    The 9 weeks of leave and decent salary that still has 11 years of increasing increments (not counting promotion) is also very nice.
    9 weeks????? Holy crap!

    I've always wanted to be a police officer since I was a kid. I've been volunteering with my local PD as an Explorer since high school. I'm turning 21 next year and have had second thoughts every now and again about joining, but I respect the profession and it's men and women who serve.

    And when you put on the uniform you represent everything that matters and everything that is lacking... honor, integrity, loyalty, truth. And as a result you must wear it without tarnish, without wrinkle, with starch and polish.

    At times your faith in purpose will be tested, doubt may cloud your mind and fill your heart. At these dark times you will find yourself again. You will save a life, you will help a child find his way home, or you will hug an old man upon the passing of his wife. You will be whole again.

    And should the time come where I find myself lying in the street dying, I know that I have thousands of brothers who will all hold my hand even if they do not know my name.

    Beautifully stated.

    When I was a Marine I was ordered to be a MP. Something I never thought about growing up. It was very basic and all you have to do is be diligent. Then I realize I have a situational awareness about three times greater than most. I solve crime and catch criminals.

    I love helping people and get paid pretty good with pretty good benefits. Also there's no other type of job like this, you never know what kind of stuff you'll get in on any given day.

    I will say that I don't like bullies, and I don't like children not feeling safe in their own homes and play grounds. When I hear sirens or see something going down, where everyone runs away, I have always ran towards it. I have this "protect" in me. I am beaten down with all thats going on in NY and everyone chanting for the deaths of my Brothers& Sisters, but some how someone picks me up every shift.

    Post two was dead as- accurate. To add, we have something in us that made us chose this. When I am away on vacation all that burned out feelings gone, and I am ready to saddle up again. However being a Cop doesn't Define Me, and its not the coolest thing about me. It's a part of me, but not me. One day if you get on remember that.

    Also, it's fun. I get to work outdoors - I would much rather work in the rain than an air-conditioned office. (Heat waves are best - give me 95 degrees and everything is great.). I get to fly an airplane, drive a fast car or a 4x4, get paid to shoot and don't have to buy ammo.

    Cops, soldiers, firemen and pilots are the people who grew up to do the job they dreamed about as kids.
    Damn Brother that's perfect
