  • Percentages & LE

    Some say that law enforcement is 90% boredom and 10% all hell breaking out. How would you break your job down into percentages?

    Mine is broken down like this...

    100% Crap

    I'm not in law enforcement, but I'll answer anyway.

    I work in Emergency Medical Services and I would say that 80% is boring/routine and 20% is all hell breaking loose. We have a lot of "frequent flyers" (i.e. people who call 911 when they have gas or a hangnail) and they bore me to tears. Then there are other times when there's a code blue or a bad wreck or some other accident and things heat up a bit.

    Personally, I love it when hell breaks loose. That's when I'm at my best.  -

      Too many intangibles. It would constantly change depending on day of week, shift, section, etc. In my job today it would be 60% active & 40% bored. Last week would have run a little more to the bored side.

        Some days are so boring they seem like they will never end. Then there are days that are so busy that I don't have time for a 100. I look kind of yellow at the end of those days.

        I actually prefer the busy days. The day seems to go by a whole lot faster.
