The department of the Police Bureau in every country is the first and foremost organization of force that keeps the nation in balance with law and order. The discipline and the duty they partake for their fellow countrymen is beyond comparison to anything else.
When we think about the police, all we picture is the crime-fighting, active and strong-willed men and women saving the world every day. Which is true very true, but if we dig in deep there are many much simpler things that we may fail to understand how a police department works on a normal basis. The system has a lot of steps that we aren’t aware of, but we are here to educate you guys so just sit back and keep reading.
1. The brotherhood among the P.D is very strong.
So, the men in force have a secret society where they have their own set of rules and regulation. Its main aim is to strengthen the brethren among the officers and keep intact with the service and security within their respective departments. They have their own logo and everything, helping each other in every need.
2. They always stick out for one another.
Yes, we have seen this a lot in the movies, partners often cover up for each other if they create a problem by mistake which is okay to let it pass by.
3. Proving your innocence is the only way to get out of trouble.
If a cop catches you in some suspicious situation they have all the rights to find you guilty unless you prove your innocence in court. So, everything you say is important and fragile.
4. On the contrary, they can’t just arrest a person without evidence.
Only if they caught a person during the time of the crime or if they have a visual witness then only they can arrest a person. Plus the right to remain silent is used only when they need to interrogate someone which is done in the presence of an arrest warrant.
5. Call them whatever you want but they have to be unbiased towards everything.
The law binds them to be totally neutral and cynical, soo if they are rude, that’s their job profile. Friends and family will not be entertained if a case is being filed against them.
6. Here is the reason why a cop touches the trunk when they ask you to pull over.
In a crime where there is a vehicle involve this particular step makes it’s faster to process. But touching the car they leave their fingerprints which may serve as a hard evidence, they also do this to check if the trunk is empty or not.
7. The S.W.A.T team in action.
When there is a serious matter where lives are in danger and only enforcement and high intelligence can do the job, that’s when the swat team comes in. And here’s how it works, ‘Shoot first, ask later’.
8. Yes, they have every information about you.
All the data and information we input on any internet source and devices fall into one big pit of collection where the force can check and utilize whenever they want to trace any address or individual.
9. It’s not only the running part there is office duty too.
A heap of paperwork and documentation is involved in every case that’s being filed. It’s not that easy as you think. Everything is registered and stored manually.
10. The donut thing is not entirely true.
Police officers work for 12 hours every day where they have to remain alert and active all the time. So, they need caffeine, and the donut is just an extra side they fall prey to.
11. If you think you’re having a convo with a police, he is doing his duty.
And that convo is called the nice version of interrogation, where they’ll chat with you and ask you random questions but they are secretly doing their job.
12. They have ways of getting their answer.
They can trick you with their words and get away with the information they want by twisting their questions, do not underestimate the police department.
13. The self-defense mechanism.
In the field, if it is required, a police can fire his arms for self-defense, which is a rule in most countries.
14. The siren of the police cars.
These sirens are one of the main identity of the police department. Also, there are different types of sirens for different occasions.
15. The police belt for when in action.
The gadgets placed on this belt are of maximum use when they are on field fighting crimes, a radio, handcuffs, flashlights, powerful tasers, a pepper spray or a knife, a gun and ammo, a folding club, a pen, a pencil, and keys.
