It never fails to amaze me how much I still don't know about this job...especially technical stuff involving warrants and the like.

When I first started here, there was an officer who was my primary officer and any question I had pertaining to what to do on the radio, returns or warrants I would ask him. He's since went to county and is a deputy, but tonight I was still asking questions. :)

Funny thing is, he was still answering them.

Oh Monday, How I wish you had been better.

All I can say is that these days better be few and never happen again. I'm generally on the receiving end of phone calls, but this afternoon I got to be the RP.

We've been dealing with the death of my grandmother since 2006, in a nutshell it was a surgery gone bad and ended up in a lawsuit.

Well, her husband, who at previous times has been referred to as my grandfather is completely unstable and a sorry excuse for a human being. He's basically one of the worst kind of people to have to deal with in law enforcement. He's a manipulator and a child abuser.

Mediation finally happened today and it wasn't pretty at all. he basically blew up and flew into an unprecedented rage. If I haven't mentioned it before, he has been EOD'd three times previously. Before they left the attorney's office in Texas, he had already threatened to kill my uncle and dad. The scary thing is, he has several loaded weapons in the vehicle with him. So my poor mother completely trips out and I walk in the door into the middle of it.

I had to call the PD where I work and have an officer come out to file a report, they also put out a BOLO for him. It ended well, they found him back in Tx and were able to cancel the bolo. Aaand, did I mention I decided to visit the cemetery?? Yeah, that probably wasn't the best thing ever. So I'm stressed out, tired from no nap, and emotionally exhausted.

But, hey, I'm glad to be back at work, making the Deputies work tonight, picking up our warrants :))

It's Friday!

I'm always so happy to write these blogs :)
It's been a nice evening so far, not too busy, although if it changed it wouldn't hurt my feelings.

So far, the most ridiculous thing I've dealt with was trying to get a warrant confirmed Saturday night. It took me three tries to the County jail before they finally got their heads out of their collective asses and got it confirmed.

Besides that, the poor EMT on call (who always gets slammed when he works) was indeed, slammed. Things can be absolutely dead when anyone else works call, but the minute he takes over, everything hits the fan. I did forget to mention the power outage on Friday, and the blizzard that hit. Yes, I did say blizzard.

Such is life in Oklahoma, it was literally in the 70s during the day, and by 530 the next morning it was snowing.

It's all melted as of now, but they're predicting yet another cold front in the middle of the week. My monday, no less.
