    Breaks?



    What are breaks?

    We have a 2200 member department here, and in the summer, while Joe and John continuously shoot at eachother, even though our contract says we're supposed to get one, we don't.

    If our dispatcher deems it too busy to take a break, we don't get one. They can't deny us a bathroom break, but in the wintertime, in the past, I've gone 30 minutes without an assignment, and that was the longest.

    This is how police officers master the art of mulit tasking.

    Driving, grabbing things in the squad (radio dials people!) talking on a radio, listening, watching, eating, and drinking, all at the same time.

    Yeah, we used to request permission, until a SGT realized that we know when we are busy and dispatchers are a county agency, not a part of our department, so they don't dictate our rules.

    I think it's technically in our contract that we get a meal break, but I've never heard anyone call out with that. Usually you're shift mates are pretty good at helping out and taking your calls if they know you just sat down to eat... but sometimes you get stuck running from the table to the car.

As for other breaks thank heaven for 7-11 dirty bathrooms and all the coffee/water/slurpees you can drink, gotta love the hood!

    None of us are ever allowed to take breaks. Nor can we use the bathroom unless we recieve permission from the headmaster.
