Why I Like the Dark

531 32
Why I like the dark.

I have been stuck on days, but get to come out a few hours early sometimes.

1. It is the criminals natural hunting ground.
2. My not-so-low-profile lightbar turns out to be a no-profile lightbar.
3. Vehicle lighting regulations are easier to enforce.
4. After dark EVERYONE is suspicious.
5. People don't realize how far (or fast) light travels in a dark county.
6. I don't have to wear a clean or pressed uniform (joke).
7. I can get places without being seen.
8. Bathroom opportunities are nearly endless.
9. Gunshots look really cool.
10. The brass is long asleep.
11. ...

Feel free to contribute.
I go to midnights next month!!!

Didn't have ot peek in windows where I worked, the folks were to cheap to get a motel room and would park and spark on side roads. any night of the week you could see two or three naked women if you wanted to check out the cars.

I really like #10. The Real reason that we all like nights. You dont have to hide or stay away from the office.

I do remember that was how I ended up going to Vernon on a 96 transport. Walking from the patrol room to dispatch to get a CCH and all of a sudden, "Hey since your not doing anything go pick this guy up and take him to Vernon. Here is the Commitment.":shocked::dunno:

There are a lot less people out, so the chances of the ever popular "Hey ocifer can I axe you a question?" is greatly reduced. The night diff doesnt hurt either.

I like the night differential and I'm a night owl. I work in a prison, so getting asked questions is still there, when they're not asleep. I don't deal with nearly as much brass. When I do overtime, it's as far away from the office as possible, during the day.

14. No tourists asking "Officer, How do I find my own ass? I seem to be lost."

Seriously though, do the tourist-type ever look at a dang map?
+100000000000000

The only question I have ever gotten at night was some jerkoff who couldn't sleep decided to do his laundry, stopped me and asked where the nearest coin laundry was. :faint:

Night differential? Ah yes, I have heard rumors of such a thing on the internet. One can only surmise the happiness such a benefit would bring.

Night differential is like a Bigfoot or Chubacabra around here. We've heard of such things, but no one has yet to see one.

Night Diff is a foriegn concept here. I like nights myself. No Brass and very few "cold" reports. Besides anyday you have to get up before noon is a bad day.
