I've been up for almost 24 hours.
I woke up early this morning (well 5/23/06) because I was being sworn in and I was so excited I was in a light sleep. Anyways, I woke up around 3 am 5/23/06, went back to sleep from 5-7am then finally got up and started getting ready.
I got sworn in as a reserve around 8:45am and my wife pined my badge on me while my mom taped it. It was pretty damn cool. I went home for about an hour then went to a uniform supply store to buy some duty gear (actually I just wanted some toys to play with ), but still have so much more to get. I went out from about 10:30am until 2:30. In that time I didn't really get to see too much, but damn it was fun. We went to St. Louis City to pick up a prisoner they were holding for us. Damn that was a...well...erie situation. We locked our guns in the trunk of our car and proceeded into the holding facility. It was pretty tense walking down the hall with inmates (some chained/cuffed and some not) that out numbered us (CO's included) probably 10:1. Some of the women in the holding cell were trying to hit on me...good times. Hell, some of the time we were making our way to get our prisoner there are places where officers are actually locked in a holding cell with prisoners. Pretty damn intimidating if you ask me. I got to cuff the prisoner, but when I went to get my brand new cuffs out of my brand new cuff case they were stuck *doh*. So I looked like an idiot rookie and had to grab for my other pair. No one really noticed except perhaps the inmates, we were too busy watching them and they were too busy watching us.
Anyways, after that we ran some traffic, some lady cried her way out of a ticket. I couldn't bare to watch I was too busy LMAO by the PC. After that we went to assist another officer with an arrest he made and me and him searched the car. We found a pretty good sized bag of weed, but don't worry because it didn't belong to the guy driving the car. Even though it was right between the driver seat and center console. I might have believed him, but the fact that he kept swearing to god it wasn't his just seemed over the top lol. Funny how religious people get when the cuffs go on.
I went to my full time job from 3pm-11pm and damn it was a struggle to put on that security uniform. Wearing it, I felt like crap. It just did not feel right at all. That's all I have to say about that 8 hour period of my day, I fought through it and couldn't wait to get back out on the street.
I changed back into my PD uniform at work and was back out on the street by 11:45pm and had planned to stay till 2am. Nothing happened at all, we did some business checks of local car dealerships. Nothing worth mentioning. I headed back to the station to go home and a buddy of mine was just arriving back with a guy he arrested for 96 in a 60, no license, and warrants from another city (ironically enough, from the city I withdrew from to be a reserve where I am now). I hung around with him because I hate the idea of a single officer back there with prisoners in any number. I helped out a bit and printed the guy, made some copies, and learned some of the computer system. All in all it was a good night.
I am going to have to wait until this weekend though before I can get permission to go out again lol. Which is all good, first weekend since the local high school seniors graduated and I believe the first weekend of summer. I'm sure there will be some parties to bust up and some old high school friends I'll run into. Heh, I am already quickly learning that working in the place you live won't be easy. I've already barred myself from Taco Bell, Mr Weedman from above works there, and from Long John Silver's, Mr Weedman's girlfriend works there.

A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.
