Am ROFLMAO!!! Will definitely pass this on! Have HS friend who still works for Cheyenne PD, and a cousin with Campbell County Sheriff . . . plus a few dispatchers I know will get a kick out of it. Stories like this are the fun part about working as a consultant for Public Safety! You can't make this stuff up!! ;-)

The same goes for cops, as well as dispatchers the only extremely dangerous ones actually get fired. Makes the rest of the cops look irresponsible and ignorant of the constitution. My uncle recently was murdered by a drunk illegal immigrant, he was Azusa, CA pd.. A lieutenant I think, But when i went to the funeral it felt like a cult meeting basically they made it all about themselves and how "we take care of our own". What about the people and the constitution you took an oath to defend?

He also was the founder of the "explorers program" for young people who want to get a jump start to being in law enforcement, I'm not fond of authority or especially kid's indoctrination camp. But honestly it was a good thing, But after my uncle's death I read of 2 officers near LA who were on patrol with 2 underage girls in the Explorer program, Well they got caught making the girls give them oral sex.

Like i said I'm sure there's plenty of "Good" cops that obey their oath and carry themselves with morals and integrity, and my belief is that there are just as many "good" cops as there are the "bad" cops.

Loved the story! A little frightening to think that some dispatchers are so inept.
I do feel the need to comment on your statement "Because dispatchers pay is even worse than police pay....". Perhaps some police officers need to come to Tucson to work! Of the 200 highest paid city employees in Tucson, 105 are police officers. All make over $100,000 a year. Included in the top 200 are all judges, attorneys, City Administrator, etc. I don't mean to doubt the officer's worth, but they don't seem to be doing too badly here! Several Sergeants make $123,00+.

One thing you run into, some places and frequencies you get a LOT of interference when sunspot activity is up. And, be it said, there's an 'ear' for working radio traffic: some have it, some can develop it, some never get it. I had a hell of a time on some calls for about three months, then it was like a switch was thrown: I could understand almost ANYTHING that came over the radio.

But I caught hell a couple of times during that three months.
