    Yeah we get free drinks and discounts eating for the exact same reasons.

    I usually don't bother the smokers too much. If I catch it rolling down the road, and you got less than a half ounce, i'll usually let you dump it and go on. Unless you say stupid shit.

    Until they legalize it, it's illegal. My jobs not to make the laws...it's to enforce them. I don't see to much of a problem with smoking weed in your own home. Just my opinion.

    I may have more questions later, but my first is how old are you? I think the attitudes of cops are very dependent on their age so I'm trying to figure out whether or not you fit my mental image.

    btw, awesome thread, very insightful

    edit: here's a question. do cops smoke weed? or are you regularly drug tested?

    I got a question for you, when you ask to look in someones back pack do they have a right to say no? and if so what can you do once they say no/ can you get charged with an unlawful search under unreasonable grounds

    If the cops have a warrant to search my house but I'm not home can they still enter? do I have the right to be there during the search?

    Ok, this one's a little basic, but I've never known. What are all the ways you can tell if a person's speeding? (Lemme break it down)

    I know the obvious one about the radar gun from a parked car... but...

    -Can a cop in a moving car following you accurately tell your speed with a radar gun? Do they use other measures? What would you recommend a driver do once he notices a cop suddenly following him?
    -Is a cop going the opposite direction able to catch someone for speeding in the other lane? On a two lane road? How about on a divided highway or interstate?
    -Anything else you think we should know about to make your jobs/our lives easier?

    I know these might be common knowledge, but I've never gotten definitive answers.

    How lax is your department as far as priors for drug use? Obviously you smoked weed and became a cop, but im just curious as to how the random department, on average, uses past drug use against an applicant.

I think like this (which may be fucked up, but oh well) Walmart employees get a 10% discount, this is a cops discount.





    Nothing, age of consent in KY is 16. That means as longs as SHE don't care that your having sex with her, noone can say anything about it. Her parents may not like it, but it's not criminal.
    haha, my grandpa is a retired cop and anytime he opens up his wallet for a cop that pulled him over, you can clearly see his badge. He's never got a ticket in his life.

    Someone told me they got a ticket for not switching to the left lane when a squad car is parked on the shoulder, idle on the highway.

    How easy is it to take stuff from the evidence room and not get caught?

    I've been drug tested twice. once when I got hired and once when I wrecked a car. Alot of departments do it more. I don't know of any that smoke weed. I'm 28.

    You have every right to refuse. If i wanna look in your car, and you say no, The only other ways I can are with a search warrant, or a drug dog alerts on it. You won't be able to get a SW with no probable cause, and if there's no dog around then i'm shit outta luck.

    Good Question. I know some troopers that set thier cruise at 65, and if a car passes them, they write them a ticket. A moving radar is able to pick up any car coming at, or going away from a cop. Stationary radar can pick you up if the cop can point it at you. If a cop is behind you, move outta his way if possible, he probably just wants to pass you. Another little tip. Radar detectors are a waste of money. By the time your radar detector goes off, My radar has your speed.

    Yeah, it's the move over law. Pisses cops off when a car leaves paint on our uniform b/c they wanna see how close they can get, or not paying attn.

    It wouldn't be easy. Everything is cataloged and waiting on cases.

    Great thread, nice to see all cops aren't assholes. Keep the questions coming, I can't really think of any to ask off the top of my head.
