Why Law EnforcementI was attending college for forensic science and had a couple professors who were in law enforcement. After speaking with them about the job and all it entailed, I knew that it was the perfect career for me.
First ArrestMy first arrest, while in FTO, was a domestic violence incident. The female called for help after being assaulted by her boyfriend. When we arrived the male had already fled from the scene. The report was completed and a “pick up” was issued for the male. A few hours later, we received a call that the male was back at the apartment. When we arrived on scene, the male attempted to flee but was apprehended. After we placed him in handcuffs, we located cocaine in his pocket. The male stated that the pants he was wearing weren’t his, and that someone planted the cocaine there. As a first arrest, I was able to experience a variety of what we deal with on a daily basis and understand that every call isn’t routine.
Best part of the jobJustice.
