Officers Ralph Dominguez and Doug Sheldon are dispatched to a report of a strong-arm robbery of a kid’s bike. When they arrive on scene the juveniles say the suspect took one of their bikes down to a wooded area by the river. Officers Dominguez and Sheldon walk into the brush and discover a hidden homeless encampment. The subject is located along with the victim’s property. The suspect says he just wanted to teach them a lesson after they taunted, threw rocks, and shot at him with a bb gun. The teacher becomes the student, and the suspect learns a thing or two about not taking the law into his own hands. The property is reunited with its owner and the suspect is taken to jail for his transgressions.

|Why Law Enforcement||I was going to college in Sacramento and trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I was taking some nursing classes at my parents wishes and I took a criminal justice class for general education. I was hooked after that first class. I went on my first ride along about a year later and I knew for sure that law enforcement was for me.|
|First Arrest||I can’t remember my first arrest. There were many arrests early on in the busy city of Stockton. Much of it is a blur to me.|
|Best part of the job||The best part of the job the positive impact we are able to make on young kids. Something as simple as talking to a child and handing them a sticker while in uniform can make their day.|
