So, YES, if we had that schedule (6 on 2 off) I would agree it would not be conducive to what we do. But we don't, we work 7 out of 14 days with plenty of time off for rest. Now if the OT / Detail whores don't take time off to spend with their family or rest, that doesn't sound like a problem with the 12 hr shifts, that's a personal problem.

    But let me put this out there. The 8 hr shifts wouldn't effect me, I have seniority, I WILL have weekends off. The 8 hr shifts are not fair to the junior guys. They will get Tuesday / Wednesday off and work every weekend for the next 10 years. How does that benefit them? We still can't hire enough to staff all the districts now, do you honestly think people will apply or the new guys / gals will stay if they have to work every weekend? Stop thinking about yourself and look at the big picture. If you're not getting enough rest or family time, maybe you need to rethink YOUR choices!

    Stay Safe!

    10s are terrible for patrol! You feel like you are always working. Especially for night shift staff. 12s are the way to go when compared to 10 hr shifts. Much more down time to decompress. Decompression is what is needed to live a healthier life. I don't know anything about 8 hour shifts.. when we were on 10s the schedule was never the same. Nobody knew what day they were off or working without looking at the calendar. It sucked. Thankfully we went back to 12hr shifts after a short time.

    4 / 10's are good, it's a set schedule, and you get 3 days off a week. The problem is it's more labor intensive than 12's, which is why most agencies don't like it.
