Any cops here?





If so, what country and how long? What made you decide to join the force?

...do you fear sometimes for your future?




Just curious. Any info would be highly appreciated.

Dan (Delta767300ER) is training to be a police officer, and he has my utmost respect for that.


Throughout my life, I've learned that if you respect law enforcement, they will respect you right back, and usually to a greater degree.

That's why I've gotten myself out of a few tickets in some very strict counties in Texas........I treat police officers like regular human beings, respectfully, not like they are my enemy, like most people do.

Throughout my life, I've learned that if you respect law enforcement, they will respect you right back, and usually to a greater degree. That is 100% true. Ever since I young my Grandparents had a family friend who was in the NZ police. The now retired Superintendent, who up intill a few years ago always appeared in every road safety campaign on TV and in the papers. He also appeared heaps of times on the 6pm news about road safety. Well he treated me and my family with huge repect. The now retired cop even got my grandad out of a speeding ticket which the courts refused to accept that he did not commit.

I know heaps of police officers from my local police station and all of them treat me with huge respect, some of the police officers also attended my nanas funeral earlier this year, in full police uniform and they also joined in the funeral possesion from the church to the cemetery, with full flashing lights going.

I am not a law enforcement officer but have worked with many of them as a court officer (ie. court clerk, Probation Officer, Pretrial Services Officer) and have the utmost respect for what they do for us everyday. I did consider becoming a United States Postal Inspector and could still pick up on that possibility if I so desired. They are regular folks just like us, just doing a job and one that many people would not want to do themselves for various reasons.

My uncle is a sergeant with the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, who is in charge of security at BWI. He joined because he loves aircraft and his father was also a police officer, so what better than to be a cop at the airport!

Don't kid yourself.

I worked 3 years for a police department and while we had some great people working for us, we also had some of the dregs of society who took the job solely to further their own ego-driven agenda. These are the guys who flash their badges at hookers on their day off to squeeze a free blowjob and other such distasteful crap.

Your average police officer is more of a prick than you can imagine. The only reason he is kept in check is because the brass and/or internal will have his ass on a plate if he did half the shit he really wanted to.

Applying the central limit theorem to police officers...

basically, there are many outstanding, respectful police officers.

There are even more that are just police and are not outstanding

And then there are some that are self-righteous sons of bitches on power trips.

I once got a ticket for stopping two feet long of the circuit line of a stop sign on my way to visit my high school sweetheart.

and mind you, the intersection was one where if you stop at the circuit line...you will not see jack from what is coming from your left.
