    You mean those pieces of paper you hand out to people for violations?

    I call them FPNs (Fixed Penalty Notice) for traffic or PNDs (Penalty Notice for Disorder) for anything else we can use them for.

    I call them Citations.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    We also call them tags where I am. I think that is pretty common througout Minnesota. I used to work in North Dakota, too, and I can't remember what we called them out there.

    Summons, Ticket, or Citation. VERY rarely some will refer to them as a GS&C (General Summons and Complaint)
    "If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

    The chief and the other officer here call them tickets, I call them citations. However after a clearing a vehicle stop. Myself and 2 of the deputys tell the dispather that we just singed up another one if we cite.
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    When I was getting them, I called them "tickets." Now that I'm giving them, I call them "citations." Those I give them to call them "Butt-wipe" among other things.

    We call the summons here but refer to writing them as "Im gonna go out and stroke a few"

    Cool

    Just among the guys (and gals), we "hang paper" on every contact. No verbal warnings allowed, gotta write them a citation, write a written warning, or make an arrest. If we determine there was no crime committed, we have to fill out a "3x5" for records...a 3" by 5" piece of paper with all the details of the contact. Officially, we tell the dispatcher on the radio we either "cited them for......" or "warned them for...." or "no action".......................

    I call them C-Notes.
    "We're surrounded. That simplifies the problem."
    Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, USMC

    If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

    I rode with an officer once from a PD who required all of the following reports - It was the most boring ride-along in my life, sitting in parking lots waiting for her to do all of her reports:

    1) A hand-written report
    2) A perfectly-drawn diagram to approximate scale, especially if any vehicle was involved (even parking lot scrapes) - She had to use drafting templates. During my ride-along we had 3 hit & runs in parking lots, and she took a total of nearly 2 hours to do diagrams. These were very minor fender-benders and paint scrapes, with no injuries, no suspects
    3) A typed report on her MDT (the handwritten one was still required).
    4) A voice-recorded report on her tape recorder - She said it will be re-typed by a stenographer. I asked her why they couldn't use the one she typed into her MDT, and she said it was because the systems didn't talk to each other
