How did you get into Law Enforcement?

I took criminology classes in college and enjoyed learning about Law Enforcement. I originally wanted to get into Federal Law Enforcement, but I decided that local Law Enforcement was a better fit.

What was your first arrest?

I made a stalking arrest on my first night on my own. I was working midnights in the Seminole area. I was called to the house twice in one night because a male subject was stalking his ex-girlfriend. I ended up finding the male hiding behind his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle. The male was cooperative, but the whole situation was overwhelming due to the amount of documentation that was required for the report.

What is your favorite part about your job?

It’s different every day. It forces you to use your brain and brawn to be successful.

Hobbies
