  • Dating with in the Dept.

    Im not doing it, but know quite a few guys and gals in other depts who are. I thought it was "bad for business" and kinda fell under the category of "dont Sh*t where u eat"....i guess when feelings develop for someone, its tough to say no. Thoughts, experiences?

    What happens when Michele and greg start dating and it gets serious. Then they have a fight and now they have to back each other up if they work the same shift. It's hard to be professional when the "customer" can see through the tension. It's also difficult when the person of interest starts treating your partner with disrespect. The fact that your partner is also your lover or wife can escalate things. The other downside is you spend a lot of time with your significant other. you need time away.

      VERY bad idea. I've seen most, if not all, work-related flings end poorly.

        Ive seen it in larger departments (IE Philly). Generally one of the parties gets transferred to another district so the issues of back-up etc do not happen.

              Did that at AMR in my younger years....... Learned that it is not a wise thing to do ............ On the other token if its for purely physical attachments and no emotional strings...... I have seen that work out much better

              In the medic world, working on different units in different areas helps the separation and keeps the peace. I imagine that in the bigger departments that would hold true as well.

                I have seen officers draw down on each other due to work-related romantic entaglements...

                  Never fish at the company dock!

                  That was sage advice that my dad gave me decades ago.....and I have found that he was right on the mark. There are plenty of fish in the sea, so don't bait your hook where you work.

                    There's no booty worth damaging your duty!

                    Dated a girl I worked with about 3 years ago in a non-leo job.
                    Sucked, sucked, sucked. Work was awkward and tense after that, people in our job took sides and split the job, just a crappy situation.

                            I started dating my husband while we worked at the same agency. Thankfully he left and went to another one. I wouldn't want to work around my spouse, regardless of the job. We end up overlapping at some things, but not all that often.

                            I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                              We have a husband and wife who are both patrol officers on different shifts. Our department uses a 12 hour rotating shift schedule so whenever one comes into work, the other one is leaving and they both have the same days off. There has yet to be a single issue.
