Dear PoliceOne Member,

We’re pleased to introduce the newest member on the PoliceOne roster of writers. Mike Peterson is a retired 23-year veteran of law enforcement—he served three years in the United States Military Police and then 20 years with the City of West University Place PD in Houston, Texas. Like many cops, he worked a part-time job for part of his career. Unlike most cops, his part-time gig was performing on stage alongside the likes of Jay Leno, Dave Attell, and Richard Lewis. Mike has also had the honor of performing for our Troops over in Iraq.

Check out his debut column below, and watch for his next one — on cops and divorce — in a couple of weeks.

Doug Wyllie, PoliceOne Senior Editor
