Welcome to Last Night’s Shift, by Russell Rowley.

I have been writing and posting my experiences for more than 15 years. During that time I’ve been providing details of my life and times as a police officer. I created this website so I can pass on my experiences and teach people what REALLY goes on in the mind of those who are involved in Law Enforcement.

Don’t be shocked by a Pedofile

During my time on the street, I’ve worked with a police officers, sheriff deputies, Highway Patrol Officers, and even officers from any what-have-you-force.
One reason I write and post stories is so that I can give a real picture into what is really happening in the Life on the Beat.
My stories include the ups and downs of police life. I talk about the high speed chases, the family fights, the patrol cars, the bickering from the hallways and police department parking lots.
As a note of interest, during the earlier years of my web presence, I owned the domain “Life on the Beat”, however, I started working as an undercover officer with the department. I was lucky enough to work some large cases. During those years I was unable to write about my experiences (though, I’m putting a book together…which because of legal reasons, might be 10 years before I am able to publish it). I let the domain name expire and the rest is history. Many of my stories detailed the shifts I worked the night before, so “Last Night’s Shift” is a domain that I feel is very fitting for my posts.
I’ve also made a lot of friends over the last 15 years. Some are internet friends, so are friends in my real life. I’ve asked  a few of them to share some stories on my site. So, take some time to read their posts as well. We all love comments…. only good ones though :)    So, take the time to let us know what you think.
As I think about the old days of my site, I can brag that I was “blogging” before blogging was even invented. In fact, the first online blog I ever saw. It interested me so much that I was sorta sad that I hadn’t beat someone to the punch.
I’m a street cop, so I guess it’s better to stick with that.
(By the way…..the stories you read are true. But, if I get in trouble, I’ll deny I said that, LOL)

    Hello, my name is Morty Goldman; I just stumbled upon your site - - I'm sorry to write in such an odd manner, I thought to call you but I didn't want to take up your time. What I have to say may be of great interest to you. Did you know that an overwhelming majority of businesses, organizations and celebrities buy likes and followers? What, you thought your competitor's likes and followers are organic and naturally gained? Ha ha. Backed by years of experience and sheer determination to satisfy my customers, your business can now also benefit from the unique power of social media. This is exactly how I deliver results to my clients - and I assure you that you'll be overwhelmingly pleased with the outcome.

    Russell, Thanks for 10 years of good reads. Have you ever had to arrest a friend or relative? Has anyone you ever arrested got back to you and told you, you did the right thing?
