English term or phrase:gallows shift
Cops working the gallows shift, after all, needed their sleep, too.
Explanation: gallows humor
Sense of humor that arises from stressful, traumatic or life-threatening situations where death seems to be an inevitability. Different from black humor in that comments of this sort are made by the person/persons affected (i.e. about to die). http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gallows humor
