A reader of my last entry asked if we use police slang. Sure do. Here’s a few I picked up over the years.
Acute Lead Poisoning – Gunshot wound
AQR – Ain’t Quite Right
Blood suckers – those who take blood samples, ie lab techs
CLL – chronic low life
CRAFT – can’t remember a f*cking thing. “Our witness has developed a bad case of CRAFT.”
Coffin Dodger – A cop who’s served as long as I did and lived to tell the tales.
DFO – Drunk and fell over
TOMB TOWN - The Morgue
We have a bunch about found bodies.
DRT – Dead Right There (victim dead at the scene of a crime)
FDSTW – Found dead, stayed that way.
PNF – Pulse not found.
LI – Living impaired.
