We all know cops do more than just clean up crime! (Service Calls)

Recommended Posts

We all know cops do more than just chase bad guys. Here is a take on the other side of being an officer. Civilian Service Jobs:
 

1) Traffic Control -  A traffic Light goes out. Cars going everywhere. Cop(s) get to the intersection to control the traffic (while the power company gets to the scene to fix the light) by either controlling traffic with hand motions (or lighted batons at night) or, hooking the traffic light box to their cop car computer and controlling traffic with lights that way.

2) Escorts - Local funeral home needs escorts for the processional to move traffic to the sides, prominent dignitary comes to town, President even.

3) Event Patrol - Patrol the local fair, or concert to watch for fights, drug deals and other trouble, or maybe nothing happens.

4) Event Traffic Control - Huge Church letting out, Concert Ending, Fair Closing -  Someones going to need to control the traffic of exiting participants!

5) Area Check - Someone is out of town and wants to check on their house.

I'm not a Modder, so I have no idea how doable these are, but if they are, Just some ideas.

 

Other crimes:

Domestic Crimes - Home issues. Respond to a Home.

I've never heard of 5 either. I've only heard of welfare checks which is if someone is concerned for their neighbor/family/friend's well-being, but I've never heard of people calling the police just to check on their house.

And for #3 and 4, these are usually pay jobs which means they're not officially on duty and they are basically getting paid by the people holding the concert to be there in uniform.

Certain agencies do #5. I know the city of Monterey Park in California (A *FULL* service city) does these type of checks, but they refer to them as "Extra Patrol", they usually just drive or stop and physically observe the house. They rarely get these type of calls though and generally there has to be reason along with why they want their house checked. (increase of burglaries in the area or w/e it may be)

Yeah. Here in Ga, they do them. My girlfriend is a dispatcher for a local department and they get those calls from time to time. Usually in higher end neighborhoods tho.

But hey, these are all ideas! Who knows what someone could come up with.

Oh ok, I see. Yeah, I think that would definitely be a neat call, as would all of these. If we will get any of them, I'm not sure, but escorts and Welfare Check would be easy enough to code I think.

Yeah, I saw that too. Really was hoping there would AT LEAST be some sort of update since then, but no...
