In most jurisdictions dont cops have to complete copious quantities of paperwork after firing their weapons?
- Option 0. You, as a cop, have to drive to the beat and then chase some hoodlums around for the whole duration of the shift. You may become cold, wet, and uncomfortable. There is always some danger involved, and Control is always bothering you with status and assignments.
- Option 1. You, as a cop, have to sit in a comfortable chair at the station and type on a computer, as slowly as you can manage. You may become relaxed, sleepy, or full of coffee and donuts. There is no danger, and you are immune from Control's calls.
It doesn't appear that the "copious quantities of paperwork" is a punishment. It's more like a reward - the same pay for an office job.

Don’t mistake this for defending bad acting cops but
essentially accusing people of signing up for a job where
they would rather do paperwork than be in the field
borders on asinine. I work in a similar field where negative
interaction with people requires report writing before
one goes home after shift. Nobody wants to invite extra
paperwork upon themselves. Those that might would
be called “office staff” and that is where they would stay.
