Why Law Enforcement I became a police explorer in Pinellas Park Florida when I was 14 and had the opportunity to learn about law enforcement, ride along with police officers, and help out my community.  I loved it and decided to do it when I joined the Air Force. After I got out, I joined the local Sheriff’s Department where I was stationed and have been there ever since
First Arrest I don’t remember.
Best part of the job The men and women I get to work with.  Working together as a team to come up with a solution to a crisis or problem that people  face every day.
Hobbies I like playing the guitar, spending time at the gym, swimming, and online gaming.
Favorite Quote “When the force of many must act as one there are no individuals”- unknown

Why Law Enforcement While in college, I completed an internship with the Lafayette Police Department and thought it was interesting. Something I kind of fell into, but it’s been an awesome experience and I can’t see myself doing anything else.
First Arrest It was on my second call ever in training and the charge was Domestic Abuse Battery. I was nervous as hell, but I got through it.
Best part of the job Helping others is part of it, but I would be lying if I didn’t say the action.
Hobbies Bowhunting deer, duck hunting, fishing, camping, taxidermy, and spending time with my family.
Favorite Quote “Nothing good happens after midnight.” Or “It is what it is.”

Why Law Enforcement After getting out of the U.S. Marine Corps. I decided that it would be a good transition into the civilian world and what I learned as a Marine I may have to use someday in this occupation. I also truly want to protect people that are unable to protect themselves. Growing up I always stuck up for the guy that was getting picked on and kinda got a kick out of bullying the bullies.
First Arrest I would love to tell you some crazy high speed low drag incident but I honestly do not remember.
Best part of the job I like to protect others and knowing that everyday will be something totally different makes for a good day on the streets.
Hobbies I enjoy working out, running, firearms training, and video games.
Favorite Quote “I guna learn today!”

Bryce Dion – Sound Supervisor Sun, 07 Sep 2014 15:04:54 +0000 b memorial

Bryce D. Dion – 38 Died unexpectedly on August 26th in Omaha, Nebraska, doing what he loved. He is survived by his mother Gloria Dion of Haverhill, MA, his father Thomas Dion of Caswell, ME, his Brother Trevor Dion of Hudson, NH, and the late Shane Dion of Lawrence, MA, as well as various extended family in Florida, California, and Maine.Bryce grew up in Lawrence, Mass and moved to Santa Monica, California to pursue his career.

Bryce received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont and then went on to receive his Masters in film studies at the University of Miami. A lover of the arts, Bryce played the Clarinet early in his life and moved on to the guitar later on. Bryce wrote for several newspapers and magazines as well as writing many stories, screenplays, and was even published before finding his true calling working in the film/television industry for various movies and TV shows. He joined Langley Productions (Creators of COPS & JAIL) in 2007 as a cameraman before switching to mixing audio and realizing that he didn’t want to do anything else. He was beloved by his bosses, peers, and the officers he met throughout the United States alike. He was recently promoted to Audio Supervisor and considered to be the best at his craft by many within that circle. Show creators John and Morgan Langley and the entire COPS crew mourn his passing as extended family.

Having traveled around the world for several years, Bryce made an impression on everyone he met. He was quick to smile no matter the situation and made friends everywhere he went. He lived life on his own terms and was always the first one to help anyone in need; and he will best be remembered for a smile that never faded. Bryce lived more in 38 years than most people do in a lifetime and the saddest thing for those of us who knew him is not being able to see what he would’ve done next.

Anyone interested in looking at Bryce’s work and wanting to leave a comment can do so at this link.
