    Nah..sneak up on him and draw a mustache on his face.

    Seriously, though..WTF? This guy probably had some beef with the cops before and felt like this was pay back. Obviously the poor guy was exhausted.

    He should have gone to a firehouse. That's why you stay friendly with the firefighters!

    Well I would imagine that most career fields would have discipline tactics in place if you sleep on the job.

    I give mad props to that department.

    I was talking to a friend on the department yesterday.

    The guy that took the photo was NOT the one that sent it to the media/department. The exterminator came into the PD last week after this hit the media to apologize to the officer.......................

    His story is that he thought it "was funny" and took the photo--------------sent it to two people laughing.
    It got forwarded------------------------and forwarded=someone sent it to the media and the department.


    The department handled this in a very professional manner......................they still have not ID'ed the officer to the press, and have no plans to do so........................it is an internal discipline measure & Iowa is covered under a Peace Officer Bill of Rights law.

    Not gonna get into that, other than our preferred explosive was a string of black cats........on video whenever possible.


    I've had a few catnaps over the years after being in court all day or whatever and then trying to pull a night shift, working a double, etc. It happens. You just have to do it safely if possible, and not make a habit of it. We all had our holes that we crawled into from time to time.

The teacher then made a very loud noise while outside and the kid got up, grabbed his bag and started to leave the room thinking it was passing period. LOL.
    i did that except i actually slept through 3 periods and woke up to a bunch of younger sophmores and a different teacher staring at me. i slept everyday in that english class. i passed it with an A too =)

    I forgot about this one..

    I have had to wake up an officer that was working part time for me. He did not respond when I called him over the radio. He was sent home early and never asked to return. Many factors played into that decision though... it was his first time working so he should have been on point, his radio was turned on and on the highest volume possible, and he had an attitude when I told him he would need to stand outside of his car the rest of his shift.

    There is a local dept, (LSMO), around these parts that recognize that problem and have a room with a cot in it, (at least they did 10 yrs ago),....take a lunch and get a few zzz's
    You would think that would be more common place to assist with a problem so these little moments dont happen. Im sure the majority of the time, these problems are accidental...If the officer pictured had a pillow, teddy bear and blankie then I wouldnt have a problem with Mr. John "I pay Taxes!" Public, snapping a shot, but I doubt this was a planned event

    My department would throw me under the bus if that was me in the article.

    Knowing some of the officer safety issues posed to the sleeping officer I don't think I would just leave them sleeping. I would probably knock on the window and ask them if they were OK. Once they responded I would leave.
    probably blowing the horn from across the lot would be better

    I worked(temporarily) until my academy started. I woke up at 4:00 a.m. and started the shift in AZ summers at 5:00 a.m. and did not get home until 6:30 - 7:00 p.m.

    If you were going to take a shift nap, would it not be more advisable to sleep in the trunk? I mean most trunks these days come with the release handles. That way you can be all rested up to shoot perps in the legs or shoulder.
