  • Rookie Pranks

    Anyone have stories of jokes or pranks played on yourself as a rookie, or other people?

    Any stories of rookies, or you for that matter, doing something very dopey after being hired?

    Spiral out. Keep going, going...

    Our FYCs (First Year Constables) have a competency book which they much complete as part of their first year after graduation from the Academy. As such, it is a fairly important document and they ensure that it is not lost or damaged because without proof that they have successfully completed it, they are unable to be confirmed as a Police Officer.

    The best prank I've seen is this FYC wasn't taking good care of it and he was continually leaving his competency book lying around the day-room. So one weekend, an officer who shall remain nameless heat sealed his book in plastic and third filled a deep tray with water and froze that water. Once the water was frozen, he placed the sealed book in the tray and covered it with more water and placed it all back in a freezer, turning it into a fairly large iceblock.

    The Monday after his shift, the FYCs FTO asked for his competency book and the FYC was unable to locate it and others were saying words like "cool", "chill out", etc. When the FYC finally took the hint and found his iceblock, there was a fair bit of laughter going on.
    If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence of your attempt.

        One of our guys left his evidence camera (35mm) unsecured so the two pranksters of the office put a double moonshot on it and put it back in its place. He didn't discover the prank until a defense attorney asked for copies of all the pictures on the roll.

          Guys that leave their computer open and walk away may get a few mass emails sent out stating how great they are, touting their investigative skills, their love for Leonardo DiCaprio, etc.

          Same guys may return to find the word "penis" inserted several times into the report they were typing....hopefully they find it

            A trainee didn't lock his computer when he and his FTO left a substation to handle a call. They returned, the trainee resumed report writing and the FTO checked his email. The FTO stopped, glared at the trainee and asked (more like yelled) who the hell he thought he was. The trainee looked mystified and asked what the FTO meant. FTO started to go off on him and said to explain the email that he had just opened and started to read.

            The email was from his trainee and pretty much went as follows:
            "Dear FTO,
            Now that I am in the 12th week of field training, I think it's time we cleared some things up. I feel that I have received all the training necessary and anything further will be of no benefit. It's time that we put me in checkout so I can get to solo status and allow the department to benefit from my talents. There are also some suggestions I have for you to improve your skills as an FTO:
            1. Stop talking about yourself so much. Nobody wants to hear your stories.
            2. Training is for my benefit, so I will be the one to decide when we eat lunch.
            (A few more suggestions, don't remember what they were.)
            10. Teach your trainee to lock his computer so that his beat partners don't send emails like this to you."

            ---------------
            No, I wasn't the FTO or trainee or email tamperer.

                    i remember a few years ago when I had first gotten off FTO our dispatcher gives me a call to investigate a suspicious vehicle parked on the corner of a residential area during the day. I see the truck (dark tint so I cannot see inside) and pull up behind it and start walking towards the driver's door since the vehicle is running. As I'm walking to the door the truck takes off and now i'm ****ed, i get back to my unit and chase it down the road with lights and sirens. I was about to call out that the vehicle was refusing to stop when it pulled over and came to a halt. It hadnt gone more than a few blocks. I was still green so I was still trying to figure out what to do. I decide to make my standard approach with my meanest face ever and the window rolls down maybe two inches when I tap on it. I yell to put it all the way down and when it does two of our school resource officers are in there cracking up. it wasnt anything crazy, but it does make you feel like you are part of the team when you have these things happen to you, especially as a rookie. I often wonder how this prank might have turned out if I had called out a pursuit or got them out at gunpoint...


                    As for other pranks the usual applies...plenty of times when an officer goes into the sallyport to book a prisoner, comes out to his unit and finds his heater on and set to full blast and all their gear on the driver's seat. An officer leaves his POV's car keys laying around and his truck is moved to the impound lot. A rookie drove around for a week with a very visible rainbow sticker on his back bumper that wasnt placed there by him.

                      On my final day of field training, my FTI and I spent a lot of time in the station finishing up paperwork. Unbeknownst to us, someone had turned our car on and put the heat on full blast early in the day, expecting the car to be a little toasty when we came out. What the prankster didn't know was that we stayed in the station for 9 hours wrapping things up and BSing. When I went out to grab my stuff and do the honorary 1 hour of solo, I burned my hand on my key and clipboard. The car had actually gotten so hot inside that the MDT would not function!
                      Magistrate: "Do you have any other pending charges?"
                      Drunk: "Well there's this thing where the cops said I spit blood on them."
                      Me: "Wait a minute, that was me!"
                      Drunk: "Oh... now you like me even less."

                        When we had the old rotator emergency lights, we'd change the red and blue lenses to the opposite sides of the rookies cars and see how long it took them to realize it.

                          while it's not a "police" thing, we used to prank rookies all the time at the Prison. We would radio for them knowing they were taking a deuce. Ask them their location. Some of them would be stupid enough to come across and say "i'm in the bathroom right now". I just never answered those calls.

                          the prison i worked at was a farm prison. when we had rookies in the wall towers other officers used to phone them, say they were the shift captain, and to call back into the captain the cattle count. they'd always say "you want me to do what?" and the captain impersonator would say "I told you call me back with the CATTLE COUNT". thinking they were going to be scorned by a captain, they would go out on the walk, count the heiffers, then call the real captain and say something like "sir, we've got 32 head in the northern pasture." and the captain, who had nothing to do with said prank, would be like "what the hell are you talking about?" then they realized they had been made a fool of. One of my favorites.

                            One time my boss and his fam were gone on vacation, so I stuck like 500 plastic forks in his yard.
