  • Why do you wanna be a Cop

    Curious on why so many want to be a Cop. Please feel free to share, and if you have questions just ask.

    Since I can remember, I've always had an interest in law enfrocement. It's all I ever wanted to do. As I grew older, I began to take a more mature look at LE. I looked past the TV shows and the BS you see about LE on the internet. I tried to reach out and gain a more honest perspective on what police work was really like.

    Three months ago I was lucky enough to get accepted into an internship program with a local PD (~45 sworn). I went on a weekly ride-alongs with officers, and spent days with dispatchers, detectives, and helped the admin staff, court security, and corrections officers. I talked with a lot of veterans, and they give me honest advice and frank insights into police work.

    Now that I've nearly completed this internship, my interest in being a police officer has grown. I've seen first hand the things police have to deal with (drunks, drug addicts, people screaming) and I've also seen first-hand the rewards of good police work (arresting a thug, or recieving a simple thank-you from someone).

    I'm only 19 years old, so I still keep an open mind about everything. Things can change, and if for some reason I no longer want a career in LE, or if I'm just not cut out for police work, then I'll find the career that's right for me. But right now, all I can see myself doing is being a police officer. I love the challenges, rewards, and variety the career offers.

          I like donuts and free coffee
          Chicks dig dudes in uniform
          I LOVE delivering instant karma
          I want to know who my neighbors are banging
          I want to know who my neighbor's kids are banging
          I love having an excuse to disobey traffic laws daily
          I like the idea of every POS in my territory looks over their shoulder multiple times a day worried about me
          I enjoy the warm-fuzzies when the POS calling me every name in his limited repertoire from the back seat goes through the sallyport doors


          ....and every once in a while I like to serve my community, help a kid, and ...... and drive cars real fast and shoot guns a LOT. Next question.

                Back in the mid 70's I was I was in the second last year of high and I want to be a police officer. But I had one thing that stop me from making it. I was not 6 ft. You had to be 6ft and have your H.S.C. It was the something for the arm services. That was the rule for the Tasmaina police. That's where i was born. http://www.police.tas.gov.au/

                In 1993 I got into Security though a church friend who had his own company and he was an ex A.F.P oficer. A.F.P means Australian Federal Police,http://www.afp.gov.au/policing/cyber...and-scams.aspx


                Over years I have done 4 security courses. my career took a great turn for my last year when I got what I want out of my career. promotion to sergeant. I know this thread was about police work.

                Let say this I take my career very very seriously and treat it like if I am doing LE work. In past two yeas I have had the honor of working with some very fine Police Officers.

                            I swear I am not making this up. An agency in my county had an applicant say this in his oral board interview.
