Why Law EnforcementIt 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 ArrestCan’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”.
Best part of the jobGetting guns and dope off the street and seizing dirty money.
HobbiesWorkout. 5 days a week sometimes twice a day. I like to be Ahead of the suspects.
Favorite QuoteIt’s a bible verse I have tattooed on my arm that sums up what we do.
