GUNBOAT


1. GUNBOAT
6 up, 1 down  
The Cleveland Police Department’s equivalent of LAPD's "Choir Practice." Usually at roll call on night shift officers would set a meeting place the bosses didn't know about, or if they did, didn't care about. One officer would get a couple pizzas from the pizza place in Cleveland Heights on Coventry Road. Another car would go to the Schmidt's Brewery and get some beer and when it quieted down (no radio runs) transmit "Gunboat." The code "Gunboat" over the air with no call sign or car number of who was broadcasting was the signal to gather and eat and drink and bitch. Usage: Cleveland Police Department.
