  • Unwritten Rules

    What are some of the "unwritten" rules of public service law enforement? These are the rules that knowone talkes about, but you just kind of learn as time goes on. I'm talking about the rules that ensure job security and dealing with suporvisors.

    Rule #1

    Recruits should keep their mouths shut and eyes open.

      Good luck in your LE interview with this mindset. Your integrity is obviously not what it should be, that is if you are serious.
      absolutly,,,

      good unwritten, go home at the end of shift. *and still have a job*

        "Unwritten Rules" Here it's "If you Really want to be successful (I'm not), Rat out other offs. Don't voice an opinion. The precinct walls have "ears". If you want a "real" (whatever that means) back-up,hope for a male off. Don't trust suprv., it really is "us" vs. "them". Admit nothing,deny everything,demand proof. . There are a bunch of others,but I'm late for work.BYE.

          1) Don't be a slug and "let" others do your work. Get it done! If not, your fellow officers will find ways to "inspire" you to work or hit the road. Aside that they can make your life hell when you need help (not referring to officer safety stuff)

          2) Don't be a tattle tale. BE NO MEANS do I mean to cover up another officers criminal activity. That would also sink your carreer, that's just stupid. What I mean is don't go running to Sarge with, "Billy keeps leaving the car dirty". Take care of that crap on your own.

          3) Take pride in yourself and be proficient at your job. Others will take note and respect you for it. (not a kiss ***).

          4) ASK! Ask the old guys if you have a question. (They have nothing better to do anyway ) They are (some are) a wealth of knowledge and can make your life easier, by learning fom their mistakes and not having to repeat them yourself.

              unwritten rules/advise

              here's a few: mind your own business and do your job,
              respect your veteran officers,
              don't be a hero, success takes team work, you are not a "TEAM" if you don't care about eachother.
              Evenif you don't likeafellow officer treat him/her with respect, you only have eachother to rely on when facing death.
              Take pride every day in your work, you keep our cities operating,
              don't think you know everything unless you have the degrees to prove it.

              untill next time.

                By the way, I'm am all for Internal affairs. If you are corrupt you should be hunted down like Bin Laden. Remember this: therse nothing worse than being a corrupt cop (In Prison). Bad Boys! Bad Boys!.... you know the rest.

                  Don't be a Kiss *** to brass....don't stab fellow officers in the back....keep your mouth shut if you don't know what your talking about...and if a fellow officer screws up, he probably knows it, there is no need to rub it in....come into work and do your job, thats all they can ask....just a few things i learned

                      Always tell the truth.

                      Go home at the end of the day (it's already been said, but it merit's being said again).

                      It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

                        My Lt. told me "It's our job to find out what you do wrong" .Here i've seen suprv. do investigations on offs. BEFORE being advised of the inv. (a Union contract violation) which my Union does nothing about. they stake out offs. homes & have contacted suspects at the jail & asked them if they were treated fairly . 3 yrs ago I had a Sgt. who told me " I'm never going to investigate a complaint (against an Off.) I'm not going to sustain". Obviously in his eyes you're guilty until proven innocent & as far as he's concerned NO off. he inv. is innocent! I've heard (NOT heard of) suprv. encourage isolating offs. from their squad members, tell them to "just get the f--k out!" referring to the Dept. & told flat out that NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO YOU"RE A 20 yr. patrolman, at best! Now with these kinds of nightmares going on you'd think I'd be eating my gun or would have left when I reached my 20yrs. But I'm still here, (at 27yrs on) , shift 3 in a beat car working for guys that were in grade school when I started the job. Why? Because like the rest of you, I believe in the job & the legal system more than I do my suprvisors.

                          As told to me by one of my LT's.......

                          "10 percent of the stress in this job is generated by the criminals, the public, and the politicians......

                          90 percent is generated by your co-workers........"

                          How true!

                            There aren't any unwritten rules, nor are there any unwritten laws.

                            They are all in writing somewhere, or they simply don't exist ...
                            ... except in mind of the person trying to convince you that they exist.


                            Adios amigos.
