Introduction: United States Law Enforcement officers are constantly under pressure. Their job requires them to serve and protect mankind, under any circumstances, at all times. Because of this, officers run the risk of putting themselves in harmful situation. This may include apprehending a violent assailant, or entering harmful locations.

Ask anyone what the purpose of being a police officer is and they will answer that it is to keep people safe and maintain the peace. What many people do not realize is that being a police officer can damage a person emotionally. Many people see officers helping others and doing good but they do not see what happens when they are off duty. Just like any job being a police officer has its faults. A fault that being a police officer has is the emotional toll it can have on the officer and his family. Several people focus on the officer and how he has been affected by the job but they do not consider the family, the family that is there to help and support
At first I thought I wanted to be a Doctor like my brother Joey, to save people who were dying and cure illnesses. But after taking Biology I realized that human anatomy and blood weren’t my strong suit. My sister Katy is going to become a dermatologist and has wanted to ever since our mom was diagnosed with melanoma in 2008. Her career choice was very personal since a few years later she had a cancerous mole on her leg, but I just didn’t feel the same connection to dermatology the she did. I then thought about going into law enforcement like my brother Cory, although I knew that I didn’t want to be a sheriff like my brother, law enforcement was the only career option that has ignited a spark within me, a spark that I didn’t fully consider until I combined it with my love of psychology, my career choice then flourished from a spark to an
My desire for a career in law enforcement started while pursuing my undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida. As a freshman biology major with hopes of becoming a Radiologist, it did not take me long to realize the medical field was not for me. Peers in my classes had a passion and interest for the material that I did not possess. My grades poorly reflected the type of student I was. Realizing it was time for a change, at the end of my sophomore year I started seeking guidance. Unbeknownst to me, my disinterest in the curriculum was a major contribution to my poor performance. I completed career assessments and sat with academic counselors in several different areas of study. I was feeling more confused than ever because Criminal Justice courses often sparked my interest, but I hesitated due to the dangerous nature of police work.

In my case I decided to interview a longtime friend and active police officer in my hometown community. Officer Delancy from the Stuart Police Department located in Martin County, Florida. Officer Delancy has been a patrol officer for the last over twelve years and counting. As I talked with officer Delancy one question I asked him was why did he want to become an officer of the law.

The current Mission Statement of the Jackson Police Department is to improve the quality of life for its citizens and to reduce the problems associated with crime. They want to educate the officers and public and develop a co-active partnership with the community. They endeavor to be honest, fair, impartial, courteous, and respectful.

After reading the mission for Madison, Wisconsin I can say that I was proud of their police department and could see myself living in a city where the police strive to give its citizen high-quality police services. They also stated that giving all of its citizens respect and dignity and for me, that sounds like key elements that all police
Today I researched 3 careers that I would like to further more explore once I graduate high school, these three careers were border patrol, military officer and nurse. All these jobs interest me because I would like to do any of the three, they are all very well paying jobs and they seem like very interactive and fun something’s I would like to do because desk jobs aren’t for me.

Growing up is exciting and very scary. Being young is fun while it last but eventually everyone has to grow and go in to the working field. Law enforcement has been a big topic whether it be bad or good things said the law enforcement is always brought up. When I was young I took a fast interest in business. The moment I decided I wanted to be a cop was when I met my dad’s best friend that was a cop, and businessman. All any person wants in a career is to make a decent living and do something that they enjoy doing. I’ve always enjoyed helping people that needed help, the Kansas career pipeline let me take some surveys and showed me that I enjoy helping people more than I enjoy building myself something, which I believe that is true.
To become a private investigator The job itself shows a lot of determination and willpower to continue a legacy of an investigator. But no matter the case, I’m sure that I will fulfill any part that I need to at any given moment. The career is something that I know I will never get bored of. Well of course keep me interested every day. However, would also make my life more interesting known everyday i could be dealing with something different as in cases.. As always, every job will be difficult times, but I hope that I never feel the need to give up and that my motivation of helping others continues through lost criminal cases and more. Also, I hope that I do not settle for less and continue going up the law enforcement field and achieve goals each and every year for the career. This would always keep me on my toes and I know that it can help me try to keep going up. If I ever decided to switch careers i hope that i let it still be in the criminal/ law field. With this being said the ladder to receive this job will require me to successfully finish school with a prospering degree, always staying vigilant and keep moving forward, and enjoyed every little thing I can from the career. It would be a great experience to learn from and grow from also. But I hope I keep going up the ladder of success and settle to a hierarchy. Ending my essay I have to ask, Am I ready to take the next leap of faith that is called adulthood? We will see as time goes by and I grow as an adult that is striving for a better life and receives a well off career in a nice state/
