Summer Work

Most of you know that I work in the school-house, and during the summer, they've got to find us something to do if we don't have enough leave time.  I injured myself last January, and missed the whole basketball season at the high school, so I owe the Sheriff some time.  I went this morning to report for assignment, and they assigned me to Courthouse Security.

It's not bad duty, running a metal detector and working with some great folks.  Lots of laughter, lots of interesting facts, and lots of time on my feet.  It is 8:00-4:30, so that ain't bad either.  I'm there when the unlock the doors to the Courthouse and I'm there when they lock them.  And I look at everybody who comes in the door.  It probably won't be an assignment where I make many arrests, but I'm in air-conditioning and I enjoy the work.  Two out of three ain't bad..

This was my last assignment before I retired. I loved it.

Most months, I had the best arrest record in Uniform Division, due to warrant service and arrests on a Judge's order. Tip: get some serious Bates footgear. Eight hours on feet on concrete will get to your feet, knees and back.

I hear ya, Rivrdog. I've been wearing Bates boots for 10 years. One new pair every six months. Not that they're worn out, but that new boots don't get worn out.
