    The city which is the county seat where I work hired an officer who was a former stripper. It didn't work that well. She did not last long. Quite a few guys were all over it. She did some, to put it nicely, very questionable things.

    I think the straw that broke the camels back was her in the report writing offices after work. She stripped off her uniform and only had on very sheer panties and bra. Suddenly everybody had to write reports. Before that little episode everyone wanted to stay on the streets and play and put off the report writing. Word spread fast and the whole freaking department was up there. Guys who hadn't made a felony pinch in decades were up there writing felony reports. I swear they even did reports dating back to the 1800's. Well shortly after that she was a civilian.

    Oh yeah. One of my buddies hooked up with her. He didn't call her back the next day. She found him on a traffic stop and lit into him while he was at the driver window of the vehicle he stopped. Something along the line "if you are gonna give me a good ______ atleast have the decency to call me back." Yea. That went over like a lead balloon.

    Let me start off by saying. I don't really have a problem with stripping as a profession and I don't think it should limit someone's ability to get a career in law enforcement on the surface.

    *HOWEVER* I've worked in a city that bordered a strip club. As such I've backed up a lot of calls in strip clubs and have dealt with strippers at our hotel and traffic stops. I will say prostitution and drug use is very common among strippers. Also I wonder about the personality who is attracted to stripping as a profession. So I think a stripper is far more likely to have more stuff in their background opposed to people in other professions.

    But like I said if they have a clean background, I don't see a problem with them getting a cop job.

    BTW... went to the academy with a female that had worked briefly as a stripper 10 years prior. I wouldn't she was top of the class. But she did fine in the academy and 6+ years later is still in law enforcement.

Many a couple has 'those' pictures and i would.dare.a.chief to question me about my adult and consenting sexual practices.

    Excuse the periods. I have a new phone and it is right beside the spacebar.
    I agree...however being a farmer, bouncer or preacher has less of a chance to bite the dept in the butt or cause embarrassment to them than a stripper.

    I agree with MDREP as if it was a different community, town, city, state, whatever where there would be a very unlikely chance that any "customers" swould recognize her and perhaps cause problems, then I personally would not have a problem with it...depts need to look out for themselveswhen hiring and want to not put themselves in a position where they will have issues

If they are called into question for.strippkng why are their patrons not regarded in the same light? If you are or were a stripper you are somehow not professional?
    Ummmm......No ma'am...I neither equated strippers with bad guys nor immaturity, actually you did, (at least with the "suspect" part), as I was responding to your post.....

    I advised if I handled a call involving a stripper, (where in your post you advised she was a "victim or a suspect"), I would act professionally as Im sure most other officers would.. I AM IMMATURE, therefore Im sure I would be making comments after the call was over to my co-workers about her or her profession...youre a cop and you know that cops talk after calls usually about the calls they were just on...a known stripper would most likely generate the subject of that conversation between LEOs during that time..

    Too make sure, I have re-read my post twice now just in case I mis-typed, as you usually dont mis-read things, but I cannot find where I equated the 3. Am I missing something??

    Respectfully,
    CC


    EDITED TO ADD: I think I see what youre saying...my last line about we have to follow rules, bad guys dont...MEANING - WE probably wont make cat calls, suggestions, "unprofessional behavior", etc to a stripper if encountered during a call.

    The "bad guys", (the ones giving the stripper female cop crap), DO NOT abide by our code of "professionalism" and therefore it may be highly likely that an a-ahole bad guy would harrass the female arresting him who used to be a stripper..
    I apologize for not articulating that earlier
    respectfully...

    LOL. I can see this applicant using her prior stripping experience to explain how she would work well undercover.

    I think a lot of departments would have a problem with it. There have been officers fired in the past for posting pictures of themselves in the public domain the agency did not care for. I know there was a female officer (in TX I believe) who was fired for posing in Playboy and that was held up as justified by the courts.

    Personally if I were a chief, I would probably enquire about what led her down that path. If I thought she was mature and had put it behind her I wouldn't have a big problem with it. I would probably prefer however that we were not the same town (or nearby) as her pervious career. I would also like for her to ensure me there aren't any videos floating around the internet that will come back and bite us on the behind.

Will the jokes/observations fly when the call is over??? Of course, without a doubt, BUT just as they do on calls that dont involve "adult entertainers".

    As we know..we have to be good on calls, bad guys dont usually have to adhere our "rules"

    HEY!!!!! easy there....you're going to be planting ideas in peoples heads LOL

    Would that mean that Officers on duty would treat a victim/suspect different if she were the stripper they'd seen in the club the weekend prior? It goes both ways.

    perhaps we should see pics to give a fair and accurate answer...

    seriously though, I doubt it would be a "disqualifier" on the mission statement, however Im sure the dept wont want any embarrassment if some a-hole on a call recognizes her from having her boobs in his face last yearat a club...FOR A DOLLAR....you see the issue
