    That's pretty good advice.

    I also have some advice for you. In the future, before you hit "Submit," find the little button that shows "ABC" over a check mark.

    Then, click it.

      I agree with that. When I was in LE and working uniform I was always careful about where I ate. I remember a case when I lived in the San Diego area where an LE Officer, ordering food through a Jack-in-the Box drive through received a burger that had spit in it. (Cook's revenge). He actually got sick and the spitter was prosecuted.

        Subjects contaminating food and drink is part of why I wrote and tried to enforce rules about accepting such things from a particular coffee shop at the mall at closing time.

        But, very unfortunately and perhaps one day fatally, after several informal presentations, management decided it was better for morale to accept the perk.

        I just never understood that...

          I read a story in a Police Magazine where an officer bit into a cheeseburger and suddenly felt a burning in their neck... they investigated the burger and it looked normal for the most part. Upon a closer investigation they found that mixed in the chopped and diced onion was shards of glass.

          I dont do fast food in uniform unless I am on really good terms with the staff, such as if a friend is working there who would give me the heads up on any no-good stuff.

            Just go thru the drive thru and cover your uniform up with a windbreaker. They will be none the wiser!

              Unless you're driving the marked patrol vehicle, of course. A Crown Vic/Impala with reflective emblems and a lightbar kinda give you away.

              I've dropped most fast food altogether after being posted to a very unfriendly part of the city (where many of the employees of these establishments are suspects I've dealt with, or siblings/friends of suspects, or just general punks) - I now stick to a Subway store in the slow part of town. Not only is it healthier, but you can also watch them make your sandwich.

                Yep, I hide my uniform in drive thrus and go to coffee places that let me pour my own. Sandwich shops where you can watch em put your sandwich together are the only safe places.

                I went to a Round Table Pizza place on a saturday, after waiting ten mintues and not even getting my order taken I left. Fortunately I haven't seen that crew back. Maybe it wasn't my uniform, maybe they just treated everyone like that.

                  Now I'm afraid to eat tonight. I keep catching the cook smoking in the hotel. (Smoking was banned last year)

                  Actually I was told when I started in this business that there are 2 employees you do not p*ss off in hotels. Cooks, for reasons already stated & Stationary Engineers (if you don't want to roast in the summer & freeze in the winter).

                      And I thought the movie Super Size me, grossed me out me... Thanks guys, you now take the cake.

                      I have head similar in the past though, my post isn't near any fast food places (that we can go to) so it's normally delivery here, but we do have a lot food delivery drivers in here on a regular basis.
                      I'm the guy you don't want to be around when your doing something wrong, but you can't wait for me to get there when your down, to fix you up...

                        I believe the incident that BHR Lawson is referring to, took place here locally in the north Tampa area. If I am not mistaken, there were two Hillsborough County Deputy Sheriffs that were on a meal break together at a local McDonald's restaurant. The second Deputy also ate and suffered some injury but was not nearly as bad. I do not recall the outcome of the poisoning however. I suppose the only thing an officer could do to prevent others from tampering with their food is to make it at home.

                        Be safe,

                            I generally don't eat at all whilst on duty... if the post is for an extended duration I will bring something from home, drinks are purchased sealed or carried on me (no exceptions)

                              There was a case here in Arizona (I think Phoenix area) where a sheriff went through a drive through and ordered a burger meal. He took one bite of the burger and noticed it tasted funny. When he opened it there was crack cocaine pieces inside the burger. He went in and arrested the cook and 2 others. The 2 were sentenced to 5-10 for poisoning and assault, the cook 15-20 for agrevated assault with a deadly weapon, posession of narcotics, and a couple of other things. (I would wonder if deadly force would be authorized, temporary insanity or something because I would have been extremely PO'd)

                              I still see sheriff's and border patrol all the time at drive thru's. I don't get it.
