Sheriff’s Deputies Credited With Saving The Life Of Compton Toddler

Great job, guys!!
Sheriff’s deputies saved the life of an 18-month-old Compton boy Thursday by clearing the baby’s airway so he could breathe.
Today, the boy’s family and little Eduardo in tow, came to the Sheriff’s station to offer their gratitude.
The rescue occurred just before 4 p.m. Thursday at an apartment in the 2000 block of East Alondra Boulevard, said Sgt. Peter Ramirez of the Compton sheriff’s station.

ok WHAT GIVES??!!

I was doing some "research"--yeah that's what they call it these days--and I noticed there are a TON of firefighter calendars with half nekkid guys on them, but hardly any police officer calendars.

What gives?!

Firefighters seem to be willing to do whatever it takes to raise the $$, why are the police so afraid of baring their chests?! Heck, I can't even find a uniform calendar this year.

Tis truly a sad day when the firemen outshine the poleece....sigh.

I feel HORRIBLE giving publicity to a bunch of hose rollers but...

Ha! Ha! I kid because I care.

When it comes to calenders, you officers have left us ladies down BIG TIME this year, and  I have no choice but to suggest this calendar...

The Tulsa Metro Firefighter Calendar. It's $23 so I guess that's the going rate for screaming o's:)

After careful review of this calendar, I have but two words to say to you, ladies:  September! October!

just in time to ring in the New Year, Ladies.....

The Sacramento Sheriff's Department has a 2011 K9 calendar for sale!! I read about it in this article earlier today.

Although they SAY they're focused on the dog, you still see a picture of the officer with the dog. At least from what I can see on the one whole preview page they gave us!

I do think the cost is a bit high, considering they also charge $5 for shipping and handling. $25 is a lot for a calendar. I prefer to think of it as a $25 donation to the K9 dogs.

If anybody has one, please let us know how they are. And when we ask how "they" are, we're talking about the guys, of course:)

Police Sacrifice

"Police Sacrifice"

While you sleep, we're there.
When you're sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner, or celebrating Christmas, we're there.
When its raining and cold, and you're glad to be in your home with your family, we're out there.
When it's your children's birthday, we're out there.
When it's our children's birthday, we're still out there.
You put on a suit and dress to go to work, we strap on a ballistic vest and a gun.
There's little room for error in your job, in ours there is none.
An error by you means a demotion, an error by us means a funeral.
When you tell your families "see you tonight" as you leave for work, you mean it. When we tell our family that, we pray we will.
At your job you strive to succeed, at our job we strive to survive.
In your job, one bad person is the talk of the office, in our job, one bad officer makes the news and suddenly were all bad.
In these headlines it's not what good we've done, but how much better it could have been done.
When you're scared you call us, when we're scared, we must carry on.
While you're eating a home cooked meal, we're having another hamburger.
While you're asleep with your spouse, ours sleep alone.
So the next time you're out with your family or friends, and you see a patrol car go by, remember the incredible sacrifice made by these officers every day.
Inside that car is a person that sacrifices his/her life, both professionally and personally Every day.

rounding up the criminals

This is why I'd never want to be married to a cop...

That chick's "alibi" on COPS last week really sucked, didn't it? I'm referring to the one who allegedly laid a motorcycle driver out on the sidewalk.

She kept blathering, "It was not me driving. It was not me. It was my friend from the bar. I was not driving. I was the passenger."

Then two seconds later, when the cop asked her why she was in the area, she said, "Because I was driving her [the friend] home." OUCH.

They'll catch you in a lie every freaking time! 

spinich really IS good for you!

This deputy has definitely been hitting the gym since the last time he was on COPS...yowza!!


s-s-s-saturday night

ho ho h---oh gawd, that had to hurt

I was watching COPS, and I would think it might be a tad humbling for a guy to be on national tv, and hear the sheriff's deputy say, "So you're 28 years old....and you still live with your mama?"

i love, i love, i love my calendar boys!!

Geez, the law enforcement calendars for 2011 have been few and far between this year. Why the slim pickens, people?!!

Anywho, the good men of the San Diego Enforcers have their calendar out again this year, and trust me, if it's as ...ahem...meaty as last year's you'll enjoy it! Most of last years pics were taken shirtless on the beach, and some of the guys were in suits. Now how did they know we women love good looking men in those two states of dress...and undress???

The San Diego Enforcers is made up of law enforcement and fire fighters across the county, so you know the guys are in fantastic shape. I was sweating just looking at them.

I bought the calendar last year and didn't regret it. But I did turn it around to face the wall, when I was pigging out on junkfood so the studs couldn't see me. Yes, their bulging biceps and ripcord thighs made me feel guilty!  
The greatest feature of this calendar, though, is that AND if you flip the pages of the calendar really quickly, the guys do a strip tease for you! Ok, that's a total lie............and simply wishful thinking on my part. (Hint, hint for next year's calendar, guys!)


Anyhow, you can buy the Enforcer's calendar here and here is a sample shot from the 2011 edition:











Gawd, is it even POSSIBLE for the human body to have that many toned muscles?! Somebody pass me the bag of Doritos. I feel a huge headache coming on.....

'Shop with a Cop' in Covington brings police and smiling kids together in the spirit of Christmas

Make sure you take the time to look at the Flickr photo stream. I love to see the expressions of joy on the faces of the children, as well as the officers, too.
----------

Cops and smiling kids filled the aisles at the Covington Walmart Saturday, Dec. 11, during the Shop with a Cop event.
The program is designed to help children buy up to $50 of gifts. The event is for youths and families that would not otherwise have the means to buy Christmas presents for themselves or family members.

t hee hee

                     Here are some funny/cute cop tees available this Christmas season...


                                                        Hmm, they spelled it wrong....



                                        I thought this motorcops one was just plain cool....


this little light of mine, i'm gonna let it shine

For the past 22 years, Concerns of Police Survivors has asked law enforcement families, surviving families, and police supporters to put a blue light in their windows during the holiday season. The blue light is symbolic of our remembrance of those officers who have made the supreme sacrifice and honors those officers who continue to work the violent streets of our nation.

The idea began in 1988 when Mrs. Dolly Craig wrote to C.O.P.S. that she would be putting two blue candles in her living room window that holiday season. One for her son-in-law, Daniel Gleason, who had been killed in the line of duty while serving the Philadelphia (PA) Police Department on June 5, 1986, and one for her daughter and Danny’s wife, Pam, who had been killed in an automobile accident in August 1988. Danny and Pam had 6 children. Dolly Craig is now deceased as well, but the idea is her legacy. Project Blue Light now burns bright in the hearts of the nearly 15,000 surviving families of America’s fallen law enforcement officers during the holiday season.

“Everyone who appreciates law enforcement should get involved with Project Blue Light,” said Linda Gregory, C.O.P.S. National President, “Project Blue Light allows citizens to show support for local law enforcement and the heroes who have been killed in the line of duty.”

Project Blue Light is a simple gesture; during the holidays decorate with blue lights or simply insert a single blue bulb in the candle stick replicas that adorn many windows in homes or businesses. C.O.P.S. also encourages law enforcement agencies to decorate the precinct stations and headquarters in blue lights.

The color blue is symbolic of peace. By displaying blue lights in your holiday decorations, you will be sending a dual message – that you support America’s peacekeepers and that you hope the coming year will be a year of peace.

Visit C.O.P.S. website www.nationalcops.org to order a new LED blue light developed especially for Concerns of Police Survivors by Streamlight®.

i'll tell you once more before i get off the floor....don't bring me down

I don't know if this is legit, but remember this open letter I wrote to John Langley?

Well, today, I received this email:


Dear Rebecca:
Forgive me, please!
Never will COPS jump the shark.  We had to feature some other law enforcement agencies...
and do...now and then.  However, you can be assured that COPS will continue to feature
cops! 
Stay tuned to see if we (I) keep my word.  Meanwhile, thank you for watching COPS--and
rest assured I'll try to not disappoint you in the future.
Sincerely,
John Langley
Executive Producer
COPS


And after the signature line, Langley finished the email off with a couple of cop smiley faces.

I kid. I kid.

Here's the really weird thing--yeah, weirder than the fact that there's a chance this is legit--off and on all day long I was thinking about how COPS really HAS jumped the you know what after last week's episode. Yes, my life is just that BORING, people. I'm either thinking about COPS or what I'm going to have for lunch...
BUT, now that COPS has finally gotten back to police officers, we had a repeat officer and..........dare I say it?????........ a CHICK COP! Guh! If that's not a sure sign it's jumped the shark, what is?!



All I can say is: DON'T LET ME DOWN, JOHN LANGLEY!!! DON'T LET ME DOWN!!!!

hee haw!

and the wild justice continues

fire up the ole charge card

Mass Vest a Dog has their latest 2011 K9 calendar available for sale at $10 each.

While the proceeds benefit a worthy cause and the canine pics are beautiful, I don't think the folks behind this calendar have a firm grasp of what makes for a "good" calendar and what makes for a "FANTASTIC" calendar.

Here's a hint, MVaD: Include pics of the TWO LEGGED officers...

I saw approximately ONE picture with an officer and his dog.

They can take some lessons from John Baer's 2011 Cops and Dogs Calendar:)

awww, that puppy looks like my puppy...

oh my, my, my...

Ok, not exactly the *best choice* for an article title...

Yeah, I have a Pocket Rocket I use in case of emergencies, too......
-------

In case of emergency, call for 'Pocket Rocket'


Her nickname is "Pocket Rocket," and if there's an emergency that involves bombs or explosives, she's first on the scene.

Afra is Chester County's newest elite K-9 officer, a female German shepherd trained to sniff out explosives of any type.

"She's amazing," said Carolyn "Bunny" Welsh, Chester County sheriff. "She can find any material that is used to put a bomb together. And she's small, so she can get into smaller places."
