Officer Training 101

Alright recruits, today is the 2nd day of officer training.  What do uniformed police officers do, in short we serve and protect the citizens of Blogville.  Officer's will be assigned to patrol specific geographic areas checking for signs of criminal activity.  You are authorized to use force, however we do not shoot law breakers or criminals, we do not use bullets, we only stun them with poopie pellets till we can subdue them, or capture them for Frankie’s Court.  Blogville is normally a peaceful place however we do encounter the occasional DWI, Public Intox, and high speed chases.  Each officer will be issued a walkie talkie so you can communicate with each other.  You will need to learn the police 10 codes, here are a few examples:

10-4 “Ok”

10-20 “your location”

10-55 “drunk driver”

10-80 “chase in progress”

10-95 “prisoner in custody”

Let’s say you have encountered a drunk squirrel.
Always approach with caution and be prepared to take verbal abuse from the drunken squirrel, he will be using all kinds of HBO words, just shake it off and don’t take it pawsonal, remember he’s drunk.  Be sure to call in your 10-20 so others can arrive on scene to assist you.  Once your backup arrives, command the squirrel to get on the ground and to lay flat and spread eagle.
Next cuff him and stuff him in the paddy wagon.
Call in the 10-95, head to the jail and book him.

Now let’s say you have spotted a 10-55.
Call it in on your walkie talkie and again give your 10-20.  Activate the siren and lights, this lets the drunk driver know he needs to pull over.  If the drunk driver fails to pull over and accelerating his speed call in a 10-80.  The Blogville Police Force will assist you.

We want to avoid any accidents during our pursuit.
Remember saving lives is our duty and high speed chases are very dangerous to us, the public, and for the drunk driver therefore we want to avoid this from happening.
Instead we want our prisoner in custody.

Recruits this concludes our training for the day, if you would fill out the class survey and turn it in as you head out the door.  One more note, we have much more training to do this week, get ready to work your furry butts off this week.  I promise it will be rewarding and you will be trained and prepared for whatever situation you find yourself in. CLASS DISMISSED.
