SEE HOW WE'RE IMPACTING
“I love working in such a diverse community. I get many opportunities to interact with different cultures and different types of people. I love the chance to do real police work and make a difference rather than just going from call to call. It makes me feel like I’m serving the community and not just putting a band aid on a deep wound.”
“It’s exciting to be on the community policing side of such a tight-knit community. I love getting to know the individuals I’ll be serving on a daily basis. As far as Basic Law Enforcement Training is concerned, it’s been great to get to know all of the officers I’ll be working with; they’ve really taught me a lot. I’m excited to get to know them even better.”
