Why is it that police officers can exceed the speed limit (by a lot) in marked & unmarked cop cars when clearly they aren't on a call or patroling????

I know someone will come back and say "how do you know they AREN'T on a call"....of course I can't definitively say they aren't.

But I know of a cop in NR that works in BR, and see him all the time (around the same time each morning), hauling a$$ down 190 on his way to work. He is CLEARLY not on patrol!!!!

Other than that, I notice cops speeding ALL the time!!!

What gives????

As long as they're not going to be held accountable, they'll drive 20, 30 miles over the speed limit without a second thought.

I'm a police officer and unless I'm headed on a call (I don't always have my lights on depending on what the call is) I drive within 5 mph of the posted speed limit.

You see a police officer speeding, and you think? I guess he is driving fast to nowhere. As a trooper you have 9 parishes to cover and most calls can take an hour or more to get to. As a Deputy you have a parish to cover that can take 30 to 40 minutes to arrive at a call. If you have to go from the Simmesport bridge to Lottie and you drive the speed limit, your looking at about an hour. When you call 911 you want someone there NOW. Well we try to get there NOW but your now and ours might be 40 miles away.
The next time people think about calling the police because your 3 year old won't get in the bath tub, think twice that you may be holding up an officer from responding to an emergency call where someone really needs help. But we all took an oath to serve and protect. That even means answering calls where parents can't raise their own children. So next time you see an officer going a little faster than you, odds are he's going to either save someone or raise someone's child.

What do you mean raise someone child?Alot of you need to raise your own.Sorry i didnot read the entire comment.I still have espect for the speeding and it pisses me off when people do not pull to the side to let you all pass because you never know but I feel you got offended and had to lash back about parenting children.Is that all you do?You probably racing to cover for your own or family/friends kids.That was not necessaRY.

Was not trying to put anyone down for the way they raise their kids. Was just making a point that we get stupid calls like that, that keep us from responding to emergency or serious calls. I guess I could have used another example of some other call. God knows we see it all. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. But I don't rush to the aid of family or friends. If they do the crime they do the time.

One other thing. I do raise my children. I've never called the police because my child wouldn't get in the bath tub, wouldn't get up for school or wouldn't come inside when I said so. I took care of it myself. We get these calls all of the time. It ties us up on things that don't need to be.
My children are kind, loving, respectful, caring and God fearing. I give them love and a home where they can feel loved and safe. I can't afford to go out and buy them 50,000 Z71 trucks with 20 inch lift kits and the best of everything on a police officers salary. But I knew that when I went into law enforcement. I'm just a very hard working person who takes care of my family the best I can. So please don't say that we need to take care of our children. Some may not, but by far most do. I'm sorry again. I wasn't trying to offend anyone. Was just giving an example.

Being a Police Officer or his/her spouse is a privilege, but it does not give you or anyone else the the right to break the law! I am a retired Deputy Sheriff and I am insulted by your statement, I knew I would be under paid and over critized, I wanted to make a difference in this parish. Yes, we put everything on the line and put up with torment and ridicule, but I knew what I was getting into, quit complaining and quit using you thin blue line sticker. This sticker means that you care about the community and its people, that you're proud to be a law officer. It was never intended to get anyone out of trouble. If you are really the wife of a law officer you would know that! Nothing gives anyone the right to break the law!

We owe taxes to feed every welfare case...I don't abuse the thin line sticker. I'm proud to be the wife of an officer. I'm just sick of disrespectful people who are so rude towards officers. Tired of druggies and people who break law constantly. As they say its job security

Mrs Cop Wife : The thin blue line stickers are not to get out of things. There just to let other officers know there is an officer or the family of an officer in the car. It's to show your support to the law enforcement community. Have you ever seen the certified diver plates on cars? That doesn't give them the right to pull over on the interstate and go scuba diving in the ditch, or walk through your yard and dive in your pool. So how does a little sticker give you the right to break the law. You need to ask your husband if he agrees with your comment.

I don't break the law, yes I do speed here and there, but the officers just smile and let me go, I'm not worried about getting a ticket, i support every LEO out there. Like I said I'm just sick of people bashing officers for no reason. Don't break the law you won't get in trouble period

First of all I have to comment on your confidence about never getting a ticket!! Do you think you are special because you are supposedly who you say you are,("Cops wife")? If you are, then you should not have even put your input on here because it made you look like an ASS!! Secondly, you should also know that you are supposed to be obeying the laws just like everyone else has to! And you are not since you speed! So with that said, you don't deserve to even have a thin blue line sticker since you don't know what the true meaning is and what it represents!! Also, your turn will come and you will get a ticket!!
