    Relief is where we work two days and two nights. The fifth day we actually overlap the normal day shift so we are able to do our reports, meetings and whatnot without sacrificing coverage.

    Could you explain relief. Is that the shift that is between days and Graveyard?

    Ok great! Another question, How does your days off work. Is there a rotation? for instance, One month you have mon & tue off the next month you have wed & thur off?

    We are on the squad system here.

    Every 2 months we'll rotate between days, nights and relief. We work five 8 hours shifts. Nights are on call until 0300 and then days gets them.

    while you might start off on a grave yard shift in a metro area, you are free to transfer to other shifts/squads if they have openings ( after your probationary period is up ). For what it's worth, many outer lying/remote duty areas do not have a graveyard shift, they've got days and swing shifts only. If something happens late at night, they call out officers from home to take care of it. Call-outs are hit and miss, some guys get called out a lot, some guys haven't been called out in months.

    Some of the outer-lying areas rotate, as well as a few squads in Yuma ( I've heard ). Other places, your schedule is set in stone ( barring training and court ). Most squads in my area work 4/10's. Alot of remote duty squads ( Ajo, Kayenta ) work 5/8's.
