13 Secret Tricks Every Police Officer Uses

Have you ever engaged in a pleasant conversation
with a police officer who stopped you on the road? If you have, then you’ve probably given
them a lot of useful info without even realizing it. The police have much more up their sleeves
than you might think, and a superhero arsenal is just one of many of those things! But first things first… You’re guilty until proven otherwise
Ever heard of presumption of innocence? Well, it might work in some countries, but
in many places around the globe it’s the other way around. When you’re stopped by a police officer
who’s accusing you of something, you’d better recall your alibi, and fast. The thing is, even if you are presumed innocent
by the laws of the country you’re in, when dealing with the police, you have to be extra
cautious not to get yourself in trouble. This especially concerns road traffic regulations:
in most countries, they’re really tricky, and without knowing them to a T, you might
get fined when you actually haven’t done anything wrong. Patting your trunk isn’t just a random gesture
While we’re on the topic of the road police, if you’re a driver, you must’ve noticed
how police officers touch the trunk or tail light of your car when they pull you over. If you thought it was something of a signature
move, you’re in for a surprise: this way, the officer is leaving their fingerprints
on your car. They would serve as evidence if something
happened to the officer during your conversation. There’s another reason for tapping your
tail light too: if the driver’s pulled over and trying to hide something, the sound of
the tap will startle them, giving the police officer additional moments to approach the
front of the car and see what they’re not supposed to see, in driver’s opinion. So, two birds with one stone. Sirens have different modes for different
situations You’ve heard all of them if you live in
a city or at least watched a movie involving police chase. But have you ever asked yourself why a police
car would need four different blares? In fact, there’s a good reason for that. Some modes are better for certain circumstances
than others. For example, on a long stretch of the road,
the “wail” mode (that long woo sound) is best because it can be heard from a distance. Before an intersection or among tall buildings,
the “yelp” mode, which has a faster beat, is used because it bounces off the surrounding
walls better. The “hi-lo” mode can be used in different
situations, but it’s generally reserved for dense traffic. And finally, the air horn is a short, low
blare used to scare off inattentive drivers. See? Simple and useful! Cops and donuts aren’t like PB&J
The “cops love donuts” stereotype has become so omnipresent that many police officers
even stay away from donut shops at all costs not to feed the myth. In fact, the reason why this common belief
even appeared has nothing to do with pastry. It’s all about coffee. Police officers often work night shifts, and
there’s basically no other place they could take a coffee break at this time but a donut
shop. More often than not, they don’t even take
donuts, just a cup of hot black stuff to keep them up. They can and will lie to you to get your confession
You probably know the “good cop, bad cop” strategy from the movies, but what you perhaps
don’t realize is that the police officers’ job when they have you brought to the office
is to get as much information from you as possible. And they have a legal right to do it by lying
in your face. The only thing they’re not allowed to do
is making your confession involuntary. That means they can’t threaten you or do
anything to make you confess not of your own free will, but they absolutely can trick you
into confessing. If you’re indeed guilty, that is. Act first, talk later
In the US, if 911 receives a call that potentially requires immediate action, they will send
out a SWAT team that will first break down the door and put everyone on the floor, and
only then ask questions. The good thing here is that a real danger
to other people would be promptly eliminated by the police. The downside? Well, if you’ve been pranked and someone
called 911 and gave your address, you’d be the one kissing your own floor for no good
reason. This practice is called “swatting,” and
it’s been gaining alarming popularity among the stupid people in the recent years. To expose people to high risk (both the police
and the innocent occupants) merely for a prank, is a sure sign that there is no intelligent
life behind it. The thin blue line
You may have seen this symbol on the streets but never paid much attention to it. In fact, it’s a sign to all the members
of the police out there that here’s a supporter. The police actually have a sort of a brotherhood,
and you can’t blame them for that: their job is dangerous, and they really risk their
lives every day. They need any help they can get, and the thin
blue line is a universal symbol that says, “I’m here, I’m with you.” For example, police officers off duty can
wear this symbol somewhere on their clothes, and if something happens when they’re around,
they’ll know each other from afar and help other members of their “brotherhood” when
necessary. They care for each other
Don’t get me wrong: I’m not talking favoritism or something. It’s just that, once again, the job the
police do is a dangerous one. And who else would stand up for them if not
their colleagues and friends? As soon as one of them gets into trouble,
others will try to get them out of there. But they always remember that reputation of
the whole police force is at stake, and it sometimes is a rather difficult choice: whether
to help your fellow officer who made a misstep and risk the public opinion, or to save the
law enforcement’s reputation but leave your colleague in need. We’re all human, after all. What would you do in such a situation? Let me know down in the comments! A friendly chat is not what it seems
When a police officer stops you on the road for no obvious reason, what’s your first
reaction? Me, I usually get kinda rigid inside, thinking
I’ve made some major mistake and they’re gonna put me face down on the hood of my car. See, I’ve watched too much TV. In most cases, it’s all much friendlier
than that. The officer approaches you and asks you a
couple of pretty innocent questions, like where you’re going from and where you’re
headed. You might relax at this point and answer truthfully,
but be aware that your information may be used by the police to their own ends. For instance, if it’s a party you’re going
from, they’ll know that someone just might be drinking and driving out there. That’s how you help the law without even
knowing it! They wear superhero belts
This is no joke, guys: a police officer on duty is equipped more or less like Batman. They’ll have everything from handcuffs and
a radio to a whole arsenal needed to take down criminals on the run. The only thing that’s not on their super-belt
are the keys from the Batmobile. It’s probably just too expensive to give
every beat cop one. But hey, I bet we’d all be much safer if
they did drive those things! Most of what they do is paperwork
Having seen lots of detective shows and movies, I’ve always thought the police had a life
full of thrill and excitement, chasing criminals and stuff. But in fact, like almost everyone else, they
have to do lots of boring things. Filing documents, filling in some blanks,
compiling reports, and so on. I can’t help yawning even saying this stuff
out loud! So, if you’ve ever considered a job in the
police force because of all the romantic atmosphere, well, think again. They know everything and more about you
If you have a friend in the police, you’d be surprised at how much they already know
about you — even if you didn’t tell them anything. Whenever you leave your fingerprints — say,
to obtain a passport, — you become part of the police database in that same instant. Also, police cars are equipped with cameras
that automatically read your license plates, take your picture, and put your geolocation
on the map. After that, the file the camera snapped is
stored in the archive, well, pretty much forever. So yeah, the police do know what you did last
summer. They’re cynical for a reason
It’s a common belief that most police officers are quite cynical. Well, in truth, the same can be said about
any professional working with people on the daily basis. Doctors, firefighters, lawyers, insurance
agents — you name it. Anyone who’s constantly dealing with other
people’s problems inevitably builds an emotional wall between themselves and the rest of the
world. Think of it as a protective mechanism. Like I said, it’s a tough but highly important
job, and I’m glad for the good people who are doing it. Me, hey I crashed my SUV on a high mountain
road one time during extremely bad weather. Luckily I wasn’t hurt, and I was so happy
to see the officer arrive, help me out of the wrecked vehicle and make sure I was alright. Only then, did he write me a ticket. True story. So what’s been your experience with law
enforcement? Let me know down in the comments! Hey, if you learned something new today, then

  1. For the 5 minute gender equality commercial that just passed…Female gender equality might be 208 U.S. years, which translates into 1,400 doggie years, but have you ever thought what that translates into Arab/Muslim years? I consulted the Koran & my female palm reader, & the answer was the same, it translates into NEVER! I am greatful that some of my off spring will have a chance.

  2. where did you get your information from? it's false. the tap is false you wouldn't even hear the tap from the drivers seat and majority of officers don't do it. it's a old technique from back in the 70's but isn't used because of a car wash. what actually happens is your license plate is called into dispatch and is recorded in case something happens. you're also wrong about the thin blue line and it's meaning. if you know what a sheepdog is then you would understand black is sheep"civilians" blue is "officers" other side of black is wolfs "criminals" the blue is the line that separates the sheep from the wolves also officers don't wear the thin blue line in public so if there's a incident the officer shows his badge or says he's a cop. most civilians have the thin blue line on there car just want to act like a leo or supports leo's but want special treatment… another thing is the camera system is wrong. not every patrol car has a ALPR only patrol cars with ALPR record your plate and location but it does not take a picture of it also most patrol vehicles only have one camera which records when the light bar is activated (dash cam)

  3. Military personnel do more for less then the police! Cops do it the bucks, and the benefits. Military people do it because they are patriots!

  4. Chastity Hollingsworth

    So brotherhood.known racist.and assumes everyone they met thats not one of them is guilty of something…so right not all cops right?

  5. When a Superior is with other Subordinates, the Subordinates will LIE in their Reports to Match their Superiors Report (Which was Also a LIE); EVEN IF, they did NOT deal with You in ANY WAY, SHAPE or FORM. And they were NOWHERE NEAR to HEAR or SEE what occurred.

    Up to that Point, I respected Police Officers. Now I have a disdain for them. To be FAIR, I NEVER had ANY PROBLEMS in MIAMI, FL. I’d heard of things like this happening and seen it on TV, but having NEVER experienced it before I did NOT think much of it.

    It was NOT until I personally had to deal with the situation aforementioned in PEACHTREE CITY, GA that I Learned the HARSH TRUTH.

  6. I used to watch this channel, but no more. Absolutely everything in this video is complete B.S., except for one fact. That fact is that many years ago when nothing was open late, yes cops used to frequent donut shops to get coffee when working the midnight shift. Everything else is nonsense.

  7. My experience has been good 🙂👍, belonging to a third world country.

    Our cops are nicer,coz they haven't trained in Israel.

  8. My grandpa was a Police Lieutenant, and he arrested the first Bank robber at deposit National Bank, back in 79, he did a lot of things that I can tell

  9. I spent 21 years in the military, of those, 6 years was spent as a cop. I enjoyed those days and the interaction I had with people good and bad. As a cop you learn somethings about the nature of men, others aren't privy too. The good side, the bad side, the black and white of situations and my favorite, the gray areas. Those gray areas where no written law has been violated, but integrity and a moral line has been crossed; in these areas I must seek to move the Law Enforcement agency out of harms way and let my fellow officer stand on his reputation, with my moral support. There are always degrees and levels of circumstances to be considered. Did the officer act intentional, did he attempt to cover it up from you, was it his immediate intention to do the right thing, was anyone hurt. Was anyone hurt should probably be the first question.

  10. The cops I ran into are pretty nice as long as you tell them the truth. But at the same time they take you into an Askquestions You don't have to answer.

  11. I return from work at 1 am and the cops at that time check for DUI.
    Some cops will say hi and thank you and some are stone cold, not say a word but you will get the point that you are fine.

  12. "They can trick you into confessing….If you're guilty, that is." You don't need to have committed a crime to be tricked into confessing. They can twist your words into a "confession". Say the fewest words possible. Always

    Got pulled over one day driving my first car. The officer asked me to open the trunk and I told him that while I have owned the car for two weeks that even I haven't seen the inside of the trunk. He then asked 'so you don't even know if you have a spare tire?' which I replied 'I don't even know if I have a jack for it'. He looked at me baffled but he found it humorous that all the time he was in service he never encountered a car owner that hasn't looked in the trunk of own car after purchase. Good thing was I had everything and all papers were in order. 😋

  14. People say I pay your paycheck and that's wrong we get paid from bonds and tickets and we work for county or the city or the state not for the public . We also pay taxes so w are no different them the rest of the public

  15. These are just the basics. There are levels to the game. It comes down to business. You know that saying, 'don't hate the player, hate the game'? Basically you gotta speak with your actions or else you're all talk. Just saying. It's all business, and all business is lip service. Everything these days is one big business doing a lot of little business with a lot of little businesses to keep everybody in business. Sure, there's a lot of details and intricacies but that's none of your business so stay busy and just enjoy the simple things. Everybody is actually two people: you're 1) who you have to be to be able to be 2) who you really are. Simplicity is the key to contentment and happiness, which ultimately is success. Simplify the simple and just simply be.

  16. The common practice of chard stacking by police and prosecutors make it so that only 10% of Americans receive a trial, and innocent citizens are forced into plea bargain even if they are 100% innocent. Police are responsible for thousands of killings every year both directly and indirectly through incarcerating millions of Americans fall asleep through the practice of charge stacking.

  17. Why is it that white America is forever trying to glorify that thuggish organization known as law enforcement???
    If you have them tell it, everyone are criminals except law enforcement…

  18. So, you're giving away cops secrets… why?
    If people weren't idiots they wouldn't need to know these things.
    Last time.

  19. Yeah. I’ve seen their buddy system. A nurse with an ex husband that was a cop wasn’t arrested for elder abuse even though it was on video. Yep. Stop speeders on the road but let off someone who abuses a disabled elderly person. Sorry no respect for the police force. Just as bad as the injustice in the government.

  20. The United States has less than 5% of the world's population but nearly 25% of the world's prison population. For better or worse, cops are what make that possible.

  21. When I see a police officer I get so scared. Even knowing I've done literally nothing bad. Gosh I'm just so scared.

  22. So true police lie like the devil.The always swear that theyou do the right thing. Covered up child molestation(Amanda Jo Lovell allowed her daughter to be molested). Amanda Jo Lovell, Benjamin Troiano drug dealers, addicts, prostitutes, dumping bodies of those who overdosed and Howard County Police came after me and told me to plead guilty and they'll stop assaulting and harassing me. Howard County Police said they didn't know I worked and demanded that I tell them when I go places. That's really meseed up. They allow the drug dealers to go free.

  23. That's a shame public servants can legally lie just to find some info out on a subject. And, we're to trust them? No thank you. 👎 I don't favor corruption and someone who lies. Lieing is simply put…wrong, period!

  24. Cops not only get coffee at donut shops, but also donuts. They rely on the sugar, and complex carbohydrates in the pastry to give them energy and stamina. It is also a quick meal when you are on the go. They are not the healthiest food, but quick and easy.

  25. Again with the missleading titles! Not every police officer does these things.. Not even close! Here in my country they don't touch the car and they have to be 2 in the car. And sirens are not the same in all countries. Here they don't have a thin blue line either.. And they know very little about me. And here they won't even have any fingerprint unless you actually did a pretty serious crime.. Get the facts right before posting. Getting tired of the lack of fact checking now.. Unsubscribing from this BS channel

  26. They push on the trunk just not for fingerprints like many people think, it’s also used to make sure the trunk isn’t slightly open where someone can pop out and ambush a police officer.

  27. Fact: being a policeman doesn’t rank in the top 10 for most dangerous jobs. A convenient store clerk is more dangerous. So thank you Apu and I will come again
