Being a law enforcement officer puts people in some seriously nerve-wracking situations. From life threatening busts to disturbing discoveries, it’s no wonder it requires such strong nerves to go into this line of work.
But what about when law enforcement officers encounter unsettling events that even they can’t explain? These officers opened up about paranormal or otherwise unexplainable experiences they had on the job.
“Early in my career, the elevators in the older section of CIA Headquarters (known as the Original Headquarters Building or OHB) were known to have quirks (I think they still do). Occasionally, the elevator would stop and the doors would open at a floor with no one there, and no one on the elevator had requested that floor.
I heard second-hand that the ‘thing to do’ when that happened was to say ‘Good day, Mr. Director,’ because it was assumed that the doors opened for the ghost of Allen Dulles. OHB was his project, as many know, but he never was able to move into his office, having been replaced as CIA Director just before it was ready.” (Derpythecow47)
“Military policeman in the marine corps. While stationed at Camp Lejeune a dispatcher got a call from a terrified wife that kids were trying to get into her house (it was a little after midnight) we thought this was just a drunken spouse call and responded not on high alert just kinda wanted to make sure the lady was alright we knock on the door and announce ourselves. The woman is obviously shaken still with puffy eyes. She tells us ‘4 children with red eyes rang her doorbell and asked to come inside and when she refused they got angry.’
The kids terrorized her for the 5 minutes (Her own child was put to bed and her husband was deployed) I decide to do a once over of the whole housing property and it was a whole lotta nothin going on. My partner and I decide to do a little walking patrol of that housing area. In each housing area there’s usually a decent size playground as we were walking up to it we both see some kids swinging (curfew is 8 pm for young children unless accompanied by an adult on base) I’m f*cking spooked at this point and I know my partner is too. They look over at us and just stare. We started backtracking and then turned and didn’t look back didn’t talk about it the rest of the night either. Later on I looked up the incident online since Lejeune is famous for lots of paranormal activity and turns out the little red eyed kids have been reported before.” (Jrodri0502)
“Responded to a call where a woman was being stabbed.. not to death she lived but it would have been to death if we didn’t get their. Me and my partner/good friend got dispatched with really nothing more than person on other line not saying much possible domestic. We knock on the door there’s no answer. We start snooping around the windows to see if we can hear anything I start to get a really bad feeling but idk why. My buddies like man this might be a prank call. We can’t go into the house because we have no idea if there’s someone hurt, if this is indeed the correct house, or if a crime has even been committed but something is telling me not to leave. After pounding on the door for 15 min a woman comes dashing out of the house with stab wounds all over her. A man comes out behind her with bloody hands holding two knives and we arrest him. It was weird because normally we would just leave after someone doesn’t answer the door. But something told me to stay.” (enraged768)
