 Me and my husband both work for the same department.  There was no nepotism rule there but it was kind of unspoken that it wouldn't be good to work on the same shift.  Then I got promoted to Sgt. and it was suggested that he not work for me.  It hasn't been bad at all.  There has even been a couple of occasion when we were really short handed that we have had to work on the same shift and it worked out fine.  Although being on the same shift would be great for family life, I agree with them not having us together because while you would like to think that you would follow the rules and training and not do something dumb to protect or retaliate when something happens to your spouse...you just never know when it comes down to it.


Problem is virtually solved now.  I work investigations and he is a night shift Sgt. so we're in different divisions.  Still, because we are a smaller department there is a chance we will still be there at the same time under extenuating circumstances and have to work together.  Really I'm just thankful they didn't make one of us transfer to another city or leave and find another job.

Our dept. just enacted a policy regarding this issue.  We have, let me count..., three married couples right now.  One set are admin & two sets 'on the road', on the same shift.  It has the potential to create some unique "challenges" for me as a shift supervisor, especially since I had both couples on my shift at one time.  I can probably 'attach' and e/m a copy of the policy if you're interested.

My husband and I are both LEO's.  He works for the city, I work for the state.  We have worked together on a few things but nothing major.  He works 1900 to 0700 and I workd swing shift, two weeks of days and two weeks of nights.  We get to have dinner together when I am on nights when we can.  We have a 2 year old son who is the light of our life.  We make it work.

My baby has turned into a real jack ass since becoming a LEO.  He believes he's a big stud now. Oh,well!

Are you a police officer too??  Were you not posting elsewhere about your boyfriend being a jerk?? Why do you remain with him?? This thread is for LE couples...i.e. husband / wife cops.......

I am not in law enforcment yet, But I am in a relationship with an LEO. It is the greatest thing I could ever ask for, yet the scariest as well. I know he goes out everyday putting his life on the line to help those who need it. He is a very brave person. Not a day goes by that I dont tell him I love him, I have to wake up everyday knowing theres a possible chance he wont be coming home, yet having the faith inside telling me he will. I just want to tell everyone who is dating/married to a LEO to always tell them how you feel, never go a day without telling them you love him/her. Anyday could be your last.

Me and my husband are both in L.E. I met him when I was in my academy. He is a sgt. and I am a detective. We work at different departments but we work within the same county. He is a Deputy for the County and I work for a city department within the county. We have been together for 3 years total (1 year married). Being a law enforcement couple definately has its ups and downs. Because we work in the same line of work we both have an understanding about the risks, the occasional long hours, shift work and working holidays, birthdays and other important events. It is difficult at times though because we have very similar stubbon personalities and we can often butt heads. I am also thinking its going to be difficult to have a family because of the shift work etc etc. I now work normal hours but he is working late nights.... not real condusive to a prospective family life. Sometimes its tough but it is someone who understands your days your thrills and your let downs. So it can be beneficial.....

Good for you two :) I'm a little worried at adding a baby to the mix but i've been contemplating it. It's good to know that people in the same situation out there are making it work! Thanks!

It is tough but you can do it!  I love my little guy and I could not imagine what my life would be like without him.  He is so much fun that all the work is so worth it.  My house may not be spic and span but usually sleep wins over housework.
