Police and Fire chiefs from around the country are reporting record number of vacation requests being put in by their employees. The reason… the US Supreme Court made gay marriage legal and now these employees can get married.
Filling all the overtime to accommodate these vacation requests is becoming overwhelming. The chiefs we talked to said they will figure out a way to cover shifts and make sure all their people get a chance to get married.
Chief Kevin Keeley summed up his feeling best. “Most cops only get married twice, some might get a third. It is important to get people a day off for these events. Also it is only fair my gay officers get to share the experience of a marriage and then losing half of everything in a divorce.”
To everyone now able to get engaged and married legally we at CallTheCops want to say (for real not satire) congratulations!
