All current/past explorers encouraged to add their own. Also, let me clear this up right away: yes, I'm bored.



  • Anytime anybody around you does anything, 'the cop' gets brought up.

  • If anyone ever sees you with a donut, or similar pastry, you'll never hear the end of it.

  • You tirelessy search for any possible loopholes in Federal, State, County, and even City laws and ordanances to find a way to install blue lights on your POV, as well as obtain LE only products.

  • You occaisionally refer to ten and eleven codes when engaging in casual conversations, often getting those looks from your peers.

  • You go out with friends with your 5.11 Tactical Operator Pant's cargo pockets loaded down, while your friends are wearing skinny jeans and flat-billed hats.

  • You are constantly watching people's hands, also getting those looks from people.

  • You instantly knew that the term POV meant 'Personally Owned Vehicle'.

  • You've driven to the other end of the mall's parking garage to see who's in that marked unit.

  • You watch any LE drama on TV and point out all the errors, sometimes getting kicked out of the room.

  • You HATE it when people get within three feet of you, even if it's something important.

  • You roll your eyes when your peers try to explain laws.

  • A teacher asks you a question and you respond "Please refer all questions to my-- oh, I mean..."

- Your use of the word "Copy" instead of "Okay" gets on your friends' nerves. 


- When  you hear from someone you haven't seen in a while, it always starts with "So I was pulled over....." or "I got this ticket....."


That's all I've got for now! I was a Police Explorer for 4 years and now I'm the Advisor for the Post! Good luck in  your careers, and remember not to take this job too seriously all the time!

*Your friends ask you for legal advice about a party they were busted at...and know exactly what to say.


*You watch SWAT, Super Troopers, and Reno 911 and quote them constantly with your explorer buddies.


*When your friends plan parties, mal runs, and movies for the weekend, you plan gun shows, going to the range, and ride-alongs.


*Non-explorer friends don't invite you to events because they think you'll turn them in (or that could be just me because my parents were also cops).

  • You are constantly called Officer or Deputy by your parents because they think its funny.

  • When people constantly ask you if you are an actual deputy, or if you can arrest people.

  • You are constantly watching your back when you are in your uniform in public.

  • Your friends are afraid to talk about things that they did that was illegal in fear you might turn them in.

  • You goto the same school as some of superiors, and you still refer to them as Lt., Sgt., Major, etc.

I had forgotten one


*You almost get into trouble in class when your teacher discusses how he thinks cops are out to get everybody, and you defend the cops actions.


I've never seen a teacher get so irritated with me.

- When driving you look at everyone's plates trying to see who is expired and who isn't.


- You look at license plates and recite them to yourself using phonetics.


 


That's all I've got for now, I'm sure more will pop up soon.

- when driving you look at inspection stickers to see if they are out of date.


-You enjoy listening to your cities local police scanner and people look at you a little odd.


"better yet you understand your local police scanner and others don't."
