There is an apartment complex near me that used to let the county officers make use of an unoccupied apartment in exchange for extra patrols. They would go there and eat, use the bathroom, etc. One night on their simplex channel one of them complained there was no toilet paper in the apartment. Another replied "Well... can't you just drag your butt on the carpet like a dog does?"

Police dispatch: "Somebody stole the fire apparatus while they were working at the scene."
That happen here many years ago. Local PD caught up with the engine and came up on the countywide pursuit channel. I'm in pursuit of the stolen fire truck. We are at a breakneck speed of 15Mph. Driver is have difficulty keeping control.
They later used spike strips to flatten a front tire. One in custody.

Must have been a long, crazy night for this officer and he finally reached his breaking point...

Dispatch: caller states that there's a half naked white male sitting in his backyard making animal noises. Possibly high on drugs.

Officer" Ya think!?
I wonder if they were (meant to be) mating calls?
