    Are there any departments that use time clocks to keep track of employees hours worked? If so, what type do they use.

    Haven't heard of a PD doing that.

    Our supervisors log us in at shift change. It's a computer roster, you're either there or not. The only things we time stamp are OT slips, and that is one of those small electronic clocks that you slide a slip of paper in and it stamps date and time.

    The worst part of a time clock is when you show up early and they don't let you punch in, yet if you punch in late they shaft you. I lost track of the number of times over the years I have showed up to jobs and got dragged away to do something only to end up punching in late and getting bitched at for it.

    They also do not account for call in's from home, direct response to scenes, going EOT from outside assignments. They also take away from discretionary OT. Many times I have worked past my tour and not put in for it. As a boss I should be allowed to give guys a grace period, with a clock I have no discretion. All in all I don't think they work for L.E., and definatley not for Detective work.

    We just have a master schedule of who's supposed to be working each day, it shows if someone's out sick, vac day, whatever. It gets entered into the computer each day. For OT we submit a slip by the end of the week. This is one area that they treat us like grown ups.

    Better yet show up 1 minute late any day on a week that you have a swap and you lose swaps for 90 days.

    Yeah well I'm inside not worried about body cams but they are always watching.

    I've not had the swap thing happen to me since I try to be 20 min early.
