God forbid you call in more than 3 stops per shift. I understand dispatching can be an extremely difficult job, although when I'm taking you away from the book you're reading up in communications or taking you away from updating your facebook account ... please don't cry because I'm making you work. Just because I'm not lazy doesn't mean you have to give me attitude when I want to work.
    The only solution is to get all of your buddies together and become one giant traffic unit. Write tons of cites too so the city (or whatever) will get a few extra bucks and be on your side.

    Don't do that you'll end up married to them then they start sleeping around with other cops. Then divorce you and make your life heck after words!

    My buddy change shifts - on the new shift within the first few hours the veteran dispatcher was quick to call the Deputy after he ran two car tags. "we ain't be dooin that..."

    I've got a good dispatcher on my shift but the overall mindset from dispatcher, brass, deputies is unless the vehicle is above 15mph over the limit don't bother. It's not a rule but a mindset. Which is hard for me. When I go to work I want to work ---- damn work ethics come from my father and grandfather. I am not able to put in 12hrs and a few hundred miles and out right IGNORE major violations.

    Oh, ok. I guess turn about isn't fair play then. You can dish it but you can't take it. My mistake. Sorry guys.

    Shhhiiiiiitttttt, sleeping with them is what STARTED the freaking drama. If you men would keep that mess to yourselves....

    Psst-I LOL'd at it, btw.

    Edited to add: In dispatch's defense...the Officers are WAY bigger hootchies than dispatch. That might be due to mobility than anything else.

If we don't get onto each other about this stuff then who will?
    KC I understand your point but as far as I care this is LEO only section of the forum and the public has more things to grip about other than consenting adults doing the do.
    Be safe!

    It may be that way where you are, but here we can joke around with our dispatchers about that. Quit getting your panties in a bunch, it's a joke.

Sounds like it has occurred since you mentioned them being married. That's fine you don't see the joke, perhaps you don't have humor because it wasn't issued to you at your academy.
    I work closely and am friends with MANY of our dispatchers and they would joke right along side me on this.
    You can have the last word and generalize me as being pathetic.
    I laughed at the joke. Mostly because it's true.

    That seems to be the general concensus here, too. They have a lot of dispatchers and call takers working at a time, and always have a couple supervisors on the floor. They don't at all complain about an officer doing their job either. At the same time, they have to go through an academy and have a failure rate that mirrors the police academy. They also don't have internet, TV, or radio available to them. There may be a few who are a tad slower or a little more harsh than others, but they still seem to get the job done.
