  • HIGH PROFILE OFFICERS!

    Have any of you officers ever been in the spot light? Anyone been on cops, in the news? I was in two major motion pictures, "Tango & Cash" and "shawshank Redemption" I was just an extra in Tango & Cash, but I did have a speaking role in Shawshank Redemption. Both of these movies were made at the now closed Ohio State Reformatory.

    What role did you play in Shawshank?
    People have more fun than anybody.

        I was a badguy(extra) in Miami vice Sonny shot me with is Bren Ten. I had an uzi and fell backward off a dock. the scene took four hours. I also got to party with the crew and actors at a club in Pompano called Croketts(formerly Gee Willikers) I think Don Johnson was a part owner.
        I was going to do more work with them and needed to get my SAG card,but I was assigned to narcotics and my sgt. gave me the riot act and said "choose being a cop or choose something else whatever you do don't dick me around" ya gotta love a sgt like that.
        I was also a zombie in the movie dawn of the dead.
        It was filmed in the Monroeville Mall near Pittsburgh Pa.

          Our dept. was a topic on several 20/20 shows and dateline, etc. The Laurie Show homicide involving Lisa Michelle Lambert. Made her out to be the liar and murderer she is, fortunately.
          If there is a tourist season, why can't I shoot them???

                Cops rode with me for a while, unfortunately, a pretty slow period.

                That had one segment they really wanted to use........but we had to erase it

                  Been on TV a bit back in the UK always played the SWAT guy. Appeared and advised a bit on Michael Winners last film 'Parting Shots'. After I left the job and wrote my books I kept getting called up by the BBC and news channels everytime there was a Siege or Hostage incident. I even got to commentate for NBC on the Security implications surrounding 'Diana's' funeral. Glad to live over here in the US now after what's just happened the phone would be red hot!

                    Every now and then my picture makes it into the local "Bugle and Blab" - dressed in Review Order for a Remembrance Day parade, that sort of thing.

                    Most small town papers here do a "Meet the New Mountie" feature, putting your picture and bio after you get transferred in.

                    When I got here 8+ years ago (I hope to retire here and run for Mayor!) "Lois Lane" came by the Detachment to take my picture, along with that of our new car (when we switched from blue-with-front-white-doors to all-white-and-new-striping). So, how did it look? She was 30 feet back, with the sun rising behind me and the car, so all you see is the car with what looks like the old FBI-qualification-style shooting target by the fender, and the extent of the story was the caption "Here's Weyburn RCMP's new police car and Constable Broccolo".

                    But, hey, I also have starred in local amateur theatre!

                      The local fish-wrapper in my town puts an officers name in the paper almost every time one of us make an arrest. It's kinda stupid.

                      I'm pretty good at being invisible. I'll stay out of the spotlight if I can.

                        In my place the news that a new officer (especially Sub Inspectors and above) has taken charge catches on with the people like a wild fire. In many small town ships the name of the local SI (eq. Lt) is even known to kids !!! (99% of the cases, many people just know the name, and may not have personally met the officer). The news gets extra coverage if the officer has solved really tough cases, have been too strict with the traffic offenders, and also if he has had any open boxing events with the goons and ruffians.

                        Here in my place transfer across police districts is a common practise (we have one single force for the entire state).

                        Do they exist,any similar type of unofficial reporting of police postings, in the US or any part of the world??

                            I have been profiled several time by the media. I had a news crew follow me around all day while I looked for truants when out Truancy Center opend several years ago. Since Ive been in K9, I have had 2 stories done on me and my partner. Just recently I tried out for SWAT with three others, one of which was a female. The media did a big story on how tough it is to get on SWAT. They basically followed me and the other guy through the process. There were some great shots of me on the O course and on the range shooting. The female needed an IV after finishing the run and was DQ'd by the medical staff. The other guy made the team. I slipped off the dip bars, so I was DQ'd but was allowed to continue for the experience. (Had I not slipped, I would have made it) Imagine that, someone needing an IV after running 1 1/2 miles in 95 degree heat and 99% humidity. So goes my fame.

                              Made the front page in our local paper twice.

                              First, taking a witness statement at an MVA

                              Second, looking under the front of a transport truck that we had just seized.

                              Life as an Auxiliary Constable is pretty low key. Just how I like it

                              Oh yeah, I ended up marrying the news paper photographer that took those pictures.

                              The Corporal teased me about being "plugged in to local press"......
