Why I Decided to Become a Police Officer

I have wanted to go into this line of work ever since I was young. I grew up in a police family so I
was inspired by them to become a police officer.

Facts About My Day-to-Day

I’ve learned that this job calls for you to play a lot of different roles other than being a police officer: a mediator, a father figure, a counselor, a teacher, a good listener, etc. It’s not all about arresting bad guys.


I enjoy playing in any sport that’s competitive. I also enjoy serving in my Church home, Faith
Bible Church, and singing in the choir on Father’s Day.
