The ones posted on the wall now are pretty good....

..."caller says someone's penis got popped off" out of a 911 hang up. =)

... "piles sounds good... piles and piles of cookies!" That turned out to be an mdt message that was accidentally added to the call. lol.

... from a traffic complaint... "driver is legally blonde..." hahahha Callscreen meant to say blind.

And many times, I've left the "r" out of "shirt" when typing in a suspect description.

How about you guys?

One note I put in a call about a prostitue soliciting the complainant was: W/F BLO W/ B/M which is supposed to mean a white female blonde with a black male. Suffice to say my co-workers had a nice laugh at my expense.

When I was a young rookie back in the late 50s, I was in a cruiser with a old crusty veteran. It was an early Sunday afternoon, people still on streets going home from Church. We got a call about a cat in a tree. When we arrived there already was a small crowd including children. My partner borrowed an extension ladder and a rope and sent me up into the tree. the higher I went the higher the cat went until he was finally near the top which was probably 40 feet. My partner told me to get the rope near the top and start shaking it. He said that cat's have nine lives and that he would jump and be OK. I did so and he did so. When he hit the street he took about five steps and fell over dead. We placed the carcass in the trunk and left the scene. My partner took the mike and called the station. Car 5, this cat committed suicide. From then on, I took note and I never ever saw a cat skeleton in a tree.

I sometimes let my fingers get away from me, and instead of typing "out at county jail".......it comes out "out at ocunty jail".

One morning, years back I had the Chief come see me in dispatch... he patted me on the back and told me normally my call notes on CAD entries are very informative, but this was a little extreme... so could we please make a correction on this one....... he hands me a hard copy and I read my entry: "R/P said she has obs on a suspicious subj desc as m/w seen peeing into vehicles in the area of.....yada, yada". Whooops, left out the "r" there. Oh well.... it was good for a laugh.


You may know where you are and what you're doing...
God may know where you are and what you're doing...
But if your dispatcher doesn't know where you are and what you are doing, then I hope you and God are on very good terms!!

We had a dispatcher type into a call screen regarding a death investigation that there was "fowl play" suspected.  We started to flap our arms whenever a detective came in asking about the call.

Just for the heck of it and to lighten the mood in the room, I will occaionally *on accident* transpose or mis-spell a word or too.... examples... Darking bogs instead of barking dogs. The radio operator, if not paying attention, dispatches it just that way too. My favorite lately is on reckless driver or DUI complaints...instead of swerving and weaving, it goes in as Sweaving and werving.  Harmless pranks that help increase the levity in the room. After almost 21 yrs, ya just cant help it

I have left the "r" out of shirt many times and to no avail . .. the dispatcher reads it off without a pre-read. . . we start to giggling and all hell breaks loose. . . . its the times that laughter is the best break you can get. So keep giggling . .  it helps.

This story took place only over the radio....I was getting ready to laeve for the day and my relief and i heard one officer (who we still to this day can't figure out who it was) told our Cherokee Village Officer about a funeral that was taking place a said location and if he got report of gun fire (in Cherokee Village its acutally illegal to fire your weapon) it would be at the funeral (we're assuming he was  former military) my relief and a dear friend gets on the radio and said "Central's 10-4 direct, and where did you say that Firing Squad's going to be?" As she said it I LOST it, couldn't stop laughing and then she realized what she had done and when the officer responded, no one could 10-4, we were all laughing too hard

This is an NCIC Admin Message thing:  My agency is actually called "North Palm Beach Department of Public Safety".  One of our dispatchers, in a rush, put "North Palm Beach Department of Pubic Safety".  I couldn't stop laughing after that....and that's also why I abbreviate it to North Palm Beach DPS

I think it's funny when you see a teletype from another agency and the tty operator is abbreviating and they say at the end of their message, "Thanks for the ass." (instead of assistance).

One of my co-workers pulled up on a suspicious vehicle in a closed park one night... he cancelled the call on CAD w/ "coitus interruptus."


Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

Anybody ever put your detective/officer out on a “FU” call instead of a “follow up” call??? Yep, done that a few times! But yet you think that sometimes it kinda fits what he's doing.....

I once got my wrist slapped for referring to the S&B Stop 'n Shop as the S&B Stop 'n ROB....


 


When a deputy checks on for special assignment I (and others) have always logged it as Spec Ass....


But with this new system it displays the remarks on the screen.....on the MDT"S (weve never had CAD interfaced on the MDT's untill 2 weeks ago). A few don't like that, but it hasn't become an official "issue" yet..

Reason #1 not to dispatch BEFORE reading CAD notes:   Manager of a Subway store is getting butt raped by a BM suspect and a toilet plunger, yes toilet plunger, complete with vasaline in the bathroom....


Reason #2 not to dispatch BEFORE reading CAD notes:  When trying to tell the SGT that his complainant is calling back and requesting him to come BACK out because the "tin foil" he told him to put on his head 15 mins ago is no longer working for him...

On a call from a lady who said someone was standing in front of her front door peep-hole covering it up...


"A june bug was observed to have landed on the residents peep-hole. No communication was made due to language barrier. Eventually the june bug was disregarded from the scene, no CTW issued at this time."

One of my favorites was from a Loose Livestock call.  The Deputy put in the call notes: " unable to make contact with emancipated bovine.."

it's sad because it was not a typo.... but call taker put it "wheel barrier in the roadway". Another new call taker... instead of putting it in as a dark skninned bm .. repeated what the compl stated ... that the male was black as coal. thank god that one didnt go to court.

Some of my fav's I have read;





  1. printed for the info of all shits.


  2. printed for the info of the dirty inspector.


  3. the damage to the property is to the roller shitters.


  4. stray bollocks seen wondering in the main road. - next line on the incident, correction should read bullocks.


  5. suspect vehicle is described as a maureen coloured car.  - next line read, sorry should read Maroon.


  6. the misper is apparently wearing a wooden coat.

My biggest problem seems to be the simplest words. Sometimes late at night I look at old cads from the same day or even the same oca number from a previous year (like if the call i just cadded was 2008-27591 i may pull up 1998-27591 to see what it was) and for some reason I cant correctly type the word "the". Time after time i find that I typed "teh". I just don't get it!!!!
