Why Law EnforcementEver since I was a kid I wanted to be in a job where I served my community. The first time I truly realized I wanted to be a Cop was in High School. I had some pretty good role models around that time and afterward that made me want to go into law enforcement.
First ArrestMy first memorable arrest, I was searching for a guy who fled a bar after assaulting someone. I located the suspect, and while moving in to detain him, he threw a haymaker at me then took off running. A foot pursuit ensued and I chased him about 100 yards before catching up to him and he started fighting again. Backup arrived, taser deployed, one in custody.
Best part of the jobI love the proactive side of Police work. Going out and searching for badguys, and getting to put them in jail.
HobbiesI love the outdoors. I enjoy hunting, shooting, camping, golfing, etc. I also have a ’72 Chevelle in the garage that needs to get built one of these days.
