    Dontcha love it? It's VERY difficult to maintain my composure when I call on location at a call for a toothache at 3am on Sunday morning and my patient meets me at the curb with her bags packed and three or four "mastercaid" cards in hand.

    At my last ambulance squad, our nextdoor neighbor ran a catering business. It was a well-known fact that his "cash only" business was funded with foodstamps. He'd buy the food for the business with foodstamps, take in cash for the catering, and then make the payment for his cadillac, his truck, and his 60" plasma TV. Oh, and his kids ate McDonald's every day.

    And here I am, working my butt off to be a positive contribution to society, I still don't make enough to pay for my own health insurance, but I make too much to get any help. I'd probably have a better lifestyle if I just quit and figured out how to work the system.

    Damn my morality!

    • For those of you that carry voice recorders devices with you on patrol, is it legal to record someone in NYS without their knowledge?

          Who knows, I'll just wait to be surprised by the mail one day. If I had to guess I would say sometime in July.

          • Hopefully it won't take until July. Processing for the first academy will have to move pretty quickly either way if it is to be held around Jan.

              You might be getting confused with recording phone calls, where NY is in fact a one party state. Basically as long as one party is aware it is legal.

              A motorist on a traffic stop has recorded me and I have been recorded making arrests. All of this is perfectly legal as long as they don't interfere with my investigation. Just better make sure I have my Stetson on, right HXD This is no different than our vehicles, which have cameras in them. Those motorists are being recorded on video and audio.

                That's right. But not because I'm watching. We ALL know that any UTT issued while not in full uniform gets thrown out in court.

                    This is not true, is it? (Sarcasm HXD?)

                      That's what my supervisor told me when I got jammed up on a Art 15 in Minot for sleeping on duty... so I accused my Commander (an O-5) of sleeping around on his wife... it didn't work

                      Hmm... you guys still have cameras? Mine was the last one down here but the mic car broke so I had video with no audio then the camera started acting up and they pulled the vault. I miss it a great deal... It was fun playing back SFST's in the patrol room while proscessing a drunk. I use a digital recorder now.

                      • I just got my PA trooper scores back and I took that in the beginning of May. It was the exact same test, and actually had NYS Troopers on the cover.

                            You guys had vaults? That's OLD technology! They have systems out there that replace the OEM rearview mirror and record to a compact-flash card built into the unit. I know a bunch of local agencies have these units in their cars, and they absolutely love them.

                              SO when you record someone on a traffic stop, do you have to tell them that they're being recorded?

                                took the same test on may 18th and got back my score today, scored a 90. I hope I did that good on the NYSP test.
