Ed. Note: Tan uniforms are prospective officers still in training. Recently, I’ve been getting a number of emails asking about what the tan uniforms mean.

Your captions in the comments and winners (free PoP t-shirts, onesies or tote bags) picked Friday. If you find a caption particularly funny be sure to let me know in the comments so I can select a reader pick too.

    And here, cadets, we have the office coffee machine.

    You can normally make shoplifting busts at the 7:11, just after 4:20.

    “pizza is foundational to successful crime fighting. Have you seen the original Ninja Turtles movie, me, I’ve see at at least 500 times. The turtles are my inspiration and Splinter is my sensei. I suggest you find something to believe in. This job only gets tougher. Johnson! Stop tweeting what I’m saying and pay attention!”

    “So this here is where we go when the Dunkin’ is closed, see. The strawberry glazed is good, but stay away from the chocolate, and any meat on a roller.”

    “Back when I started, pizza was only one dollar a slice and you had to walk over a mile to get a slice. Now you can get one around every corner… damn gentrification”

    Now, if you set your foot up in this spot right here, you have just the perfect amount of intimidation and laissez-faire attitude we’re looking for. This works at all 7-11s in the District, by the way.

  • Mug of Glop

    “A pizza deal so ridiculously good it’s suspicious!”

    • Mug of Glop

      “Suspicious pizza at suspicious prices.”

    “This is not a Drill”

    Now that this pizza sign is secure, let’s secure the garbage can next. Synchronize your watches for 07:11 or 19:11 hours.

    Who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters determine citizens confused a Slurpee spill with Slimer goo.

  • timmyp

    OK take this down, they give the taquitos away for free once they hit the week mark.

  • Steve

    Alright guys let’s sit tight here and keep our eyes peeled for loiterers

    “In order to think like the delinquent, you must eat like the delinquent”

  • jch

    This way to the best coffee in town cadets! This should be the start of something beautiful – just watch out for the chicken wing bones and trash.

  • $5.55 large pizza split 4 ways would be…… oh phew, here comes a 5th!

  • JRDC

    As Cadet Smith texted rather than patrolling, Officer Jones knew the student had become the master.

  • Truxton Thomas

    We’ve got the bacon. Now we just need the chicken and the ranch.

    MAN ON RIGHT LOOKING AT PHONE: Yeah, the Wizards won and didn’t score 100 points.
    LADY: Guess there’s no promo code for Papa John’s today fellas…time for Plan B.

  • SS

    To be in top physical shape you need the fuel of a $5 pizza

  • Dave

    A Slurpee?! Classic rookie mistake.

  • marigold

    This is where we come to get our “Cop Bod”.
