    I got a call one night to go to a room where a guest had called from saying that she wanted to commit suicide. I rushed to the room & knocked on the door. I heard the guest telling me to come in. I let myself in & found a young female "stuck" in the bed. She had seen the James Bond film, Goldfinger. She decided to off herself by painting herself from head to toe in yellow paint. (She couldn't find gold paint at the store). Apparently in the movie the villian kills people by dipping them in paint. Their pores clog, they can't sweat & they die from heat exhaustion. The problem with her plan was that she crawled under her sheets in her bed to die. The paint dried & she became stuck to them!!

    I had another suicide where I found a guy hanging on the back of a door. The hotel had the customer comment cards. Before killing himself he had filled one out. There were 2 boxes to check off asking for the reason for the visit, business or pleasure? He drew a third box & checked off "suicide". Another question asked " will you return?" He wrote "what do you think?".

    I get my fun when working at our hotels that have large open parking lots by harrassing the escort agency drivers. They sit in the cars waiting for the "ladies" to finish their business with the guests. I approach them & ask what they're doing on the property. If they're honest with me I leave them alone. If they lie, I call the police & report a suspicious car

    My most discusting thing. On a patrol I went to open the door to the stairway & found it stuck. I pushed a little but there seemed to be something behind it. I put my shoulder against it & shoved hard. A guy who apparently had been on his knees was knocked over. Another man who had been standing in front of him quickly pulled up his zipper

      That's an interesting question, right there. We were told that if there's a suicide report, that we are not to enter the room or do anything else, but simply call 911. "Observe and Report." Because we might tamper with evidence or something.

      Anyone have a good policy on that?

      Also, Neil, used to have a problem with call girls at one of the hotels. We were lucky, they would linger around, so we'd hit them with a trespass warning. I know you can't do that though.

      I look at postitution on site like this: If they're lingering around the site, then its a security matter. If they go to the room, into it, do their business, and leave... Then we don't have to protect the client from them.

        I got into an arguement with the 9-1-1 call taker because I refused to cut down the guy I found hanging on the back of the door & start CPR. My Police Technology school wanting to preserve evidence took over, over my EMT training although I was taught that you did not have to start CPR if the person is OBVIOUSLY dead. When the person is hanging right side up & shoulders are pure white, the legs dark red & the body as stiff as a board, it obvious. And I'm surprised that in the states that has a reputation for suing more than we do that it would not be automatic that you have to try & do something while waiting for the ambulance.

        We used to be hard on the prostitutes but our owner ordered us to turn it down. Like you they are not allowed to hang around the bars (very rare now anyways in this age of escort agencies). But a prostitute going to a room is "part of what happens in a downtown hotel, it's not a church". Our guys are just trained to note any suspect prostitutes seen entering or leaving a room. The time & description is noted in the log. When guests get robbed by prostitutes they can't go home & tell their wife so a lot of them blame the Maid. If a prostitute was seen going into or leaving the room this is mentioned while they are making the theft report. As in "did you have any visitors?" "No, what about the 20 year old blond female seen going into your room at ...".

        When I started in the business the prostitutes working in the bars was a problem. We worked 2 per shift then, undercover but we had clip on badges. When we found a prostitute working in the bar we'd take out our badges & clip them to our pockets. We'd then go to the bar & one Officer would sit on either side of the "lady". We'd put our walkie-talkies up on the bar & order a Coke. For some reason they'd get up & leave

          hmmm funniest thing... not sure but heres two unusal things...

          i had to send a fellow officer to the hospital one night, it was raining all day and got really cold it was like 14 degrees out side, and officer pack, was on a exterior patrol, by one of the elevator bays was a patch of black ice, that is always icy, well he slipped and fell, and cut open his hand, it required 7 stiches

          now for numebr 2, the janitors have the thing the used to ride around on at crossroads mall salt lake city utah (although only there 2 months), it was kinda of a funny thing that happened i guess, well the ride around thing was supposed to mop the floors, as im on patrol, i hear a alarm coming from one of the tenant vacant kiosk, then i notice crumbles on the floor, i follow the trail of crumbles, and it lead to a concrete post that had some tile work on the first 24 inchs up the post to make it look all pretty, well one of the janitors ran the machine into the wall, they didnt say anything, they were supposed mind you, but i knew who did it the guy driving the blue scrubber machine. i ask how it happened he said he didnt know he turned it on and it went into the post. im thinking okay.... so you didnt park it before, you have been running the machine all night, how did it hit. he said he didnt know, so i went and got the polriad camera, to take pics, well the stupid thing dropped and broke. so that night we had two broken objects :P

          (btw i quit ipc international, which was the company that provided security for crossroads mall, i didnt care for the site manager and still dont he was sexist but would not admit it, thats a story for later)
          When not at work or out watching a moive.. passed out at the keyboard.

            This weekend I was called to retrieve a garbage can lid that some kids were playing with. By the time I got there the kids were gone and the lid was across the street at the prostitutes’ corner. There was a van parked getting ready to pick up some prostitutes while I walk up. The passenger door slammed shut before they could get in and the van peeled out. The prostitutes just stood there not knowing what to do.

            The next day on 1st shift (thank goodness I wasn’t working) security from the building across the street calls up and says their is a guy going to the bathroom next to one of your buildings. The CCO looks on camera and the guy is done and at the bus stop. Well he didn’t pee. The CCO sends a patrol officer over to the bus stop. The officer says you clean your mess up or we call the cops. The guy cleans his mess and leaves.
            How gross is that and the guy didn’t even try to hide when he went, it was right on the sidewalk you could still see the stain.

              I would have to say that I have two examples of the dumbest calls that I have had to respond to. One resident called about a large toad that "wouldn't let" her into her apartment. Another one was of a spider in a resident's shower!

              Be safe,

                Having lived in that area I would assume the Spider was a Wolf spider. Two pronounced fangs and it's eyes when hit with a flashlight would be extremely blue as in the blue reflectors in some driveways. Those dudes would grow big and hang out in showers looking for water. They also were known to jump at you on occasion as a scare tactic and it really works.

                Also I would bet the frog peed on you the moment you touched him /her?
                I think all the horror movie makers get their inspirations from Fla. We were training for night dives in a pool in the Tarpon Springs area and came across an Owl in the road eating a DOA Armadillo. The Owl had to be 3 feet tall. Unbelievable and no we we not drinking
                THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL IS FOUR MINUTES
                THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .357 MAGNUM ROUND IS 1400 FEET PER SECOND?

                  In my EMT-B Training I learned that dead people need CPR, lol.

                  I see what you are saying like the rigor mortis is a good sign that no matter what you do the patient is not going to survive but still I mean in most circumstances it couldn't hurt to give it a try. Someone might appear to be dead forever but you could bring them back. Especially if family happens to be around they need to know you have done everything.

                  In some states in the US you might have had a duty to act if you are a certified EMT in that state, so you would get in trouble for not doing anything. On the other hand, anywhere in the US you can go ahead and do you best to help and even if you screw up you cant get in trouble for it because you are a "Good Samaritan".
