Otherwise we will wait for 35 minutes around the corner for a call with our phone batteries dying

That is all.

Note: this isn’t mine. Retired trooper friend posted this on Facebook, I enjoyed it.

  1. You’ve thrown a recently purchased beverage out the window because you just got a hot call.

  2. You’re the only person at the party who is introduced to others by your profession.

  3. You’ve had a cold beer after getting home from work, even though it’ seven in the morning.

  4. You’ve had pizza delivered to a cordoned-off crime scene.

  5. You’ve eaten a sandwich next to the coroner, while they’re examining the body on the slab.

  6. You’ve got a permanent “farmer's tan” on your left arm.

  7. You regularly pay the check BEFORE the meal arrives in case you have to leave for a hot call.

  8. You’ve said to a colleague, “Things with me and my ex-wife are awful right now...” and your partner replied quickly back, “Be more specific. Which one?”

  9. You’ve heard more than one person say “You’ve got to believe me. These aren’t my pants.”

  10. You’ve heard a parent tell a kid, “You’d better behave or that police officer will take you to jail.”

  11. You’ve brought a new gun to work, showed it off to your colleagues, and you didn’t get fired.

  12. You've knocked on an elderly person’s door — doing a welfare check a half hour before the end of your shift — muttering under your breath, “Don't be dead, don't be dead, don't be dead.”

  13. You’ve heard “I only had two beers” from more people than you can count — and every last one of them had way more than just two beers.

  14. You’ve responded to a citizen claiming to have “had only two beers” by saying, “Yes, the first and the last, but how many beers were in between?” and/or “How big were those two beers?”

  15. You’ve added the following like of inquiry to your field sobriety tests: “This question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?”

Please dont take this as a hate post, as it is not, I am very pro police and hope to become one someday. All I want to say is please. Please. PLEASE. Get a ride if you have been out drinking. I know the badge Grant's some leniency when it comes to certain things but; I recently learned that one of my friends, who was a CO, was just indicted on vehicular manslaughter charges on top of DUI. I'm not trying to be a dick in any way but; I know the profession enjoys their share of refreshments after work or on vacation please find another ride. It's not worth your, or somebody else's life.

I’m writing a story and would like to pick the brains of anyone who would know about realistic conditions from a point of appx 30 years ago.

So all questions are in this context. The year might not make any difference, but I wanted to mention it in case it does. I hope that’s okay to post these here. I figured I might get a more accurate response than if I posted to /writeresearch

If you happen to know answers to any of those below, would appreciate your input. I’m just an amateur writer, but I still want to make sure my settings are correct as possible.

  1. If you are a detective and you are going out of your jurisdiction out-of-state, being helped on your case by local law enforcement going with you to interview people, would you carry your own gun on you, back then?

  2. What would be the most likely backup gun to carry back then?

  3. Did FBI agents of the time tend to carry backup guns? Were there policies that prohibited that?

  4. In the United States, how were uniformed police officers generally referred to by detectives working in medium or large city police departments when talking to each other informaly? Unis, uniforms, blues? Or was there another term that you don’t see used much anymore?

  5. One of my supporting characters is a lieutenant who is in charge of a shift. But he’s a bit of a legend as he had the highest clearance rate before he became an administrator. Because the case in the story is extremely high profile, he’s been made to be in charge of the case, expecting him to be more hand’s on again, as well as oversee people. I made a point that it’s not typical but he’s the one that shows up and walks the scene and takes notes, and then also works by assigning people to various tasks — Is that realistic to have someone that was promoted step in and be more hands on, because of the nature of a case? Or would that just not happen because it’s not appropriate for someone of his rank?

  6. I’m assuming that pagers were more common for detectives back then than portable phones? Is that an accurate assumption?

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

A patrol deputy requirement is that the individual "Must have at least 20/50 binocular vision without glasses; correctable to 20/20 with glasses and shall not be color blind".

Does this also include contacts?
