Why Law EnforcementMy grandfather and great uncle were both career Chicago PD officers.  I grew up hearing great stories, admiring both of them and their professions, and eventually I got interested in making the job my career.
First ArrestI was tripped to the American Inn and Suites on a possible domestic situation.  We were granted access into the designated room.  Upon patting down one suspect, I smelled an odor of marijuana coming from his person.  I discovered a small baggie of marijuana in his pocket.  He was placed under arrest.  
Best part of the jobThe job usually brings something different each night.  I enjoy the variety of trips.  The nights where I genuinely can help another person is something I can hang my hat on at the end of the day.
HobbiesPlay baseball, workout, paintball, spend time with my family and friends, take in a movie, vacation, take my two dogs to the park
