Police Officers reveal that they are not spared from encountering the unexplained especially if they are on-duty after dark. Here are accounts of paranormal encounters of men and women in uniform.
My girlfriend’s grandfather used to be a detective, and he tells a pretty terrifying story.
When he was still pretty young he got a call to an apartment building because a “monster” was trying to get into someone’s apartment. The caller said that they had heard a gunshot, and then a while later something was pounding on their door.
When they opened it a monster was standing there and tried to get into their apartment. They kicked it out, and slammed the door. The caller also said that they had heard more screams from down the hall, so the monster may have been trying to get to other people.
When my girlfriend’s grandfather got to the building he found a man shambling around inside covered in blood. He got the guy turned around and realized that he had found his “monster.” The guy had attempted to commit suicide by putting a gun under his chin and firing upwards. However, he had screwed the angle up and blown off his jaw and part of his nose, but he was still alive and in extreme shock.
He had been walking around the building knocking on doors, trying to get someone to help him, but his grisly visage had terrified everyone, so they kept slamming the door in his face. – Ultimatespacewizard
Myself and a buddy on my squad responded to an alarm. The incident location was an old office type building that had been converted to doctor’s offices. There was a pharmacy attached to it. Our dispatch received a motion signal from an upstairs office. Key holder arrives on scene and we go in to secure the building. The stairs were locked behind a door that, of course, the key holder didn’t have keys too, so we took the elevator up to the second floor (not the most tactically sourd option, I know).
Elevator opens to a pitch black hallway… except for one overhead light at the end of the hall. We start checking doors, and so far all are secured. We get to the last office, and sure enough, the door is unlocked. We make entry and observe it to be an unused office. The door opened to a sizable waiting room and reception area. There were about 10 or 12 exam rooms, all cleared with no hiccups.
We exit the office and immediately, something seems off. That is when I realize the overhead light at our end of the hallway that had been on was now off, replaced by another light over by the elevators. I look at my squad mate and he is completely white. I ask him what is wrong and he says, “Weren’t all those doors we just checked closed and locked.” I tell him yay, so. Buddy says, “Well now they’re all standing open.” Sure enough, all the offices down the hallway we had just checked were now standing open. Pucker factor sinks in at this point.
So we start clearing offices and securing offices. We finish the last office, and on our way out, just before we turn the corner to get into the waiting area, the main door just slams shut. Then, our radios start going nuts with some kind of static feedback. Now I just want to get the hell out of there.
We get back in the elevator and head down to the first floor to make contact with the key holder again. However, key holder is no where to be found. I contact dispatch and request a call back number for the key holder so I can advise him of what we found. Dispatch states that the key holder was still enroute to us and was advising an eta of 5 minutes. I advise dispatch that we had already been out with the key holder. Dispatch requests I give them a call.
I call dispatch and she tells me that there is no way we were out with a key holder. She states that the alarm company had only just made contact with one. Eventually, the “real” keyholder arrives on scene and I ask her about the man that had let us in the building (the first key holder). She asked me to describe him, so I did. She states that that sounds like one of the doctors that used to lease the office on the second floor AT THE END OF THE HALL. She then states that he had committed suicide at his summer home several days ago.
I still won’t go back there. — SC_Lawman
Before I was a reserve at my department, a former full time officer and another reserve took a call of an upstairs window, of an older house in the city, being broken from the outside, I think a rock thrown through it.
The reserve was downstairs talking to the old lady that owned the house taking the report. The full time officer decided to go into the room where the window was broken and take a photo of the window for documentation. Of course they still had the older Polaroid cameras, he stood facing the window and took the picture… He put the photo in his pocket not thinking anything about it.
Flash forward to when he takes the picture out to look at it.. And next to his head holding the camera there is a face looking over his shoulder that showed up in the window. When I was told this story I was a little spooked and thought they were setting me up for a rookie’s welcome but nope. – perks
My father was a Boston cop, he told about a memorable call back in the early 90’s.
He got a domestic call (cops hate those) where when he showed up, the man who called was waiting outside covered in blankets shivering to death… on a hot day in the middle of August. Apparently he angered his woman and she responded by making a voodoo doll and chained & padlocked it in the freezer.
The man wanted the cops to break the fridge open but they weren’t going to destroy property over this so they sent him to the hospital. My father said this guy’s teeth were chattering & his lips were turning blue when it was sunny & 80 ° out. – Milkshakemaker
Anyways I am a security guard and occasionally work nights at a state office building.
A few months ago while working 3rd, I was at a desk going though paperwork when one of the elevators down the hall dings and opens. I get up to check it out and see that no one is around. As I am going back to my post it dings again, this time the hairs on my arms stand up and to my amazement hear footsteps running down the hall away from me.
I am officially freaked out by this time but I go back to station and continue with the paperwork to ease my mind. About an hour later I have to do my rounds which include taking the service elevator to the 8th floor and checking on the boilers. I get the info I need off the boilers and start down the hall back to the elevators.
As I near the elevator I hear a door opening and slamming three times around the corner. I stop in my tracks, identify myself, and ask whoever is up here to show themselves and identify. A couple seconds pass I heard the door slam again and footsteps running down the hall, I peek around the corner and no one is in sight.
At this point I S@#T a brick, run as fast as I can to the elevator and get back to my post. I stayed in that chair until my relief showed up in the morning lol. I told him what happened and all he could say is “Yeah, that happens around here sometimes” I have worked there numerous times on 3rd but have not had another encounter yet. – GixxingTurtle
A GUARDIAN ANGEL?
“A traffic guy at my agency was catching up to a DUI suspect, no lights/sirens. The suspect was easily 300-400 yards ahead, at 0330 hours, on a very long stretch of semi-rural road. The left side of the street was lit by street lights, and the right side was dark. Both cars were moving fast, about 80 mph or so.
His dash cam video showed the suspect vehicle lose something from its rear and it turned out it was the suspect’s rear bumper. After the bumper stopped tumbling, the video showed a black figure dart into the roadway from the left, (the side lit by streetlights), pick up or move the bumper, and then dart to the right side of roadway where it was dark. The video showed nothing on the right side of roadway when the officer drove by the area. The officer did not see this occur at the time, but instead when he reviewed his video in the car to find out where the suspect lost his bumper.
The dark figure had no reflective clothing on, as most joggers/dog walkers do in the area, and was definitely in the ‘right place at the right time,’ as the officer most likely would have hit the bumper due to his speed and possibly crash.” – Shared
