The most of the books I'm studying out of in school tells me that Police only make about 1 or 2 Felony arrest with in a 2 or 3 month period on average. Is it true?

And if you make more do tell

Thank All for the help

It depends on the officer. I know officers at my department that have only made one or two felony arrests in the last year, some have made none. Some of the more active officers can make three to four a month, depending on the seriousness of the felony, maybe even more. There are months that every DUI I driver I find has had a previous DUI, and I may get 10 felony DUIS in a short time. Some assaults are felonies, possession of personal use marijuanna is a felony if you have a previous, in Oklahoma, petit larceny is a felony if you have a previous, so all you really have to do is be active and get out there and find it instead of waiting for the calls to come to you.

It also depends on where you are. Some agencies refer most felony arrests to detectives. This is more common in the Northeast (this is just a generality). Some jurisdictions are so busy that officers/deputies are making arrests of a felony nature every few nights. And of course, in some areas, it may be easier to "qualify" for a felony activity and get arrested then other depending on how the state's laws are written.

o ok I get it now. I just needed to know that because the book is not going to really tell you every thing.

Thank you for the help

I would say ON AVERAGE this is true for a Patrol Officer, but like the above mentioned, depends on the motivation and area worked of the individual officer. You would probably find a high felony arrest officer located in a specialized unit.......CID (some only deal in felonies), Narcotics, Traffic/Interdiction and SWAT

It depends on:
1) The Officer
2) The type of area you work

I know guys that make 30 to 40 a years and guys that make 2 or 3 a year.

WERE I COME FROM, MOST OF THE OFFICERS HERE PULL FELONY ARRESTS A FEW TIMES A MONTH. I LIVE IN ORANGE COUNTY SO WE HAVE ALOT OF SKINHEAD GANGS AND SUCH SO THERE ARE ALOT OF PRIORS, AND WERE I PLAN TO WORK "LAPD" THERE ARE ALOT OF FELONY ARRESTS GOING ON DAILY. DUE TO THE HIGH CRIME RATES. BUT ALL IN ALL LIKE SAID ABOVE, IT ALL DEPENDS ON LOCATION AND ACTIVE OFFICERS

Thank you again all. I take that my book cant talk for every unit then.

And with all that being said, if you make like 13 felony arrest in a month do you get a award for an out standing job (or is that just on movies) My father has alot but it's only for big missions he did in his unit and the other bull awards they give to cops for duty ( I would take them all lol)

I think another question is: Are you talking about warrant arrests or "on view" arrests?

I can make several felony warrant arrests in one shift. The number will obviously go down if I'm out looking for felony activity. Meth is a huge problem where I am, and it's not uncommon to make at least one arrest per shift off a traffic stop due to possession of narcotics.

I average at least 2 felony arrests a month. These are a bit different than a normal "felony" arrest (if that makes sense) As far as a "Felony Car Stop" (ie: for a Stolen Vehicle, a high speed pursuit or an in-progess felony crime) I have only had 2 of those in my career.

As for the arrest being a Felony after I have put them in custody and transported to the jail to book them, I average many of those a month. Mostly stemming from a 3rd or more DUI, etc. or for Felony assault/battery on a Peace Officer. (which unfortunately seems to happen a lot with me)

Good job to all. I hope that I can become a star one day too. I bet that the same people you arrest get out of jail and do the samething.

Hey guys,
Something happened to me and I need some advice on where I can get the facts of law regarding the accident.
I was traveling north on a clear strait highway. This is a passing zone. A pick-up truck pulling a Grain Truck with a fifty foot tow rope pulled out in front of me. I attempted to slow my drive then it seemed as if the vehicles weren't even trying to accelerate. I reached the point on the brake pedal that you know if you try to force any more pressure on the pedal you are going to begin to skid. Unknowing what had happened at the time is the grain truck had no battery on it so there was no way they could indicate to me what was going on. If We would have struck this Grain truck in the rear end at 55mph it would have without question killed all of us in my pickup. So I made a split decision to pass on the left due to culverts on the right. I got about half way even with the grain hauler and notice the pickup which was towing him has already started to make a left turn. I then again applied pressure to the brakes and locked them up and began a skid. I slipped in between the vehicles, but the grain hauler drug its front end all down the side of my truck, knocked me in a four foot deep ditch then struck me in the rear-end due to the fact that there were no brakes on the truck. I need some opinions guys did I make the wrong decision anytime during this accident? If so What did I do wrong? I was forced to pass and even if i wasnt it was a passing zone and he indicated absolutely no stopping or left turn. this is a fact due to the vehicle was not running and had no battery. The insurance company says it is over fifty percent my fault so they will not pay. They received and improper towing violation. I received no Moving Violation. Can anyone give me any information on a website or something that I can pass to my lawyer to help my case, or just give me your opinion if i was in the wrong please tell me.

Kindest Regards,
Michael A. Barrow
