    Quick, anyone.

    From which episode of TAGS (“The Andy Griffith Show” for non-afficianados) does that picture of Barney originate?

    Terry – Det. Hussey has a wonderful sense of humor. I always enjoy reading his posts on your site.

    Joyce – The only consistent thing about law enforcement is it’s inconsistency.

    Elena – Yes, that’s Fred Gwynne (Herman Munster) as Officer Francis Muldoon in Car 54 Where Are You?.

    ROTFL – Loved them all, especially the informational signage.

    Can’t stand it – is the taller of the “city boys” the actor who played Herman Munster?

    In the township where I worked, “county” could mean a couple of things.

    Dispatch, which is county wide, was often referred to as county on the radio. (“21xx (officer’s badge no.)–county. I’ll be seven for lunch.”)

    It was also used when there was a suspicious death or homicide. “Call the county and the M.E.” Most of the townships around here don’t have their own homicide units.

    These are great, Lee. You and Detective Hussey should get together and put out the complete dictionary of copspeak. When he shared his version on my blog, he included the “non-report” language, which was hysterical.
