First things first, this page last updated: May 17, 2005.............

I have been a police officer since 1975. Policing is a serious and sometimes dangerous business, but it sometimes has its lighter side. There are many stories generated in every Police Department worldwide, some of these are funny. I try and take the funnier stories, compose a poem about the incident, and post it around headquarters for all to see and get a laugh.

When I first started doing this, I thought my "victims" would be angry. Instead, I discovered, that some of them were keeping photocopies and framing them. Because of this, I felt that I could supply them with something better looking for display. I now print a copy on a very nice cloud background paper, sign it, and present it to each person named in a poem.

Over the years, while some people try to hide their story from me, others come forward and let me know about the incident. When I receive information deemed worthy of a poem, I go right to the source and confirm the facts. Nobody is immune to these poems. I have written about civilian members, Corporals, Sergeants, Inspectors, one or two about the Chief and even recently Bill Clinton, well at least his security entourage. In fact, I have been my own best victim with a total to date of sixteen incidents I've been involved in. I figured if I was picking on myself, nobody could fuss too much if I picked on them.

All of these stories are TRUE. They all happened as written (with minor adjustments here and there to make stories fit). Even the names have not been changed. These poems are available for your reading pleasure. Please enjoy and send me Email letting me know what you think of them.
