this is why you want always want to date a cop instead of a hoseroller;)

A FIREMAN came home from work one day and told his wife, 'You know, we have a wonderful system at the fire station: BELL 1 rings and we all put on our jackets,
BELL 2 rings and we all slide down the pole,BELL 3 rings and we're on the fire truck ready to go.

From now on when I say BELL 1 I want you to strip naked.

When I say BELL 2 I want you to jump in bed.

And when I say BELL 3

We are going to make love all night.

The next night he came home from work and yelled
' BELL 1!'
The wife promptly took all her clothes off.

When he yelled 'BELL 2!', the wife jumped into bed.

When he yelled 'BELL 3!', they began making love.

After a few minutes the wife yelled 'BELL 4!'

'What the hell is BELL 4?' asked the husband?

'ROLL OUT MORE HOSE,'she replied, 'YOU'RE NOWHERE NEAR THE FIRE.'

yay, Officer Elliott!!

Chicago police officer Christopher Elliott is being hailed as a hero after he revived a choking toddler around Wednesday night.
NBC Chicago reports that Elliott had been writing a traffic crash report near the intersection of Diversey and Western in the city's Logan Square neighborhood when a man ran up to his car, tapped on the glass and asked for the officer to come to the 15-month-old boy's aid. The child's parents did not speak very much English but Elliott went immediately into action to save him.

excellent post from an excellent blog

About two hundred years ago, Robert Peel said “Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”

How many times have you spoken to officers who speak of the general public as a group that is separate, distinct and beneath the police? Those officers refer to the pubic as “Idiots” or speak of the public in “us” versus “them” terms. Officers are “on the job” and the rest are simply “sheeple.” While certainly our training and our experiences differentiate police officers from those in other professions, we must be careful not to let our pride in our jobs become arrogance.
The interests of the community and the interests of the police should be the same. We need to insure that we don’t violate the rights of the public. We need to make sure the public is kept safe from the few who are inclined to criminal acts. We also need to be sure that we don’t hold the public in contempt, they are our customers and they pay our salaries. We are there to serve their needs, by doing so we are granted extraordinary powers and authority. It is a great trust that we must hold high; that’s what the SGT Says
