Why Law EnforcementWhen I was a kid, I always had an interest in law enforcement. I always looked up to police officers and thought they had an interesting job. Several of my family members in Oklahoma are police officers which influenced my decision to into police work.
First ArrestMy first arrest was an assault between two neighbors. I was so lost on what to do as my FTO stood by watching and giving a small smile as he watched me fumble through the investigation. When I wrote the report I should have just written it in crayon due to how bad it was with all the corrections that it returned to me with.
Best part of the jobI love coming to work each day and not knowing how the day will go. Nice and slow or slammed packed moving from one emergency to another. I love not having the same routine day in and day out. Meeting new people and some interesting characters are always entertaining.
HobbiesMy time outside of work is mostly spent with family and friends. I love taking vacations even if it’s only driving a few hours away. I’m also a gamer and hit the Xbox as much as I can if I’m not running errands or going to court.
