We have thousands of places to eat in orlando. Police officers in this area work 12hr shifts and are hard working. most officers take between 150 and 200 calls for service each month with an additional 100 plus traffic contacts. Time to eat is at a premium. Most places love to have officers in thier restaraunt. provides the touristers a sense of security in an unfamilair town. Plus we give out directions most of the time and it's cheap security. touristers also think if the police eat there it must be good and safe. however, as with most departments we have officers that abuse the priviledge or leave crappy tips. The free food goes away. Most places here realize that and don't offer free food but discount heavily. I never expect a free meal and never eat where I get one. I always leave a tip on what the bill should be and not what it is then, i add a couple more bucs. Our rule of thumb is always have enough money to pay full fare when you go out to eat or bring your food. For me my food rotting in my car, even in a cooler in the hot florida sun after 12hrs is not appetizing. wether or not an officer gives someone a ticket or not is up to the officer. There is nothing that says we have to give a ticket or don't have to give a ticket, reguardless of weather or not a meal was given or not. Quota's are illegal. Nobody can tell an officer to give someone a ticket or not.
Hit the nail right on the head.

A story just to enhance the stereotype.

I had an investigation running for a few weeks that required me to be in at 4:00 am. I would meet with 5 other investigators for a 30 minute meeting at the office and then we would head out. One morning I was feeling particularly generous so I stopped at a Dunkin Donuts and grabbed a box of donuts and coffee for the guys. I did it again a week later, and then again a week later. It wasn't until the third time that I realized they were charging me 50% for everything. I thanked the manager for the discount, he said no need for the thanks, they always give discounts to the best customers.

Not an LEO but I frequent bars on Tuesday night. I am the director of a large steel tip dart league and a lot of the bar owners know me.

I only drink soda or water and most bars only charge for the first fill or not at all..in return I make sure to give the server $1-$2 each time I go up.

x2. I always try to pay, but if the cashier insists on not charging me, I can't force him to take my money. So I leave a tip for the amount of the bill.

Although the owners of the resturants always offer her free meals, it is unethical for her to take them up on the offer. I was wondering if this happens all the time or is this the way it is around here? I would care for your feedback.
Its unethical for police officers to do that as well. For the same reasons its unethical for you wife. And if someone pays for my meal, I leave a tip for the cost of the meal.
