After the first few hours it felt like my vacation was a distant memory. And so it goes, back to the grind. I did make my first arrest since being back. About 20 minutes into my shift, I was approaching a signal light and watched as my light went from red to green I then saw a … Continue reading AND LIKE THAT VACATIONS OVER
Ya ever have one of those days. I went into work tonight, and I’m tellin ya it was hot humid and sticky at the beginning of the shift. The patrol car I was assigned to was in the shop for repairs so I had to find another one. Detectives had me come up and compare notes on an initial investigation I had done a few nights ago (which is really cool) because I appreciate that (to me it seems) they are comfortable with my assessment of situations and ask me for my input. I inspected and got on the road … Continue reading TRASH CONTROL SPECIALIST AT YOUR SERVICE
