  • Average time/distance

    In order to maintain you and your family's personal safety an officer usually drives a considerable distance to keep his work and living conditions distant.

    So my question to you all is, how far do you guys live outside your patrol beats? I know there really isn't a magic number but on your own personal standards what is the proper time/distance?










    Thank you,

    I guesss it would depend where you work....I lived in the area/city I patrolled then moved for school district reasons and now live 1 city away. Neither neighborhood is/was "da hood"...so i guess it depends on the quality of where you are

        123 miles and a change of elevation of 7000'. But I've also been a resident deputy and it took me 2 minutes to walk to the office.

          That's about what...1hr 30min commute?

            It takes me 45 minutes to work, but leaving the city I work in had nothing to do with safety, it was a financial decision.

                    You know what? That's what I'm starting to believe by reading these replies that I've seen.

                      3 miles. But used to travel 45 minutes each way.
                      Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

                        5 minutes/1.4 miles
                        Just about all of us make our homes in a town some other cop doesn't want to live in.

                          I live in the dead center of my patrol area and my commute to work is a little less than 5 seconds....

                            Same here,actually I guess it is more like 10 seconds since I have to navigate around the wifes car and my truck to get to the unit.,even if I didn't have a take home I live about 1/2 mile from the office.
                            .
                            Also you(OP) need to realize a lot of depts have residency requirements ,so there really CANT be a great distance to commute.

                              I've lived within bicycle distance and currently live about a 30-minute drive. If I could afford to live in the town I work, I would. Great schools and a nice community.
