Great career with advancement benefits

Patrol duties investigative responsibilities. Learned to read people and apply this knowledge to my career as a police officer. Co-workers depended on each other and bonded as brothers and sisters. Start of career was difficult with a new family, wife and children because of changing hours and being gone a lot. The best part of the job was being able to help people in time of need.
