Very challenging work environment with quite rewards of having a direct imprint on the general safety and security of the general public and locations
Pros: direct imprint on society as a whole.
Cons: personal safety was always a concern as it relates to one's personal family life.
There were no typical days at work. Each day presented all new challenges. The learning curve is fast paced, varied and dynamic. The combination of City, State and Federal experience has given me unique inter-personal skills, the ability to manage others, a specialized knowledge of security and law, plus achievements in areas of patrol procedures, undercover and surveillance operations, criminal investigations and the management of HIDTA operations systems. The most challenging part of the job was gaining the ability to not personalize any situation. The most enjoyable part of the job was concluding with the knowledge that despite the outcome, your efforts has made society and the general public's overall environment better.
