  • Your first time....

    Do you remember the pounding of your heart in your ears?

    Do you remember the lump in your throat?

    Do you remember trying to speak and your words coming out wrong?

    Do you remember thinking 'I hope I get this right!'?

    Do you remember shaking like a leaf afterwards?

    What a RUSH!

    Do you remember your first 'CODE 3' call?

    Gotcha!!!

    I do, actually the first one I ever went to in ANY capacity. I was an Explorer, it was SLOW, about 9:45pm on a 2nd shift, alert tones go out, and we get the "shots fired on A***** Dr." (HIGH gang/drug/crime area). Of course, we find nothing and make no arrests, but it was COOOOOOOOL AS HE!! anyways!!
    Nobody ever wants to have to fight, but its a darn good idea for someone to know how.

        I remember my first code run both as a passenger and as a driver. Neither were that big of a deal for me except that the first one as a passenger ended in a felony stop.

        The one that really shook me up was the first code run I made after being involved in an on duty wreck while running code.

        I don't really remember the call, but I ended up not having to continue response at code. I was shaking like crazy when I stopped the car. I didn't realize how much the wreck had affected me when it happened.

        After that one time though running code hasn't bothered me a bit.

          Oooohhhhhh yes.....

          It was a pursuit, (I was the passanger of course since the officer I was riding with would not let me drive). It was downtown Louisville, a fella was pulled over in Indiana for DUI, when he got out of the car, he struck the Indiana State Trooper and took off to Kentucky, (right across the bridge).

          When the call came across the radio, they said he was on Saint Catherine, (going the wrong way!!!) We were on Saint Catherine for another stop. We hopped into the car and took off, for a while we were right behind the guy, it was very exciting, after what seemed like forever, the guy turned at a dead end and all of these Indiana and LPD officers were on him in seconds flat (after the guy jumped out of his car and tried to take off...(heh I stayed in the crusier).

          (This was my very first ride along, they say ya never forget your first... )

            Yes I do it was a robbery in progress and we were sitting at a red light in an intersection and the call came out. They had just robbed a donut shop. We were staring at it and heard a loud blast. They had shot out the front window with a shot gun. It was far out on the out edge of New Orleans. There was no backup because we were the only car that far out on the highway. My partner started shooting and that was the first time I ever had someone shoot back at us. I was just a rookie. We chased them to the Mississippi line and they told us to back off. It was about a 20 minute chase. They killed all three of them in a road block on the Mississippi line. The Mississippi Highway Patrol. It was quite an experience. That's when I started to feel like a real policeman and really realized the job was real.

                    Considering what YOU are driving shooter. . .

                    I just don't remember what the call (or circumstance) was. . . And it's been bugging me ever since I first saw this thread!

                    BUT I SURE DO REMEMBER MY FIRST PURSUIT! It was after a jail break. I was NOT driving, and we were in the deputies personal car, I THINK it was a '56 Chrysler. He had NO radio in the car and the only "emergency equipment" was a red light on the dash. AND, the BG GOT AWAY! He was picked up later.

                    I was in LE in Colorado for a short time when I was quite young. I'm not real sure that my first actual code 3 run was not in an ambulance. Just don't remember it, so it must not have been anything real major. . .

                      The first one was Code 3 cover for deputies at a loud party that broke out in fights. My FTO gave me a great eval for "Driving - Stress Conditions" for that shift.

                      Then on a car stop a bit after that call, he wrote in the eval he wrote that I did a "good job of defensive driving while holding an ice cream bar" after the violator nearly hit us, prompting the stop.

                        Hey...don't mess with another guy's 'hooptie'!

                        My first CODE 3 call was to a bar fight of all things. Ever handcuffed a 1-armed guy? Being a rookie, it stumped(pun intended) me for a few minutes....
