My 1970’s NYPD Rules for Rookies   Leave a comment

That’s me on the right in the late 70’s with my partner Henry outside the 83 precinct

Here are few simple rules that I would give to a rookie cop on his first days. I will explain why each rules applies. This not all the rules but a simple start since most rookies come out of the academy pretty simple.

1. Although it looks really cute when you see it, never let kids try on your hat.


Because when you get it back in may be inhabited. If you do decide to do it you could end up scratching your head about it.

2.  Don’t fool around with the hookers.


In the movies they look like Jane Fonda, Jamie Lee Curtis and Julia Roberts. They are clean and smart and nice. In real life they are mostly low life junkies. Usually uglier than a baboons ass but they don’t smell as good. If you do decide to fool around with them you will regret it. They don’t even have crabs they have lobsters.

3. When responding to an active crime stay off the lights and siren.


All you are doing is telling the perps to run or take hostages. Be careful driving there but try to be quiet too.

4. Don’t ever pick up the call box phone or open your car door either police car or private car parked near the station house without looking at it first.


If you do it you may find that someone has smeared dog shit on them. The car door handle is bad enough but when someone would put the call box phone to his ear and get a load of dog shit it was not a good feeling.

That was originally for call box phones but also applies to your car door handles.

That’s it for now. Maybe I’ll add more later or just move on to something else.
