I am a 911 dispatcher and control operator for a major metropolitan city. These calls are real.
This is my diary.

As a third shifter, I often wonder why these hoodlums are awake in the middle of the night to even be creating all this drama. And then I remember- they’re hoodlums. Fueled by boredom and written in about ten minutes, I give you:
"Do You Wanna Go Job Hunting?"
(Sung to the tune of “Do you wanna build a snowman?” from Frozen.). *Ahem*
Do you wanna go job hunt-ing?
It’s time to get up off your ass!
You’re living on your momma’s couch,
and stinking up her house.
You think she’s proud of that?
It’s time to be a grown up.
Come on, let’s go, and
be productive cit-i-zens!
Do you wanna go job hunting?
Too bad, c’mon get dressed, we’re go-ing!
Do you wanna go job hunt-ing?
You know the chicks don’t dig a slob.
You better put some money in the bank.
Your hoopty car is jank.
Have you got no class at all?
Your no belt baggy pants,
and backwards flat-bill cap,
don’t make you look like a thug!
Tsk, tsk. Tsk, tsk.
Come on, it’s time to go job hunt-ing!
That pot will land your ass in jail.
Baby momma needs some help from you,
and all your bills are due.
Better get ‘em in the mail!
There’s nothing wrong with flipping burgers.
A job’s a job,
and how you earn true respect!
Do you wanna go job hunt-ing? (whispered)
Just read an article that my agency takes on average 252 911 calls an hour, which is up 3000 from this time last year.
I think the residents of this city are FINALLY realizing that they are going to have to step up if they want to take their neighborhoods back from the drugs and violence that have been so prevalent lately. We can only do so much- we can only help as much as these residents allow. The community is a huge asset to crime solving and prevention. We have to cooperate and work together. People have to begin taking responsibility for the activities on their streets and I think this is a good sign that that’s happening.
I am not on this list (mine has a little more emphasis on law enforcement), but I know a lot of you do ems/fire or both ems/LE. Thought you might like, enjoy!
I am the police, and I’m here to arrest you. You’ve broken the law. I did not write the law. I may even disagree with the law, but I will enforce it. No matter how you plead, cajole, beg, or attempt to stir my sympathies, nothing you do will stop me from placing you in a steel cage with gray bars. If you run away, I will chase you. If you fight me, I will fight back. If you shoot at me, I will shoot back. By law I am unable to walk away. I am a consequence. I am the unpaid bill. I am fate with a badge and a gun. Behind my badge is a heart like yours. I bleed, I think, I love, and yes I can be killed. And although I am but one man, I have thousands of brothers and sisters who are the same as me. They will lay down their lives for me, and I them. We stand watch together. The thin blue line, protecting the prey from the predators, the good from the bad. We are the police.

"No Bre, not again."
☀️G’morning peeps☀️ This pic captures two Rosenberg, TX PD officers playing a ‘lil 🏀2-on-2🏀 with neighborhood kids. Is there anything wrong with this pic? Apparently some community members felt as though their tax dollars weren’t being well-spent. Ive always felt that it’s better to spend a few minutes showing the youth that we are interested in them and care, rather than spending an hour booking them later, down the road. I’ve never passed a kid with a 🏈🏀⚾️ without at least saying “hello”, and if that leads to a few minutes of tossing the ball around, then Im okay with that. What are YOUR thoughts? #heart #police #lawenforcement #leo #officer #thinblueline #tbl #sheepdog #lapd #fire #emt #dispatcher #igers #fitfam #love #live #life #lift #laugh #happy #smile #inspire #inspiration #motivate #motivation #basketball #football #baseball by la_5_o http://ift.tt/1oRtlbI
I like this picture. As a taxpayer, it warms my heart to see officers taking time to interact with the people they serve. They get such a bad rap nowadays, and while it’s not always well-deserved, I think there are plenty of indiscretions that make their way into the public eye. Officers are people too. Most people don’t realize how much down time the officers sometimes have between runs and patrols and reports. I consider activities like this an investment in our community. No one deals with the police because they’re having a good day. They deal with the police when they’re sick, sad, scared, lost, confused, and heartbroken. Everyone either saw something, experienced something, or did something horrific. This is good PR for the departments but beyond that, it’s good for people to be reminded that the officers serving you come from your neighborhoods just like you.
It builds a bond of trust, one that officers often struggle to earn. I think that if they don’t already (but I think most do) the officers should make an effort to get to know the people in their neighborhoods. Say hi by name, if possible. Communities themselves are one of the most important assets in crime solving and prevention, and the job of police is made that much easier if they trust each other and are willing to help.
So to the people who complain because they feel this wastes taxpayer money, I wonder how they think it should be better spend if not building strong community relations.
