I have been in Law Enforcement for over 12 years. I started as a Military Police Officer for the United States Army. After a stent in the Army I served as a Juvenile Detention officer and then went on to work Corrections for Pottowattomi County and City jail. In 2004 I went back into the military and reenlisted into the United States Air Force Security Forces where I made Sergeant and went on to train troops. In 2005 while serving in the military I was hired by the Department of Veteran's Affairs and went through my second Police Academy in Little Rock Arkansas. I'm currently a Federal Veteran's Affair's Police Officer and inspiring to go into another Federal Agency after completion of school. I have been through several schools to include 2 Police Academy's, FLETC(Domestic Violence Instructor Course), MPOC(Military Police advanced Course), Military Police School, Juvenile Detention training(Gang unit), Defensive tactic training, PR-24 and Asp training, Drug intervention training, CRT(Crisis Response Team member), FTO(Field Training Officer) and Non Commissioned Officer Advanced training, Ground Combat training, Adult and Juvenile Detention training.
I have inspired to be a Police Officer from an early age and I'm very proud to be a part of an ellite group of Officers. I'm very passionate about my role as a fellow officer and am currently working on a degree in Criminal Justice/Physcology. I have worked both sides of Law Enforcement to include both Federal and State and have worked Corrections to get a better perspective of what it's like to be inside the walls. I'm very energetic and ready to take care of business. I'm always looking for a challenge and when people say "You can't do it, I say, try me!" I think every officer has something to bring to the table and I'm always learning and wanting more! :)
It is a constant challege! We are all called to Protect and Serve which is what makes it such a great job. We don't always get the recognition but when we make a difference, that's when it counts. I love to help people and I am all for Justice and the pursuit of what's right!
Just wanted to say hello and I am glad and proud to meet another LEO. Judging from your photos you must work for the Dallas VA. I work at North Lake College in Irving and am currently at the South Campus in South Irving. Stay safe and becareful out there.
