I am an American Police Officer. I’ve been doing this job in one form or another for just over 12 years. When I started I much like a lot of my fellow officers dreamed of the car chases, and foot pursuits and catching bad guys and going out and saving the day. Every day I worked I was excited as I put my blue suit on and strapped on the body armor and the gun belt. As I have worked and grown and matured I have come to realize that the car chases are rare, the foot pursuits are dangerous, and well, we just don’t get to save the day all that often.
