|Why Law Enforcement||I was going to college and working as a waitress, when I started looking for a full time job with benefits. I had several friends who were in the Police Academy and applying for jobs in Law Enforcement. I became interested and applied for a Police Officer position, with the City of Stockton. I was hired a short time later and found a fulfilling career, at a Police Department I love.|
|First Arrest||The first arrest I made was on my very first day on the street. Within 2 hours of the start of my shift there was a silent burglary alarm at a business. When we arrived the suspect jumped the fence surrounding the business, near our patrol car. We chased him back into the building and he and a second suspect were taken into custody, with the assistance of a Police K9. They had computers and other electronics stacked up near the door of the business. This arrest secured my desire to be a Police Officer with Stockton PD.|
|Best part of the job||Currently the best part of my job is watching the Officers who work for me grow, and expand their knowledge. I am very proud of these Officers and love watching them as their careers progress through Stockton PD. The help and positive impacts my Department makes in the community, through arrests, crime prevention and education, is why I have chosen to stay here.|
|Hobbies||In my free time, I try to stay active. I run, bicycle and kayak. I also spend time with my family, including husband and four kids.|
|Favorite Quote||Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.|
