  • Do you have stats?

    I work loss prevention and while we don't have monthly quotas or dollar averages we have to uphold; we do tend to brag to team mates about high dollar apprehensions or the number of apps we have on the year.

    I was just curious if there is anything similiar to that within your workplace. Bragging rights or certain things that you and your co-workers like to boast about.

    Thanks,

      If someone does make a reference about a stupid stat (like bragging about the most felony arrests), I bring up that I had the most DWI arrests last month, which I always do. I had 8 in February and I work ~14 days a month.

        We all have stats. None of us have quotas. Was that all you wanted to know?

          Well.......... Our traffic division has "performance expectations."

He doesn't worry about what workout to do---his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him. The True Believer doesn't care 'how hard it is'; he knows he either wins or he dies. He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home. He knows only the 'Cause.' Now, who wants to quit?"

            I think we all boast a little bit about our hooks, kind of like fishing stories.

                    The fishing reference is pretty funny. I heard that on my first ride along. We were set up for speeders and the Deputy said something along the lines; "It's like fishing, you just have to be patient." Sure enough one comes along.

                      Yep we have that also, but then again if it was set at zero, I would still fail to meet expectations
                      It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

                          We're government employees and we are often looking for grants, so stats are kept for tons of things. I've yet to hear anyone brag about them, though, and few people care. Take care of your beat, your fellow officers, and clean up your own messes and few people care how many X's you did last month.

                            I don't hear a lot of officers talk about stats such as most arrests last month, etc. Those that do brag about those tend to have ego's anyway. Most of what we "brag" about is something exciting or different than the usual night. As mentioned, the fishing stories and nothing more.

                              We never compare stats as we all see it as pointless dribble. We only share the "who has the most bizzare" story from time to time. If you get a boner every time you make an arrest than you're a huge tool.
