P1 First Person: Who are your heroes?
By Richard Meiresonne, St. Charles (Ill.) Police Dept. (retired, 32 yrs.)
When I retired from policing in 2005, I was lucky to pick up teaching Criminal Justice studies at a couple local community colleges. I have found this to be a fulfilling journey. There is something critically important about shaping young minds who want, very badly, to be included in the policing profession. As part of this academic and professional journey, I found myself looking for law enforcement officers these young people could grow to emulate.
