  • interesting comments you have heard while in uniform

    - in my current uni i get a lot of hello "officer" "good day officer" and i usually bid them with a how are you or you have a good day too

    -when doing mall security we had detex wands once a guy said oh thats cool you guys get tasers, you ever use it ? i stated "oh thanks yea its cool looking, but i hate to tell ya its not a taser"

    what are some of the quirky things you have heard while on duty ?

    A few years ago I was working at a small college. I had a student ask me "So, are you a real cop or are you like...one of the fake ones?" I replied by saying "I'm...like..one of the fake ones."

      When I wear my CPO Uniform I am always asked (It says "CUSTOM" in big letters) stuff like "So, do you like, work with the Border Patrol?" , "Why do they have US Customs here?" , "Do you work on the canadian or mexican border?" , "I bet you're here for (Insert hispanic name), huh?"

      Or, when I used to work for another company where I wore an M26 Advanced Law Enforcement Taser, I used to always get asked, "So, what model Glock is that?" I just told them, "Its an M26" ... Most people would just nod their head and walk off, some would actually tell me how good or bad that Glock is in their "experience".

      People keep me entertained.

I stand as an ordinary citizen. I have no right to; detain, interrogate or otherwise interfere with your personal property-... basically all that means is I'm a cop."-Officer Ernie

        Heh... It's like I always say:

          I get this sometimes from people most likely not from around here at the airport I work at.

          "So, you a cop?"
          me "no, Iam a security Officer"

          "Ohh I didnt know security guards could carry guns"

          Also I was walking by a group of people and a young kid told his mom as I was walking by, look he has a gun, his mom looks at me and tells the boy, its a fake gun!.

          People are real stupid, thats about all I can say. Somedays I go home and hope to god that Iam not the only sane person in this world.

            Heard the "Security guards can carry guns?" thing a lot. In Florida. Where 90% of public contacts with an open carry armed individual will be with a security officer.

            And, of course, "Is this place safe? I mean they have security here."

              I've heard a few amusing things:
              * "Are you hear because of that Flying Saucer incident?" (There's a restaurant next door called The Flying Saucer.) "I'm not aware of any u.f.o. sightings ma'am."
              * "Are you a real policeman or a security guard?" "I'm a real security guard, thank you."
              * (Funny grin) "Wow I'm glad we're so well protected." (Walks away quickly)
              * "How many people have you arrested lately?"
              * "I didn't know security guards could carry guns. Why do you need those?"
              * "Howdy doo, Sheriff Pusser."

              Then there are a few things I hate to hear but it happens anyway.
              * "See that policeman over there kiddo? You better do what I say or I'll take you over there and he'll take you to jaaail." (Kid starts crying, waaah) (Parent gives me a sheepish grin and a hand flip while I stand there wanting to spank the parent in front of the kid)
              * "Oh look mommy, an officer." "No honey, it's not a real one."
              * "Hey you can't park there! If I can't you can't either!" (Me parked in loading zone for bank deposit escort) "That's very observant of you sir, thank you. Do something about it."
              * "Can you watch my car while I'm inside eating? My kid's in the back seat."
              * "Carry my bags for me."
              "We appreciate all the hard work you've done, the dedicated hours you have worked, and the lives you have saved. However, since this is your third time being late to work, we are terminating your employment here."

                  So far it’s been from the status quo: Why do you carry a revolver? Have to admit I wonder that too. The other is always what caliber is it and do you get to carry more than six bullets. Idiots...

                    I get called Turkey Bacon all the time.

                    I also get Top-Flite Security and a few other nicknames from the basketball team.

                    I can't remember all the things that have been said.


                    The stupid things I hate the most.

                    While sitting in the College Patrol vehicle in uniform:

                    THEM: "Do you work for the college?"
                    ME: Umm let me look (get out of car and look at cars decals) yep I think I do, now how can I help ya"

                    While working at the mall while standing in front of a great big huge giagantic neon sign all light up:
                    THEM: "Do you know where the Theater is?"
                    ME: I just point to the sign and say "NOPE" lol

                      Walking down the hallway with my badge around my neck & the walkie-talkie in my hand I always get the "do you work here?"

                      My first hotel was the Windsor Hotel on Peel street in Montreal. Peel street used to be called Windsor & one of Montreal's train stations was on the street 2 blocks south of the hotel. People would walk in all the time asking where the trains were. We'd have fun pointing to the elevator & telling them to go to the 3rd floor!

                      The owner of the hotel said something to me once that when I look back was "funny". In Montreal the month of January is dead in the hotel business. Businessmen don't travel & there are no tourists. In 1998 Quebec, Ontario & the northern US states were hit by a serious ice storm. Most of the area had no electricity. The hotel was located on the same electrical grid as Hydro Quebec's head office. We were one of the few places that did not loose power. As a result the hotel was packed. One night the owner was walking in the lobby looking at the crowd with a big smile on his face. I went up to him & asked "is now a good time to ask for a raise?" With a straight face he says to me " the elevator is over there, get inside & push the up button" LOL
                      I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

                        Don't work with public, but some dumb convicts.....

                        Had one convict tell my officer: "You can't search my property without a warrant!" My officer held up his I/D Card and said, "Here is my warrant."

                        Had a convict tell ME once, "You legally can't keep me here, I am from another state. I stay here cause I am doing you a favor!"
                        I explained to him I was doing him a favor by not letting him climb the fence.
