    While patrolling Section 8 housing complexes, I would routinely find toddlers and adolescent children walking and roaming the parking lots, playgrounds and pool areas well into the early morning. Sometimes, they are so young, that they would not know what apartment and/or building they reside. Clear case of child endangerment. LE would respond, locate the mom/dad and slap their hands and give then a verbal scolding and clear the call. Sometimes, the parent (s) would have priors for child abuse/endagerment. I simply sit there and shake my head in disbelief!

    Be safe,

    We've had parents lose kids as young as TWO at the theme park.

    The only one I ever came across and I had them twice,was when I was doing patrol for a shopping mall ,but the worst is when the parents use them,to get money off customers,they let there kids out of the van and make them run around and collect money. One day I caught them getting this women for at least ten dollars in change ,they informed the woman they needed it to feed them selfs and she handed it over feeling sorry for them. I caught them and ask what they were doing they told me the same story. I remembered these kids a week ago when there mother and the two same kids stop in a van and where asking for money.

    I look at Them and told them don't con me ,I ask them were there parents were and they clam up ,Looking at them a little harder I said listen I know your mother ,father or who knows what is park somewhere in this lot waiting for you,who is it? the young boy said it was his uncle> I put them in the patrol truck and took them back to the store so the client could called the police and I gave them the report,the van escape some where along the lines.

    Sad thing was about 6 months later I saw them again doing the same thing.

    We get hockey tournaments with young kids & their parents. The kids roam the hotels disturbing other guests. We catch them & bring them to their parents who are in their rooms drinking with other parents & don't want the kids there. I hate these types of groups.

Didn't think anything of it at that time. 2200 hrs. we drove by again, he was still there, asleep, and alone. We stopped to talk with him, the subject responded age 15, and reported that his parents would be there soon to pick him up, they were probably just late. After some more routine neighborhood patrol, we decided to go back at 2315. We made contact with the subject at the same location, advising him that he was now in violation of the curfew. I made a call to his residence, with no answer. We took him into custody, detained him based on the curfew ordenence, and decided to take him home. After several more calls to the residence, the father finally answered. I advised him of the situation, and told him that we would be there soon. We arrived at the residence, talked to the father, and released the teen. After talking to the father, he admitted to drinking, falling asleep, and forgetting to pick up his son. With many thanks, we moved on. Anyone ever had to take care of the forgotten children??
    When I was in LE, we often wondered whether we were cops or babysitters. Most disturbing were the parents who didn't even want to come down to the station to pick up their kids when we had to haul them in for something. I had more than one parent say something like "Well, let him rot in jail, then...it'll do him good! I can't do anything with him and I ain't coming down there at this time of night."

    No, I'm wrong. Just as bad were parents who would leave their children home alone to fend for themselves while they went off partying or blew out of town "just for the weekend", etc. The results were usually just as predictable as any reasonable person would expect, ranging from loud parties to fights and even house fires (there was a lot of incense-burning back then....).
