Blogville Pawlice Academy - Answers to Your Questions

First, we are thrilled to report that we reached 100 followers this week! YAY!

Now to answer your questions and comments.

From Hailey's Class:

Angus said "your jail kinda sounds like our home". - The purpose of our jail will be rehabilitation. We want to be fair and kind to others.

Bella, Roxy and Dui asked "They get chicken and rice?" That is what is currently on the menu cause that is what I could get at Costco. The flavour may change, but it will be something like that.

Whitley said "Can I steal some chicken and rice?" I highly discourage members of the police force from stealing. You don't want to end up on the wrong side of the law. There is plenty of good food in the cafeteria for the police force, so I suggest going there for a visit when you are hungry.

Top Cop Bites asked "did you have to entice any of the Juniors with donuts." After years of living with a behaviour analyst, I did use positive reinforcement to help the juniors learn.

Princess Leah asked if she could volunteer for shredding duties. When it is time to shred, I will call for volunteers. We will make day out of it.

Charlie is concerned about the amount of paperwork. If you put ticks in the boxes throughout the shift, it will be easy to count. There are also some good data taking apps we can look at learning to help.

Do I have to log every donut? The answer is you have to log everyone you eat while awake. We need these numbers to make sure we have enough made daily for the force.

Riley asked if he could nap with the prisoners and if he needed to bring his own blanket. At least one guard needs to be awake and on duty at all times. We will work out a schedule that ensures everyone gets the naps they need. We have a full equipped nap room, so while you can bring a special bed or blanket, it is not required.

KB asked if we read them their rights. This is a topic that was covered in Phod's class on Thursday and yes we do. She also asked if Easy got out. After a nap, we let him out!

Sully and Pierre reminded us that we need to search the mouths of those we arrest. I didn't make that clear, but we will give them a full nose to tail search.

Finley is worried the squirrels will be able to escape through the bars and wants to shake them instead. While, I appreciate your desire to shake a squirrel, in Blogville we are going to try and be fair. We do have special cells for smaller creatures, the one we used for our demonstration was for larger ones.

From Zaphod's Class

Dui  and Princess Leah asked if he could have a cookie too while integrating suspects. Of course, one can't work on an empty stomach.

Whitley is concerned all the cookies will get eaten during the interrogations. If you are concerned, make sure to take the suspect back to the precinct. Hailey has a HUGE supply there. You know when you watch the show extreme couponing and they have rooms of stuff, imagine all of that cookies and imagine it 87 million times bigger.

Princess Leah asked if she could have a puppicinio to wash down her cookie? As long as it doesn't interfere with your duties, go crazy!

Ojo and Cobi wonder if the fruit cookies could work. I know there are some who may find these things to be food (for example Hailey) but those of us who don't think poop is a food group, would not enjoy such a thing. Therefore, fruit cookies can be used with caution.

Ruby is upset there are no margaritas on the job. Save those for your off time Ruby.

Riley wants to know if we can torment our peeps with the new flashy beasts. While they are meant for official pawlice business, one does have to master their use, so it may be necessary to practice A LOT at home.

Finley again would like to shake the squirrels. Finley, I think you need an extra sensitivity class. Bites, Ranger, we better set that up.

Charlie wants to know if a suspect doesn't cooperate still, what can he do. These are advanced interrogation techniques that will be used by senior officers only.

Where are the donuts? We had some, but they gotten eaten. Sasha and Speedy are bringing more over in a minute.

Good luck on your tests recruits!

  3. Some great questions from the recruits in your classes, pals! It seems many are concerned with the amount of donuts...I figured that would be an issue. BOL And I am with Finley...if we ever do get to shaking some squirrels, I am glad to help in a non-official manner. :-)

  4. Wow, super Q&A session today! The recruits are asking all kinds of really good questions, though I noticed lots of them tend toward their own foodables. BOL That's alright, they're young and we'll always be well-supplied with snackers in the Blogville PD. Thanks bunches for the excellent training!
