I have to say that I really like having three guys on my shift :))

Tonight has been a blast, at one point I had six officers out on the street. My new guy fits in great with the two original officers and has figured out how nice and easygoing I am (which translates easy to pick on I guess lol)

We haven't had a problem with calls stacking tonight, just being steady and the guys out finding things to do.

We ended last shift with an unattended death, my first to work behind the radio and it never fails to floor me that I'm handling the details of the death of someone's loved one. Doesn't bother me, just tends to stay with me and I use it to help when the next one roles around.

I have to say that Monday night was really a lot of fun. I'm glad none of the guys know about this blog, because they might be tempted to shoot me. I went and rode on the hoot shift, and as we were leaving the station I jokingly told my officer, "let's go get into some trouble..just kidding". Yeah I know, never say stuff like that because you will get into something.

Abt 15 minutes later we're dispatched to a SVA, turns out the guy is impaired and all that fun stuff. So, I received a crash course in DUI arrests and learned about the joys of having to wait in the ER while he's medically cleared.

After 2.5 hours of waiting and listening to his dumb ass complain that there needs to be a stop sign at the highway intersection (which there is) we finally get him to the county jail. At 415 we make it back to the station where we get to plow through the mess of paperwork which awaits us...finished up about 6 so I decided to cat out about 630 to get some sleep... this whole school thing really puts a cramp in my style for sure.

The point of this is, I think I'm addicted to being a cop. Don't mind the paperwork, don't mind the waiting, just enjoy being able to do something I find both enjoyable and worthwhile. Sorta like dispatching...have to say though, it's a letdown having to be stuck in here while the action is going on outside :)

Oh thank God it's Friday for me.. I'm looking forward to tomorrow, since it's also Labor Day which means no school and no work :)

Well, I was a dork and bought another gun last week. I've been wanting a .380 for a while, and finally broke down and bought one. It's definitely the smallest gun I've ever owned, fits in my pocket perfectly :)

All I have to do is slide it into my jeans pocket and I'm good to go. It's a Diamondback and is basically a miniature Glock, breaks down the same way, long trigger pull safety and etc. It's pretty awesome :) and I'm a dork.

So, I've been having a little drama in my personal life, nothing new there, I guess. I recently posted about my feelings for a co-worker, and nooow it's all weird. :)

I've decided to just move away, do my damndest to keep from going to his shift and have fun. Yeah, you could say I took a chance and it didn't work out, but I knew the risks so it's just whatever, you know? :)

I'm ok with it and am just ready for my newest guy to get on shift, hopefully he'll livin up the shift :) I can only hope!
