    I agree if one is going to write about cops, they should understand their humor.
    I had a supervisor who would expect me to be at work up till noon on the day of MY funeral

    (I am not straying too far from the truth on that statement )
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      That’s one of the drawbacks working day watch.

            I’m surprised OP has not inquired about established procedures for reporting and verifying bereavement leave.

            OP forgot her password and has not been on here in weeks. Also, those procedures are not integral to my story, but I'd be happy to hear details. :-D

              Every place I worked at we had to use sick time or vacation time.

                When I was in field training my Uncle died. I asked for a day off to attend the funeral. My FTO was good with it. He did not ask for it but I brought a copy of the obituary and showed him.

                  We asked an officer to bring in an obit when it seemed like his grandma died for the third or fourth time.

                  I get it Just Joe. I hadn't earned anyone's trust in the first few weeks of field training. Had someone questioned it, it certainly would've been understandable. Fast forward to 2018, my second major loss in my family while a police, it shouldn't be questioned and it wasn't.

                    40 hours. However, only a heartless, pr*ck-b*stard is going to expect someone back to work, on day 6, who has lost a spouse or child. Other time like vacation, accumulated leave, sick time, would likely be granted. Some departments have catastrophic shared leave time, where we can donate unused hours to another employee with a crisis.

                    Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

                      My old state agency had 3 days for any "close" family members..........................that went out through a cousin (very liberal policy) In the 30 yrs I worked there I was NEVER questioned when I had a death in the family and told them I would be off. The leave time would come off sick leave and any "extra" off vacation

                      We had people who stretched the policy to get more time and some that were told to come back to work when they were ready

                      Best one was the person who's aunt died in California and he took the 3 days off to go fishing...........in Wisconsin .
