A little girl thanking me for putting her daddy in jail. Her dad kidnapped her mother and her other sister at gun point. He took them across state lines and raped hte mother in front of their daughters. I caught them in a motel in west texas and arrested him. He was planning on taking them to mexico and killing the mother. That was the best moment in my career.

Hearing the words "Shots fired, one hit, officer down...." come across the radio. It puts a nauseous feeling in the pit of your stomach that you will NEVER forget. And then the county (as well as surrounding counties) are all cleared to help him. You are drivig down the highway topping out the crown vic pissed because it wont go faster than 140 and you cant get to him fast enough.....Thank God that he is ok...was shot 2x... in the leg and shoulder. We also got the man and woman who did it....still in jail awaiting trial. But there is still nothing like that....something you will never forget.

My first day on duty as a dispatcher, i got a phone call from a 75 YOA female....she wanted us to assist her in a welfare check on her middle aged son. (40-something)....anyway, upon arrival at the son's house, our deputy calls and says..."contact the coroner".....the man had been dead for around two days. it was sad....but, due to the circumstances, it was the most memorable call i had ever dispatched , this is why:
when my deputy found the mans body...he was dressed in pink lingere, handcuffed to his headboard, surrounded by porn and toys....with a neuce around his neck. (Autosexual Asphixiation). ....In the course of the man trying to reach his pleasure peak...he had killed his self.
later at the office, we joked about how it was one hell of a way to go out...."he didn't know weather he was goin or comin' "
......I dont know why i poke fun at the situation....but dang! i will never forget my first day at work.

3 years ago I chased a 15 year old down an alley after he tried to get into a 24 hour store with a large hunting knife in his hand. The clerk and a customer held the door closed and he took off. We gave chase. He ambushed me in an alley and I was stabbed in the neck. I was able to shoot him 2 times. Once in the arm and the other in the chest. My partner arrived and put two more shots in him. The 15 year old boy died. I lived. What I remember most is being told the suspect was only 15 years old. I was at the hospital being worked on. I knew I chased a large white male. 5'10 and about 180 lbs. I would have swore he was an adult due to his size. I had a 13 year old daughter at home, it bothered me some one so young was capable of of such callous acts and that he had to die so young.

Remember this it is you or them. That 15 yoa boy didn't care about you. You have a family and you have to go home.

Teenagers are a deadly breed to deal with now a days. I get on dispatch went they only send one car to a juvenile problem. They simply are acting with out a conscience.

tell me about it. I almost shot a teenager that thought that pulling out a toy gun on an officer was fun.

NAPD262 I remember that day. I wasn't working for the county ( I am now ) yet but my hubby was on the scene for the State Police. Who knows why these teens do what they do. Case in point Frank... Seems like almost every call anymore is having to be a 2 car dispatch.

I would have to say the 1st time a weapon was pulled on me (A nutball with a knife that was across the room full of furniture -He dropped it when He saw my G21 pointed at his chest) ... the first really "ripe" dead body (no way you can get that sight or smell gone)... 1st occupied stolen car/pursuit.... just too many to list I guess. -I can't even come close to NARCO's response though. Awesome hook -

Right on NYPD. That is a good day. To this day I remember this and will still make me cry. I was a young officer, you know nothing can stop us. :-) I got sent to a baby not breathing call. Well turns out the baby was a day old looks like mom fell asleep and may have accidently smothered the baby. It was clear that the baby had passed, I started CPR. I think the hardest thing was the young officer next to me, who had young children. He kept saying come on little buddy, come on. Not to mention the LT in my ear saying I know, but just keep going. You know there is nothing that effects us more then kids. Stay Safe.

NAPD, To your earlier post, I was taught in training never draw your weapon unless you are going to go for the kill. I guess I have a lot to learn from this,

Drawing your weapon is merely a 'threat' of force. Big difference from 'use of force.'

Not really exciting, but about seven years ago I was working swing shift ( 1600hrs to 2400hrs ) and a little 9 year old girl had locked herself in a pair of old rusty handcuffs. I got a call for a citizens assist and upon my arrival I walk up to the front door and this little girls hands were pale from loss of circulation from the cuffs. The mom said the cuffs had been on since after school and it was around 8pm when they called us. I was able to get the cuffs off and got her hands back to normal then went back to work. About a year ago I got a big thank you card with some candy from an admirer. I had no clue until she came to the station and reminded me of the incident. Now she is 16 and wants to be a police officer. You just never know what kind of impact you will have on someones life by doing something that simple.
