A little info for all.
A LITTLE INFO WE ALL SHOULD KNOW
When you see an emergency vehicle behind you with its lights and sirens on,
pull to the Nearest curb, and Stop. We are usually required to pass cars on the
When you're driving in the fast lane and you see a cop behind you, don't go
5 mph under the speed limit. We are not impressed by how safe of a driver
you can be, we're trying to go help someone (or catch that guy in the SUV
that just cut you off). Safely move over and let us pass please.
If you know or suspect your driver's license is SUSPENDED or you know you're RIDING DIRTY, DONT drive like an idiot!
If you get a warning instead of a ticket from a motorcycle cop, go buy a lottery ticket, because you've already beaten the odds.
When you see an officer conducting a traffic stop, or with a suspect in handcuffs, it is generally not a good idea to approach him and ask for directions. If you do, don't expect the officer to be nice when he tells you to get lost, and don't expect the officer to take the time to explain.
If a cop causes a car accident we usually pay the price, and sometimes we get suspended. When is the last time you got three days off [without pay] for rear-ending a guy at Wal-Mart.
If you think you can fan all the pot smoke out of the car before we smell it, good luck.
We know you've had more than two beers! When I've had two beers, I didn't hit six parked cars or drive my car through the front doors of a Toys-R-Us, pissed my pants, or passed out at a traffic light.
Here's how to get out of a ticket: Don't break the law!
If you drive a piece of crap, that is why you're getting pulled over. In one
shift we can pull over ten cars for minor equipment violations.
* 5 out of 10 had no vehicle insurance.
* 3 out of 10 had suspended driver's licenses.
* 2 out of 10 had warrants.
* 1 out of 10 had felony warrants.
* 1 was a known sex offender with his 12 year old niece in the car without her mothers knowledge.
If you've just been pulled over doing 70 in a 35, do not greet the officer with "what seems to be the problem, officer".
We get coffee breaks too, and sometimes we run into stores and do some shopping during them.
When you're the victim of a burglary, take the time you spend waiting for the officer to find the model ..'s and the serial ..'s of the stuff that was taken.
Some cops are just jerks, but take heart in the fact that other cops don't like them either.
If it's nighttime and you're driving a vehicle with tinted windows and I pull you over, it's not because of your skin color. I usually can't tell if the vehicle even has a driver until the windows rolled down.
Every time you hear on the news about people running away from a crazed gunman, someone's son or daughter in a police uniform is running TOWARD that crazed gunman.
If your local police agency has a helicopter everyone knows
it's loud and annoying, but did you know it can cover the same area as 15-20 patrol officers, and safely chase criminals that are driving 90 MPH through city streets. Many times the guy has no idea it's there and slows down.
Your 5 year old kid getting pushed down by another 5 year old kid is NOT a police matter; talk to the other kid's parents, not the police.
If your kid won't do his homework or do his chores, 911 is not the answer for a uniformed parent.
Police work is...writing reports.
If you rob a gas station you're only going to get $20, but I get to see a police K-9 use your arm as a chew toy. For all I care you can keep the $20.
In one year of patrol work in a large city only about 10 minutes would be cool enough to be on the television show, COPS. But if COPS was about report writing and accident reports each show would be a year long.
Every traffic stop could end in gunfire, but we have to be polite and professional until that time.
I've taken about the same amount of men and women to jail for domestic violence, so NO it's not always the man.
People love fire fighters.
If you find crack pipes in the ladies purse, there is a good chance they belong to her.
If the light was yellow, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
Cops know you pay taxes and that your taxes pay cops' salaries. Cops also pay taxes, which also pay cops' salaries so, hey, this traffic stop is on me.
Now sign here; press hard. there are four copies.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)

"A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
brought my rifle."
(just stole this one hope you don't mind)
The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

Correction...if you are SUSPENDED or RIDIN' DIRTY do drive like an idiot please. You can tell the officer that meets you Five-0 said it was OK.

Yeah, good post. But I have a feeling the idiots that need to won't read it. Maybe if you showed it on Entertainment Tonight or printed it this month's People Magazine it will get out the right people
