it's that time again, kids!

What time? Cop calendar time!

Once again, John Baer is putting out his Cops and Dogs,  Police K9 Calendar.

I've bought this calendar for the last few years in a row and I've always been impressed by the beautiful pictures John has in his calendar. It's a nice size 12" x 12", and the calendar squares are big. Leaves you lots of room to write important things like "saw a hott cop today!":)

Check it out.

As always, if you see any nice cop calenders for the upcoming year, please drop me a line so I can let everyone know.

he's working that motorcop 'tude!

it's time for another roundtable discussion

Some nights I lay awake worrying that I'm doing you a disservice by posting these pictures of hott cops because it could be turning your brains to mush.
Some nights I worry that I'll be responsible for a generation of women who see officers not as a human beings, but as man meat in a uniform.
Some nights I worry I'll have one of those water dreams and instead of waking up in the nick of time, I'll pee myself in my sleep.

Go figure.

So read this article, and tell me what you think:)  Then I'll  know your haven't totally lost the ability to articulate your thoughts....you know, on something other than hott guys!

wonder what a....

"Master police officer" is? Does that mean he's better than the average bear police officer, but not good enough to be promoted to the next rank? (Can you tell I have no clue what the next rank would be? And I thought I hid my ignorance so cleverly...)

if the captain looks this sharp in a suit...

I wonder what he looks like in uniform!

starting the week off with a laugh....

A rookie Police Officer was assigned to ride in a cruiser with a more experienced partner. 
 
A call came over the car's radio telling them to disperse some people in town who were loitering. 
 
The officers drove to the street and immediately observed a small crowd standing on one corner. 
 
The rookie rolled down his window and said, "Let's get off the corner." 
 
No one moved, so he barked again, "Let's get off the corner now!" Intimidated, the group of people began to leave, casting puzzled glances in his direction. 
 
Proud of his first official act, the young policeman turned to his partner and asked,
 
"Well, how did I do?"
 
Pretty good, "replied the veteran, "considering this is a bus stop."

America's Police Officer Of the Year

Emily Bowman, a frail 72-year-old diabetic, was sleeping in her recliner at 4:30 a.m. on Jan. 9 when a fire alarm sounded at Briarleigh Court, a 40-unit apartment complex for the elderly in Hillsville, Va. Instead of going out an exterior door that would have meant safety, the startled senior citizen opened an interior door and stepped into a burning, smoke-filled hallway.

Virginia State Trooper Matt Cochran,  28, was on patrol less than a minute away. He and two other police officers arrived at the scene even before firefighters. Together, they began banging on residents' doors. Then Cochran heard screams. What he did next has led PARADE and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) to name him their 2010 Police Officer of the Year.

"I had a flashlight," Cochran recalls, "but it was absolutely worthless. The smoke was so thick you could feel it. One step in, and you couldn't see the doorway. My uniform was starting to melt." Crawling on his hands and knees, he made three attempts to reach the source of the cries. "I couldn't find her the first time. The second time I had to come out for air. The third time I bumped into her. Then I stood up and walked her out. There were three explosions from residents' oxygen tanks. The third one sounded like a bomb going off. It shook the whole building."

there's no fooling those K9 dogs!

Dog stops camouflaged burglary attempt, police say


Imagine the police dog handler's surprise when the canine snapped at the ground, and the ground cried out.
That was how a police dog found a camouflaged burglary suspect, authorities in Washington County, Oregon, said Thursday.
The dog alerted his handler that he smelled something on the ground about a half-mile from the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals in Hillsboro, Oregon, a Washington County Sheriff's Department spokesman said.
The movement of the suspect spooked the dog, who bit the ground, which "cried out in pain," said Sgt. David Thompson.
The ground turned out to be a man dressed in a ghillie suit, made to resemble trees and earth, he said. Military snipers and hunters often wear the camouflaged suit.
Gregory Liascos of nearby Portland, Oregon, was charged with burglary and criminal mischief, Thompson said. Liascos, 36, has no criminal history and was lodged in the Washington County Jail pending a hearing, authorities said. He was treated on the scene for the dog bite on his shoulder blade.
