|Why Law Enforcement||It was something I always wanted to do since I was a kid. I held odd jobs out of high school but as soon as I turn 21 I filled out an application for the department and I have been doing it ever since.|
|First Arrest||Can’t remember my first arrest but the first one that stands out was when I was still a rookie. Stopped a suspicious male which he was calm and cooperative. As soon as I went to run him for warrants he tried to flee and I grabbed him. A struggle ensued. I was unable to call for assistance because I was on the records channel. We fought for several minutes before finally getting him into custody. That’s when I knew this job was “real”.|
