Hello everyone,

Quick introduction: I am a former sworn officer in a Maryland city, but I left the field due to personal reasons. I moved to Virginia shortly after I left the PD, where I have the typical suburban life, typical desk job, typical family, etc.

But I guess for some people the 'copper' never leaves the blood. My wife is amazingly supportive and realizes this fraternity is really part of my life, so we have decided together that I should pursue a reserve deputy or reserve officer position in my community.

I am lucky, because it appears that both my town police department, and county SD have reserve programs where participants are sworn LEOs with arrest and enforcement powers. That's really what I want, to be out there on the streets again serving the public.

Anyway, that's me. I'll be reading a lot more than posting, but I figured I would introduce myself so you know who the FNG is.
