    Working midnights, I don't get those. What I DO get are the abuse calls that come in that night when mommy/daddy finds out that the other has spanked their precious little angel.

    Unfortunately, it's also the night with the highest percentage of the parental sexual assault calls because one parent usually finds the evidence at the kids bath time.
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    My shift runs from 6p to 4a, so I've seen both in the same shift.

    Now, not to be outdone are the well being checks on the kids on those nights because the parent who dropped the child off says that the other parent seemed agitated and they fear for their child's safety. What honks me off is that those concerns don't arise until sometime between the hours of 11p and 2:30a when the child and parent are sleeping. Guess who gets to be the nice guy and beat on a door, waking them up?

    Not to derail the topic at hand, this gives me an idea for another thread.

    Yup. Civil matter it is. Take what basics you need, and come back with a court order for the TV. ...or grow up.

    Our common practice on civil standbys is just presonal items, no big items. We usually only have one officer on duty so we can not be at the residence for an hour or two waiting for them to move out. On all of the civil standby calls there are always two officer's dispatched but sometimes it takes the county awhile to get here so we keep it simple unless they have made other arangements.

    Pretty much how we handle it as well.

    I tell them up front that when it comes to property/custody/etc... Unless they have a court order saying our agency will, that we will not. Like was said above, we're there to keep the peace and offer whatever mediation we can but we are simy not granted authority under Ohio law to interfere with civil issues.
