Behind the Badge


I’m hoping this blog will help show people that police officers are people. We have our stories just like everyone else, the same things make us laugh, and the same things make us sad. I will update as often as I can!

So last week, I arrived at work and sat down for the routine briefing which I thoroughly enjoy. The briefing allows everyone to literally throw everything out on the table, who’s getting married, who’s getting divorced, who’s pregnant etc. It also gets a little crazy at times (because we ALL do!).

We all depart the Police Department and I began my check sheet for vehicle inspection. The vehicle inspection has a very detailed list of what works and what doesn’t work. So being the man I am, I cautiously check each box, without actually doing so, say quick prayer to the God Almighty and pray it all works and headed out into the city.
