Why Law EnforcementI started as an explorer with a local police department and that same department sent me to police academy when I was 18.
First ArrestIt was this lady for no insurance. I don’t remember much of the actual traffic stop. I do remember having to watch her kid for a few hours in the waiting room of the police department until someone was able to pick him up. He was pretty upset with me for locking his mom up so he just stared at me the whole time.
Best part of the jobThe interesting people I get to deal with on a daily basis. I would probably never run into any of these people if I was in a different line of work. At least never in the situations I’m able to see them in.
HobbiesI enjoy mountain biking, tennis, and copious amounts of Zelda and Halo.
