    Let's hear some of the exciting beginnings you've had to a shift!

    Just a few days ago the off going shift had three bail from a stolen vehicle. Within a few hours we had their leftovers cleaned up with three in jail!

    I've started shifts with confirmed armed robberies, burglaries in progress, and a couple months ago as I was pulling out of my apartment complex they toned out an officer needs help call around the corner from me

    we change at 7, and i was coming out a bit early to gas up and head to squad meeting...radio tones and it was less than 2 blocks from me

    within approx. 2 minutes, an area that normally is patrolled by 6-7 officers had over 30 in it, and 1 cracked out homeless dude was in custody

    I much prefer starting a shift with craziness than ending...back in march, I was enroute to a civil disturbance and about a minute before i got there, central upgraded the call to a fight in progress and possible riot situation (call was at a night club)

    As me and another officer pull into the lots, we could smell the gunfire that had apparently JUST taken place...we cut on the blues and start flipping the sirens to clear out the lot...I park and get out of my car to assist a club security guard in breaking up a small fight...as I'm moving back towards the back parking lot with the other officer, gunfire erupts out of the back parking lot...not just a couple handgun rounds...but around 20-30 in very quick succession...we quickly draw and cover as more gunfire erupts...cars are flying out of the lot, and as we move around the building to look for victims, 2 security guards start returning fire with 2 vehicles who are STILL shooting as they leave the lot

    End result, 1 security guard in jail, 3 thugs were shot (none fatally) and 1 security guard cleared

    This all occurred around 530-6am...

    Learned tho, that if you start yelling shots fired shots fired into the radio, and other officers can hear the shooting over the radio...central will tone out an officer needs assistance to all neighboring jurisdictions...it was quite comforting to know that units could get there as quick as they did
