So I'm a probationary patrolman for my dept. My probation ends in October which is a little over a month away. Ive not had any problems with senior officers since I started until yesterday. A call came in just out of my area for a threatening phone call, the wife was at a local bar when her husband calls and threatens to go over there and kill her and the security guard. Two senior officers get dispatched and i disregard the backup and start heading enroute. I just so happen to get there first and let dispatch know Im getting off, right at that moment the senior officer gets there and advises she is off. We both approach the complainant at the same time and the complainant goes right up to me and starts explaining the whole story to me. Im hearing her out and she begins telling me about previous incidents that don't have any significance as to why we are here now. I ask her "I understand ma'am but why are we here now?" At this point the senior officer shoots a glance my way which I return, we make eye contact for maybe 2 seconds and she then looks back at the complainant. Awkward...at this point she finishes her story and Im about to ask her if she wishes to file a report and press charges and possibly stay somewhere else for the night, when the senior officer butts in looks at me and says: "So do you have anything else to add?" I reply "What do you mean?" she replies "Well are you going to interview her? Ask questions? Do you even know what to do?" I reply "Im going to ask if she wants to press charges and have some place to stay for the night." She then looks at the complainant and says "Ok thats what i'm trying to get at, I'll be conducting the interview from here on out and you can direct all questions to me, he is just my backup." At this point I'm obviously fuming and really want to tell her off but I hold my tongue and keep my composure for the remainder of the call which she ended up taking. After the call was finished she didn't even say a word to me and went right back to her car and took off. I'm not sure if I did anything wrong here, maybe some of you senior guys can help me out? Was she upset because complainant talked to the backup rookie when she was primary? Was it because I was handling the call differently than her? She ended up going the same route I was going to take anyway so I'm stumped. Any advice guys? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
