The kind I am talking about will : milk paperwork for an arrest that most guys finish while on the road. Initiate vehicle stops while everyone is busy on calls, leaving their districts unmanned. I'm curious if this is a common thing with anyone else.

I'm wondering if anyone has anyone similar to this type of person.

There's at least one in almost every department. Fact of life, lazy usually tries to coast on the tail end of hard work.

One or two come to mind. We call them station rats, always at the station doing "paperwork" but never on the road to handle a complaint. How about the guys that are the closest car to a complaint and the back up car arrives first?

Oh yeah, we have a guy who will circle the block a few times and let a back up unit respond first to their HOT calls.

Station rats...I like that. Yeah have one like that. Works 4-12. gets an arrest at 6 or 7 and is tied up the rest of the night on something simple!

Doesn't the laziness get addressed by superiors after some time? Do these lazies keep their jobs?? I am curious how it's handled. No doubt these people show up in every line of work...

Had one told him once he spent more time in the station than I did, and I have an office here. Hung enough paper on him he left. Kept writting him up ofr being incompendent. un able to work without constant direct supervision. Wrote on his eval once...... Set gaol at the bare minimum and occassionally acheives them, Rarely stands out in his work group offten works alone...... Now that was funny watching him read that............

This guy not only "buddy f-cks" us on many occasions, but he has received more formal citizen complaints then we can count. I myself have told him to leave some of my calls because he was starting trouble or getting people all bent out of shape after I just calmed them down. I'm pretty sure he has been talked to by supervisors and even by some of us, but it has not even scratched the surface of his skull.

Yeah those guys like to say they are doing "sgt stuff". Usually that "guy" is the one that does not know how to keep his mouth shut and carries a knife for everyones back, that is why admin doesn't get rid of him.
