I'm not a LEO but I have had the opportunity to listen (not talk) to the calls. Everyone is very professional and calm. What's strange and foreign to me is that even though the talkers are calm, there are certain calls/situations where it's clear to every officer (and lost on the untrained listener) that are more tense than others. It's suddenly expected that everyone clear the channel so the person in the situation doesn't get stepped on or have to wait for someone else to stop talking. it's apparently part of the learning process to be able to recognize it without being told. I think if I were a LEO, I'd be getting lots of text messages from sgts to stay off the radio. Probably the dispatchers too.

Jay: All right, I'm in. But there's one thing you gotta remember: You chose me..so you recognized the skills, so I don't want nobody calling me son or kid or sport or nothing like that, cool?
Kay: Cool, whatever you say, slick, but I need to tell you something about all your skills. As of right now, they mean precisely..d**k.
