    I'll mirror what all the other experienced cops said.
    What you did was good police work.
    Don't let the idiots drag you down, and don't lower your standards to theirs. Just keep on keepin' on.

    Well it hasn't lowered our level of respect. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks guys- I considered the things down this line- Its not that they dislike me I dont think- I believe the exact wordage was more along the lines of "it lowered their level of respect for you a little bit- and it is seen as a concern"

    thanks for the replys.

    What did I say wrong?

    First of all, your taking the time to learn the area your agency serves, is very commendable. I don't know any of the Officers on your agency, so really cant' make any judgments concerning how they do their jobs. What would concern me, is the fact that you put yourself at risk in the scenario you posted. I'm not saying to not get involved, I'm saying use good judgment, and common sense. It's very possible that the guys feel you're out playing cop. That may or may not be true, but it can certainly be a perception.

    One thing I have learned on forums is not to be too hasty to take one side for what it's worth. I would assume that the officers on this forum don't do so while on-duty, so why do it here?
    Excellent point! I retract and apologize for the part of my post where I said "If the guys in your area don't want work". Upon further review dispatchers send the police to the calls not go and investigate for themselves.

    Ill bet if we got a cop that responded to the call we would get another side of it and it might have a different happier ending. God knows I love happy endings.

    Sounds like cops believe you are acting like a wannabe. I wouldn't call them lazy. They are probably out patrolling and looking for activity when they get called off to handle something they feel is a waste of time.

    I don't believe we are getting the whole story. If the cops are disliking you there has to be more to the story.

    While doing your rounds, how many times have you called for something that looks out of place? At face value, the supervisor may be using "some of the guys" routine to convey what he means.

    That was my first impression of the story. My second impression was exactly what Irishluck talked about.

    First thing that I would suggest is NOT to pull up behind vehicles at a place where you know could be being robbed. You are putting yourself at risk.
    Now as for calling the police, you did the right thing, but again you were too close to the potential bad guys. If the cops in your area don't want to work remember that when it comes time to dispatch " you tell them where to go!"
    Keep up the good work!

    3 AM? The call probably interfered with their "Sheep Count"

    First I want to say you did nothing wrong. I started my career in a smaller agency and I had to deal with the same crap. When I was a rookie, I was with my family (kids in the car) and some punk kid passed us in a residential area and literaly ran us off the road. I called it in and the next day, one of the Sergeants pulled me outside and chewed my butt and said to not start calling things in when off duty. What the officers probably thought you were doing was out tyring to be a cop when you aren't quite there yet. Since you want to work there, I would just smile and drive on. If you had somewhere else to go, I would tell them to stick where the sun doesn't shine and when the place gets hit again, write a letter to the editor in your local paper and let the community know how you were told not to call in suspicious persons. Then see what they have to say
