  • Policemen on Cellular Phones

    I get frustrated sometimes when I see a policeman on a cell phone without an earpiece. How can these guys do this then give me a ticket. Do they write themselves a summons'? If I take a picture of them with my cell phone, (while I'm driving) can I send it to someone who will do something?

      Is it against the law in PA to talk on the phone while driving?

          Why is it that people seem to actually believe that if they go to a police website to criticize the police that they could possibly get a favorable response?

          Anyways I degress,

          In response to the questions:
          There is a pretty damn good chance that this officer is calling in to dispatch in regards to something work related that either can't be put over the radio for privacy reasons, or to basically avoid the world hearing it. Just one of the many thing police officers do to help protect and serve the public. How would you like the world listening on a police scanner that the police are responding to your house because you just called them to rat on someone for playing music too loud? (which i'm sure you do) That's on a small scale what if it were something quite private and personal in regards to your family and the world was able to listen to all the details because officers couldn't call on their cell phone to protect your privacy. By the way I almost forgot to mention, most officers are doing this on their dime too, using their own personal cell phone that the department doesnt even pay for.

                While its not illegal to drive and talk on a handheld cellphone, radio, walky-talky or to a passenger in SC, please feel free to continue doing it wherever else you drive. We don't need anymore nattering ninny's who can't talk with their hands and think about driving here. Our courtesy just can't stand it.

                And you're welcome.

                  How dare any member of the public question the police.

                    Heck, JUST a cell phone?! Most of us are typing on the MDC, talking on radio, looking for bad guys AND talking on the cell phone.

                      It appears that his question includes the "How do I get the officer in trouble" theme. If an officer is doing something wrong then he has the right to report it. However, as I'm sure you are aware Retired, LE does alot of things that the general public either has no clue about or because of personal prejudice towards LE perceive the action(s) as wrong or a double standard.

                      In this particular situation, it is very common for LE to make a cell phone call to obtain confidential information while enroute to a call.

                      However, if the officer is making a personal call on company time while driving where there is a statue against said action then it is a double standard which should not happen.

                        This would be the closest to the truth. Except you forgot drinking a cup of coffee, chewing gum, etc.

                            Is that a fine wine or just a cheap imitation whine?

                              I see it as a cheap, boxed 7-Eleven wine (no offense to box wine drinkers).
