    I can only give whats worked for me as there are times when I dont get a lunch break either.

    Avoid soda or juice type products. If they are spilled, they are hard to clean and become sticky.

    Avoid chocolate or other coated type items (candy bars, protien bars) as they can get sticky and make you leave smudge marks on paper or uniform.

    Try for smallish type items that you can eat quickly: small bags of nuts, packages of crackers or dried fruit.

    I have a small bottle of hand sanitizer in my cruiser as well as a package of baby wipes (unscented). If I have time to eat, I will try to either pack something that doesnt ness. need refrigeration or heating and try to make it healthy.

    All in all though, its like Term said...most of our meals are either fast food or grab and eat things (like a hot pocket from a convience store).

Stay away from carbonated drinks.
    Agree..I started bringing a bag lunch for the first few months that i hit the street, but i rarely bring one now. I either eat a big meal prior to work, or eat on the job. However, if you are to bring a lunch, do exactly as conalabu stated: bring things you can throw back in a baggie and that are not messy. I personally like bringing granola bars. As far as drinks, I drink as much water (and hate to admit, but coffee too) as possible. When I get tired of water, I have those flavor additives so it has a bit of taste at least.

    Don't be fooled by FSCF, he is on lunch all shift long. Us real cops rarely get to eat, and when we do it's fast food.

    Well, the FEDS are always on lunch. I think they plan to plan for lunch.

    As opposed to you guys whom are just out to lunch.

    We are the thin blue line

    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    Forget about what to eat. I'm just trying to figure out how I'm supposed to take a piss while in uniform. I'm not exactly a dude over here!

    I think it's already been stated in another thread, but; I can't imagine having to take my belt off every time i have to pee.

    I'm with ya sista! On one of the ride-alongs I went on I swear I held it for the entire 12 hour shift. You either opt not to drink anything at all (and dehydrate yourself) or have to pee every hour. I've seriously considered wearing a diaper.
    Some people dream of success, while other people live to crush those dreams.

    We recently switched to 10-hour days around here... my shift now overlaps with our graveyard detail by a few hours. Lately I've been getting a true lunch break!!

    Prior to this switch, bagged lunches were the way to go. Healthier than fast food, and cheaper. Works well when you get stuck on a call that drags on for hours. Even now, I carry at least some food with me that I don't need to heat... that way I'm never hungry
