    I'm doing a project in a School-to-Career class as school and I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips as to what the life of a police officer entails. I'm interested in becoming a police officer after high school and I don't know that much about police work. Any information would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    It's definately not what you see on "Cops". After all of the running/chasing/fighting/arresting the turds. You spend the next 6 hours trying to explain it all on paper so some ADA can plead the turd down to a slap on the wrist from a 1st degree felony. It's frustrating but I wouldn't change it for the world. I love being a cop, I just wish it paid more.

      It's an "experience". You do & see things most people only imagine. Unlike T.V. it's really hours of boredom & repetitive calls to mostly ungrateful people who wonder where you were so they weren't victimized or they're wondering why you're "harassing them. ONCE in a while though you get to see how perhaps you've really helped someone & how grateful they are. Then all the other B.S. is forgotten about & it makes it worthwhile. The job is like no other........ it's the only one I know of that if you do what you're supposed to, you get in trouble & if you DON'T do what you're supposed to you get in trouble

        Contact your local FOP (Faternal Order of Police).
        They should be able to steer you in the right direction.
        Hope this helps.

        And no you can't have any.
