|Why Law Enforcement||Was interested my entire life. I worked Casino security, which further motived me to want to become an officer.|
|First Arrest||My FTO and I conducted a traffic stop and discovered that both occupants were known gang members with previous weapons charges. I pulled the passenger out and asked a question I had been trained to ask, “Do you have any weapons on you?” As is the usual answer, he replied “No”. I proceded to pat him down anyway and while checking his waist I felt a firearm! I signaled to my FTO who was able to cover me while retrieved the gun. Later I found that he was being charged federally for posessing the firearm.|
