What made you want to be a police officer?

Officer Douglas:

I have always had a deep desire to help people. I lost a job in 2006 when the housing crisis was about to hit and wanted a job with great stability. Policing offers me both. I also really liked the fact that no two days are truly alike! Being a police officer is like having a front row seat to the greatest show in our society. I often walk away thinking to myself, “I couldn’t make that up if I tried!” We have the duty to walk in on someone’s worst day of their life and hopefully make it better, even if only by a little bit. That is where my desire to make a difference comes into play.
