What are some of the biggest myths you guys have come across?

Here's a good one: "For every arrest the police make, the station gets a bonus" :alright:

So what's the deal with those traffic ticket "quotas" that explain why I'm more likely to get one near the end of the month?

Myth: "you'll make a difference"

Or " boots on the ground are the backbone of the force"

Lol

"Cops like to arrest people" - I'm sure you guys love the stack of paperwork that comes with it too no?
"All cops are jackasses that love to shoot people down and hand out tickets" - and yes, all members of the public are criminals.

It's such a shame this is what is being brought up in society.

Don't forget the "police state" and "brutality"

All this BS until they need help. Then, all is forgotten for the time being.

I was always told that "for 5 minutes of action, there's at least 45 minutes of paperwork" by a few officers.

I didn't believe it until I was with an officer during an event, him and I carried out a drunk, aggressive, male who eventually got cuffed and put in the wagon.
I spent the next 45 minutes in his cruiser while he typed up the report.

Myth.. Confirmed...

Used to figure the time required to process an impaired....from first stop to the completed RCC would take about 8 hours. That is assuming there were no complicating factors like a MVI attached. Court time was extra.

8 hours would be the high point, if it's a straight to the point impaired, from stop to court packages done and in for review, 3-4 hours. If not bothered by anything else lol...which never happens.

With video (and entire file) quadruplication? That is what we did on F1907 - Crown, Defence, Court Liaison / Detachment covering scene (even if Municipal PS area) plus our Unit back-up / review. We made a Master file containing the sealed envelope with original QT documents that we sent to the Det.
