    Really?? 21 years now and I've been doing it all wrong. I've been needlessly kind, always been helpful to the public, mentored those that I could, and made many life-long friends.

    Certainly we have our share of A-holes, as any employer may have, but please do not paint all 8,000 of us with such a broad stroke of your cynical brush.

    I understand what you are trying to say to an extent, and it may be scemantics, but that idea is a common misperception. Take this post with a grain of salt, as I'm not trying to belittle you or the publilc. I respect the way most (including you) express your opinion in here, and although you and I may not see eye to eye, I don't think you are a troll (for the most part. ).

    Ok... enough nicey nicey's.

    LEO's don't work for the public. We serve the public interest at large, but we don't work for the public. We have Chiefs/Sheriffs/Marshalls and their designees that tell us what to do and how to do it. They and/or their designee hire us and fire us. We work for them.

    Chiefs/Sheriffs/Marshalls are either elected or appointed: Those appointed have bosses, which would be a mayor or governor of sorts, which curtail to the public interest and political pressure to keep their careers in tact. Those appointed may be fired on the needs of those that appoint them.

    Elected heads of LEO agencies don't really have bosses. They are elected like any other political incumbent, and depending on how popular or not they are dictates how much they need to bend to the ebb and flow of local public opinion. Take for example the popular Sheriff of my local county agency. He may have a few bad days here and there, but the guy is popular enough that when the brown stuff hits the fan, he usually rides it out fairly well. He hasn't had a decent challenger to his seat in my 11 years of service.

    Yes, the public pays for LEO pay, which is appreciated. The public also pays for roads and a lot of other things. A member of the public has about as much of a chance of giving me an order and getting it followed as they have ordering the yellow divider lines on the pavement to do something. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to look out for you anyways. My brothers and sisters and I understand - although we HATE IT - that we may die to protect you and your family from harm. I'll just go home and complain to my wife about you when it's all said and done.

    Here is a little advice in return.
    Customer service is part of LE. Treat people the way you would like your family to be treated.

    Just wanted to get that off my shoulders.
    The customer of the police is the public that they work for who pay thier salaries.

    The people who most likely are being contacted by police are the job.

    So which were you a customer or a job?

    Reading the guys posts, its probably about the PSO stuff he talked about in "Ask a Cop," and even then, he had 2 different posts about what Im guessing were the same incident, and the story was completely different both times. Smells like a troll to me.

    Heh, reminds me of a few weeks ago when some idiot called our street crimes supervisor a "stupid rookie". The guy then asked for a supervisor... and shut up real quick when said "stupid rookie" told him what was what.
