    I think personal safety is an issue and even with danger money it is not worth it under any circumstances. Where I worked on solo night shifts, I would quite often have 9 hours of down time in 12 hours, so apart from the compulsory reading, telephone contacts to check on upcoming rosters through Command / Control and radio monitoring, I would complete my reports from other sites to ensure I was paid for them on WORK time and not my own time - besides once midnight hit I would be not too interested in eating alot over the next few hours.

So, he offers me the choice between a sleepy little retirment community (no biggie, I used to be a psych tech on a geriatric ward) or a small hotel (sweet, I'd be around other humans again). After some chit-chat, we settled on posting me to the hotel and he told me the shift I'd be working and so on.

    Then tonight, he drops by again and tells me I'm being reassigned to a certain apartment complex (actually one large one and two other smaller ones). This was because the officer I'd be taking over for at the hotel isn't sure if he's going to leave yet. I wasn't too happy when I learned this. Not only is this complex known for major gang activity, but 95% of our radio traffic is for this site, causing the officer on duty to either chase calls or be mired in paperwork (usually both). On top of all that, it's nothing but 12 hour shifts on top of my other job.

    "You'll prolly enjoy it", my Capt. said. Ugh, I'm going to talk to my Chief and see if I can't land the old folks home. Oh well, least I passed my officer evaluation.
    I prefer to be busy all night. Unfortunately, paperwork is a huge part of the job. As the Lieutenant with 51 marked vehicles on the street, I respond to priority calls. If my officers are busy, I respond to calls for service. And even then, I do not do very much paperwork such as CIRs, FIRs and the like!
