|Why Law Enforcement||A friend was an officer who encouraged me to apply.|
|First Arrest||I don’t really remember my first arrest. An early arrest that comes to mind was a guy that I’d arrested about a month before walked up to me in a convenience store when I stopped in for a beginning shift drink. He wanted to shake hands and tell me thanks for being nice to him and how he was turning his life around. Too bad I had just seen he was wanted when I came on shift. Arrested him right there and he cussed me all the way to jail.|
