Just curious what our community members do in their field.


As for me, I'm in patrol.  I supervise about 30+ employees in my district and hit about 21 different sites between two and five times a night.

My specialty is Housing and Campus safety including but not limited to:


1) Bullsh*t


2) The harrassment of random crackheads


3) The tasing of hippies


4) Bullsh*t


5) Deploying OC at hippies


6) Anything and Everything that involves hippies


7) Bullsh*tting with bored LEO's


8) Trying to avoid naked people


9) Slow motion foot pursuits of vandals and thieves (while listening to Chariots of Fire on our duty MP3 players)


10) Getting paid for all that hard flashlight jockying and key jangling.


Yes, we get a bonus for every crackhead we beat up, and every hippy we tase/spray. That bonus goes down for every raccoon, squirrel, chipmunk, or possum that gets maced or tased though, so we usually end up with nada. And we learned that shaving cats to look like poodles is frowned upon in some circles. (SEO shrugs)

well, my specialty working the hospital beats....alas currently I'm stuck in a really boring job sitting in front of several computer consoles monitoring alarms and camera systems for a half dozen sites across the US & another half dozen around the globe.... so I get to call folks in India all night long to tell them about alarms and it doesn't matter what kind of alarm I tell them about.... door, card reader. fire, etc they all give the EXACT same answer "Ok I check the door."  on the plus side I do get paid really well for it.

And have you ever had to pull that gun with the flashlight jamed up behind it, how do you supervise others when you can't properly set up your own pistol belt?


Pain is weakness leaving the body.

Obstacles are what we see when we take our eyes off the goal.

That's not my pistol belt in the picture.  It's just an avatar.  I use a Blackhawk CQC level II holster with SERPA trigger lock.  And my pistol is the only piece of equipment on my right side.

The pistol or the holster was never in question. The question was about your magzine holster and why it opens to the back instead of the front....



Wrong thread, CBone.  You're thinking about the guy in the uniform thread.

Yea, deleted the post, sorry about that....

Nope, its free. Do you have T.A.C.T. training at your hospital? Its something that Mercy Hospital made us go through. I call it Kumbia Training because it is SO lame. I guess its mostly for combative mental patients, but we were trained to whoop their asses without hurting them. I could hear the bongos and ukeleles.

Current specialty:  monitoring and guiding both my patrol and gate officers to keep them from slacking off and getting hurt. 


Previous specialty:  Traffic control and spotting and correcting vehicle violations (speed, tags, inspections, defective equipment, and such.....can't seem to turn that off now)

Besides making sure the building doesn't blow away in the latest string of Tornado's out here and floats away in the floods the midwest is suffering under, I do my part for gravity by holding as many chairs down as possible.


Seriously, patrol, especially when employees are in the building. Computer programmers are not very healthy and I need to keep up on my CPR and AED certifications.


Surfing PL is also in the job description, I think. Maybe it is the Post Orders.

I'm thinking about adding an addendum to require PL on all our computers, for officer safety, of course.

That's not a bad idea, makes a 16 hour double go by faster.....


I think I need more chairs to hold down though.....

Amen to that, especially when the second half of that double is mid to 8.
