police officers catch criminals they collect evidence they sometimes testify in court some direct traffic
The following is written by and according to the U.S. Department of Labor and particular to the work of a police officer. People depend on police officers and detectives to protect their lives and property. Law enforcement officers, some of whom are State or Federal special agents or inspectors, pe…rform these duties in a variety of ways depending on the size and type of their organization. In most jurisdictions, they are expected to exercise authority when necessary, whether on or off duty. Police and detectives pursue and apprehend individuals who break the law and then issue citations or give warnings. A large proportion of their time is spent writing reports and maintaining records of incidents they encounter. Most police officers patrol their jurisdictions and investigate any suspicious activity they notice. Detectives, who are often called agents or special agents, perform investigative duties such as gathering facts and collecting evidence. The daily activities of police and detectives differ depending on their occupational specialty-such as police officer, game warden, or detective-and whether they are working for a local, State, or Federal agency. Duties also differ substantially among various Federal agencies, which enforce different aspects of the law. Regardless of job duties or location, police officers and detectives at all levels must write reports and maintain meticulous records that will be needed if they testify in court. Uniformed police officers have general law enforcement duties, including maintaining regular patrols and responding to calls for service. Much of their time is spent responding to calls and doing paperwork. They may direct traffic at the scene of an accident, investigate a burglary, or give first aid to an accident victim. In large police departments, officers usually are assigned to a specific type of duty. Many urban police agencies are involved in community policing-a practice in which an officer builds relationships with the citizens of local neighborhoods and mobilizes the public to help fight crime. Police agencies are usually organized into geographic districts, with uniformed officers assigned to patrol a specific area such as part of the business district or outlying residential neighborhoods. Officers may work alone, but in large agencies, they often patrol with a partner. While on patrol, officers attempt to become thoroughly familiar with their patrol area and remain alert for anything unusual. Suspicious circumstances and hazards to public safety are investigated or noted, and officers are dispatched to individual calls for assistance within their district. During their shift, they may identify, pursue, and arrest suspected criminals; resolve problems within the community; and enforce traffic laws. Some agencies have special geographic jurisdictions and enforcement responsibilities. Public college and university police forces, public school district police, and agencies serving transportation systems and facilities are examples. Most law enforcement workers in special agencies are uniformed officers; a smaller number are investigators. Some police officers specialize in a particular field, such as chemical and microscopic analysis, training and firearms instruction, or handwriting and fingerprint identification. Others work with special units, such as horseback, bicycle, motorcycle, or harbor patrol; canine corps; special weapons and tactics (SWAT); or emergency response teams. A few local and special law enforcement officers primarily perform jail-related duties or work in courts. (For information on other officers who work in jails and prisons, see correctional officers elsewhere in the Handbook .) Sheriffs and deputy sheriffs enforce the law on the county level. Sheriffs are usually elected to their posts and perform duties similar to those of a local or county police chief. Sheriffs' departments tend to be relatively small, most having fewer than 50 sworn officers. Deputy sheriffs have law enforcement duties similar to those of officers in urban police departments. Police and sheriffs' deputies who provide security in city and county courts are sometimes called bailiffs State police officers , sometimes called State troopers or highway patrol officers , arrest criminals Statewide and patrol highways to enforce motor vehicle laws and regulations. State police officers often issue traffic citations to motorists. At the scene of accidents, they may direct traffic, give first aid, and call for emergency equipment. They also write reports used to determine the cause of the accident. State police officers are frequently called upon to render assistance to other law enforcement agencies, especially those in rural areas or small towns. State law enforcement agencies operate in every State except Hawaii. Most full-time sworn personnel are uniformed officers who regularly patrol and respond to calls for service. Others work as investigators, perform court-related duties, or carry out administrative or other assignments. Detectives are plainclothes investigators who gather facts and collect evidence for criminal cases. Some are assigned to interagency task forces to combat specific types of crime. They conduct interviews, examine records, observe the activities of suspects, and participate in raids or arrests. Detectives and State and Federal agents and inspectors usually specialize in investigating one type of violation, such as homicide or fraud. They are assigned cases on a rotating basis and work on them until an arrest and conviction is made or until the case is dropped. Fish and game wardens enforce fishing, hunting, and boating laws. They patrol hunting and fishing areas, conduct search and rescue operations, investigate complaints and accidents, and aid in prosecuting court cases. The Federal Government works in many areas of law enforcement. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents are the Government's principal investigators, responsible for investigating violations of more than 200 categories of Federal law and conducting sensitive national security investigations. Agents may conduct surveillance, monitor court-authorized wiretaps, examine business records, investigate white-collar crime, or participate in sensitive undercover assignments. The FBI investigates a wide range of criminal activity, including organized crime, public corruption, financial crime, bank robbery, kidnapping, terrorism, espionage, drug trafficking, and cyber crime. There are many other Federal agencies that enforce particular types of laws. U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents enforce laws and regulations relating to illegal drugs. U.S. marshals and deputy marshals protect the Federal courts and ensure the effective operation of the judicial system. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives agents enforce and investigate violations of Federal firearms and explosives laws, as well as Federal alcohol and tobacco tax regulations. The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Diplomatic Security special agents are engaged in the battle against terrorism. The Department of Homeland Security also employs numerous law enforcement officers within several different agencies, including Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the U.S. Secret Service. U.S. Border Patrol agents protect more than 8,000 miles of international land and water boundaries. Immigration inspectors interview and examine people seeking entrance to the United States and its territories. Customs inspectors enforce laws governing imports and exports by inspecting cargo, baggage, and articles worn or carried by people, vessels, vehicles, trains, and aircraft entering or leaving the United States. Federal Air Marshals provide air security by guarding against attacks targeting U.S. aircraft, passengers, and crews. U.S. Secret Service special agents and U .S. Secret Service uniformed officers protect the President, Vice President, their immediate families, and other public officials. Secret Service special agents also investigate counterfeiting, forgery of Government checks or bonds, and fraudulent use of credit cards. Other Federal agencies employ police and special agents with sworn arrest powers and the authority to carry firearms. These agencies include the Postal Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Law Enforcement, the Forest Service, and the National Park Service. Work environment. Police and detective work can be very dangerous and stressful. In addition to the obvious dangers of confrontations with criminals, police officers and detectives need to be constantly alert and ready to deal appropriately with a number of other threatening situations. Many law enforcement officers witness death and suffering resulting from accidents and criminal behavior. A career in law enforcement may take a toll on their private lives. The jobs of some Federal agents such as U.S. Secret Service and DEA special agents require extensive travel, often on very short notice. They may relocate a number of times over the course of their careers. Some special agents in agencies such as the U.S. Border Patrol work outdoors in rugged terrain for long periods and in all kinds of weather. Uniformed officers, detectives, agents, and inspectors are usually scheduled to work 40-hour weeks, but paid overtime is common. Shift work is necessary because protection must be provided around the clock. Junior officers frequently work weekends, holidays, and nights. Police officers and detectives are required to work whenever they are needed and may work long hours during investigations. Officers in most jurisdictions, whether on or off duty, are expected to be armed and to exercise their authority when necessary.

There are probably no departments anywhere that permit their officers to swear at individuals in the course of the officer's work. It is almost universally considered unprofessional conduct. What happens when an officer swears at a subject is another matter. For anything to happen, a complaint wil…l have to be filed against the officer. Anyone who witnessed the incident may be questioned or asked to fill out a report. Departments have ways to deal with complaints, and have people assigned to investigate them. Answer: Sometimes police and other law enforcement officials find people doing things so offensively stupid or vile that swearing is a reasonable alternative for what they really would like to do. Sometime they have become aware of the fac that their client group will not understand anything said to them unless it includes at least on cuss word every 10 seconds or so. Whether or not it is permitted is questionable. There would be some onus on the complainant to prove that he (or she) never used words like that themselves. Answer: Well, my brother is training to be a police officer, so I've read the handbook.. plus spoken to a police officer for a community talk - if your offending the police officer - annoying, insulting, or generally being a nusance, there is no such law saying they cant swear at you. But generally, you wouldn't just find a police officer wondering around swearing - they wouldn't be on great terms, but the answer to your question is Yes, a police officer can swear at you. (MORE)

The definition of branch ofice in traditional terms could mean, when a parent company decides to expand their business to another separate location. This location could be anywhere, whether the same state or different or even abroad.

I'm going to assume you mean "on the job." Generally speaking, a police officer answers calls that are sent to him/her, investigates crime, and enforces traffic laws or any other law that he/she sees being broken.
In most locations you are required to be certified by the state in order to have the sworn the powers of a law enforcement officer. This would include, classroom time, physical training, etc, etc. This is mainly due to the trainiing involved and liability issues for the hiring agency. Requirements f…or 'part-time' officers may vary slightly. You would have to contact the particular agency involved to ascertain this information. (MORE)
A police officer is any person who is authorized by a governmental entity or private entity specifically authorized by law (e.g., Amtrak and other railroads) to employ police officers. Most officers are required to complete training prescribed by a statewide standards organization (such as a Peace O…fficers Standards and Training Commission), meet certain physical, mental, and emotional standards, and take an oath of office. Police officers may be employed by their agency or volunteer, as in the case of auxiliary or reserve officers. In many states, part-time reserve or auxiliary officers have no police authority when off duty. (MORE)

Of course an MP can become a civilian police officer after military service. He or she applies just as one without any police experience would apply. He or she will go through the police academy as a recruit the same way as those without experience..

I'd say a police officer's nightstick is his most fun and fullfilling part, or maybe his gun ;)
When? It isn't illegal or anything yes they can. Added: Absolutely - and they can demand that you produce identification if they have reason to believe that you may be impersonating one.
Not much. Both receive training in firing weapons and self-defense and police tactics. Military Police are trained to guard military facilities and prisoners of war, whereas civilian police protect your home and private property and arrest and guard criminals. --- I actually disagree with the above …answer. It does depend on what branch of service you are asking about as each branch does things differently. However, as a former Air Force Security Forces member ( the Af's version of MP's), we are actually a lot like civilian police officers, if not a little more advanced. True we both attend basic training in weapons and police tactics as well as self defense, much of which is similar training. However, (speaking specifically of SF's) we are also trained in base security measures, ground combat measures, convoy maneuvers, heavy weapons training, hostile situation training ( i.e. base attacks). In addition to this training we are also trained in the local Law Enforcement procedures - arrest/detention; searches of people, buildings, vehicles, and property; questioning tactics; defensive/offensive driving..ect. So, at least as far as SF goes, we can do anything, if not more than, a civilian officer can do in terms of training and abilities. What we do not have is the authority to exorcise such training off the installation unless we are dealing with another military member. Most often, for a civilian officer to accomplish the training that we receive they have to attend specialized training in the field of interest, e.g - SWAT members usually have to apply and try out for the SWAT team and go through specialised training, where as..SF/MP's are already prepared in training to handle such situations. However, on most installations there are special teams formed for doing SWAT maneuvers so that other team members may focus more on the job(s) at hand during a crisis situation. The only differences between SF/MP's and civilian police officers is the difference of pay ( often civilian police officers start out at a much higher pay rate than any starting enlisted military member), and the risk they take on by wearing the uniform. Civilan police officers face risks every day in many ways, and sadly some do not make it home at the end of shift. SF/MP members often face some of the same risks as well, just not as frequent. They both face bank robbers, drug dealers, armed domestic situations, felony traffic stops, and just people simply not paying attention. However, SF/MP members are presented with a much larger threat that the civilian police force understands but rarely realizes how close that threat often is. SF/MP members also deploy into a much larger threat, where as civilian police do not. Ultimatly, in the view of a prior service member - the police protect the civilians from harm, while the SF/MP's protect the police from harm. (MORE)
If you are referring to "undercover" officers, plainclothes detectives, or "tactical old clothes" officers, they are not lying to anyone because they are not under oath to tell the truth.
Police want to know if you have a police record. Then they can look it up and see if you have a pattern of problems they need to be aware of.
Dispatchers log all of the police's activity. This log is kept because of court. Anything can happen and most likely will happen. The log shows the court every step that was taken. Dispatchers record everything that is said on the radio and what time it was said. It is a official document.
No. An undercover officer, in the performance of his duties, isallowed to deceive you. Edit: Any police officer is allowed to deceive you if investigatinga crime. And they are not necessarily required to provide theirname and badge number. If they are unformed, their name isgenerally on their shirt… of jacket, so, it's up to the personasking to figure it out. The officer is in no way required to writeit down for you or give you a business card. (MORE)
You may go to work for a police agency as a civilian at 18. Some departments (usually larger ones) even have a police cadet program. There are lots of jobs to do for the police like admin work or accounting or even a scientist!
If you have the phone fror one of the earlier islands, you can dial 911 to become dressed as a police officer.
In a democratic society, the population gives its consent to the government that it elects, and that government appoints police officers. Therefore, police power derives from the society in general. In a dictatorial society, police power derives only from their weapons, since social consent is not r…equired. (MORE)
This will vary depending upon the rules of the individual police force. Because of the physical demands of the job, it may not be allowed.
Give your head a shake Added: Absolutely not for a felony, and not even for certain misdemeanors.
It depends on t Most police and detectives work at least 40 hours a week. When they work longer, they get extra pay. Because police work is a 24-hour-a-day job, some police have to work nights and weekends. They have to be ready to go to work at all times. Police may work very long hours on a case.… Some have to travel a lot, often on short notice. he type of job you do but normallly around age 50-55 (MORE)
It depends on what you are referring to, however, in general, a non-police officer can work for or represent a polie agency, as long as that particular agency allows it.
Contact City Hall or the police department within your hometown and request a police misconduct form. Fill it out and return it.

No, not in the US. Under Federal law you cannot be in possession of a firearm. All states have separate prohibitions for felons being the police.
At home they can have any pets, but on the force many police forces use dogs to catch criminals
In most cases, yes. If the police in your area are armed then you would also be required to carry and qualify with firearms. However, this is not always the case. In countries such as those within the United Kingdom , the standard police officers are unarmed, with only trained Authorised Firear…ms Officers ever carrying firearms. This is occasionally true in the United States . For example, the Traffic Enforcement officers of the New York Police Department do not carry firearms. Additional Information : the un-armed traffic enforcement officers referred to above, although uniformed, are CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES of the department. Their authority is much the same as school crossing guards. They are NOT sworn law enforcement officers and do not possess the power of arrest. (MORE)

They usually have to do something heroic. . . and die doing it. They save lives, help against disaster, or protect members of the public or other police officers.
Police forces have many office duties, which include paperwork, answering questions over the phone, and interviews to conduct while in the office. The life of law enforcement is not 100% driving around busting lawbreakers.
Yes, because police officers protect people. ADDED: You may not be able to bring yourself to "respect" any one individual officer but the occupation itself should be respected.

Yes, they can be charged with assault or battery if the victim is another police officer. If the bad cop is a big bully and no one likes him/her, then it is more likely they will be charged or fired.
