I've actually had an individual approach me while on duty in full uniform and equiptment and ask my partner and I if I was a real police officer or if the city was pulling a prank. I'm sure we've all been told we look young but come on...

Lol, I've had that happen to me also. I was about to start a tour and had someone ask "excuse me officer how do I get to the nearest police station from here" while standing right infront of the station house.

While it doesn't qualify as a question. I was called to a "domestic disturbance" call. The female called saying she was having trouble with her kids. Upon arrival, she asked me to tell her two kids to "go to sleep" because they "wouldn't listen to her".

My favorite phone call:

caller: "Hello sir, my cousin entered the United States illegally two weeks ago..."

me: "I understand, do you want us to come pick him up?"

caller: "Oh...no...I was wondering if you could find him and bring him to my house?"

me: "Ok...do you have any other illegal family members living with you?"

caller: "Yes, my aunt and uncle."

me: "I see, what's your address...I'd like to bring you a form to fill out so we can bring your cousin home."

Long story short, I got the address and arrested everyone. I love stupid people.

Nope. I looked at her, then at the two future felons of America, and left. I filed the incident under the heading of "crap that isn't my problem".

911 call dispatch has us respond to an house cause the line goes dead she can still hear the tv on and moaning when we arrive there is a gentleman sitting in a recliner phone on the floor STONED out of his mind. When we asked if he was alright he asked if "we could please give him the remote to the tv and his bag of chips?" Arrestted for making non emergency 911 calls... of course in the back of our minds was the easiest call ever :)

Pulled a girl over one night. Now the patrol cars we had were in the classic black and white "tipped" scheme, and when you turned on all the lights it looked like a pissed off x-mas tree. Walk up to her car, identify myself, got her DL and insurance. When I came back up and told her all about the citation that she was getting she asks...."now what happens if I don't pay this?" I couldn't resist, I told her "ma'am, if you really want to find out, don't contact the court by the date on the citation". I just walked back to my car after that.

As a civilian employee for the Rochester Police Department I was walking out of the Building with a large clearly seen sign saying the City of Rochester Public Safety Building. There were several marked police cars in front. A young man approached me and said that he was supposed to be at a training for those wanting to be a Police Officer for the Rochester Police and it was supposed to be at the Rochester Public Safety Building, did I know if this was the right building? When I told him ues, he said "thanks, I hope I get the job". I didn''t tell I him I was thinking the exact opposite.

Of course then there was a recruit on FTO (Field Training Officer) status for the Rochester Police Department ask me what RPD stood for...he never made it past the FTO stage.

Had a drunk driver call and say that he was being followed by a brown car and wanted to know if we could assist him in getting the vehicle off his butt. Needless to say the brown car was a deputy from our department in his marked cruiser. The driver blew a .24 then asked if he was going to jail.

After conducting a traffic stop on a vehicle, which had failed to pull over for approximately one mile, the female teenage driver asked: 'Excuse me, but was your car making a 'sound'? The reply: 'Yes ma'am, that is commonly referred to as a SIREN. They are used when vehicles fail to immediately pull to the right and stop.'

Another one: 'Excuse me, but do you know that your gun is cocked? 'Yes ma'am, it's a 1911.'
