    Are cops' interactions with criminals and "the public" on holidays more pleasant than on regular days?

    Are cops' interactions with criminals and "the public" on holidays more pleasant than on regular days? Do cops and criminals wish each other "happy holidays" during the course of an arrest, for instance?

    I found that it all depended on the person I was dealing with. If someone gave me alot of shit, they got the same in return. If someone was polite, respectful and acted like they should, I was a little more generous with them and often gave a warning.

    I'm pretty much the same as I am all year, though if there's a domestic and kids are involved I tend to try and be a little "kinder, gentler" than normal.

    No difference here. I am usually the same regardless. I search for justice the same. Even if an arrestee goes out of the way to wish me a Merry Christmas just because of the time of year then I will do the same.

    I always treat people the way they treat me. Does not matter what time of year it is. I always strive to do what is right.
    The opinions of my posts are the sole responsibilty of my employer due to the fact that they have totally and completely warped my mind.

    Oh, if you have to take someone to jail today, as you are leaving the jail make sure you tell them that you will forward their new address to Santa.

    My clients liked that last year.

    I write warnings for most traffic stuff unless I'm "talked" out of it or unless you nearly kill someone/serious offenses. The calls are different. There are a lot of emotions involved during this time of year. On a domestic it is already an emotional atmosphere. The holidays make these calls worse. A lot of suicide calls and the like this time of year too. I look for DUIs with a vengence during this time of year too. Not that I don't year round, but death notifications during the holidays suck.

    Sure, they get warnings when I am off on christmas day and christmas eve. If I have to work, they go to jail. If I am miserable, others shall share in my misery as well.

    Art Behind Bars usually will get the inmates that are involved in that program to make Christmas decorations to hang in the dorms and units. Last year, the "powers that be" made them take all the decorations down because they said Merry Christmas and they were afraid of offending someone, the chaplin stepped in and was able to talk the admin. into letting them be put back up. Some inmates attempt to decorate their cells, but that is taking it a little too far, it is considered contraband because it is usually stuff made from different items. Before you ask Jenna, contraband in this case is the use of an item for something other than it was intended. We are not more lienent this time of year, they will start to expect it all the time.

    Pretty much the same as year round. I stop a bunch of cars, but only write a couple-three cites per ten stops, so I don't really up the warnings.

    Every person I've come in contact with has heard "Have a Merry Christmas" from me. Whether it was a vehicle lockout, traffic stop with warning or with citation. Didn't matter. At least I'm consistent.

    I shot a mental consumer twice with the sl-6 last while wearing a santa hat, does that count.

    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
