I spent 28 years in law enforcement and I’d do it over assuming I could do it in the same time frame. If I had to start right now there is no way I’d go into law enforcement. It’s a thankless job and getting worse. Too many people out there want to put you in prison for making a mistake when you only had a split second to make a decision. They get to sit back and watch the video over and over and use slow motion and freeze frame, but don’t realize you didn’t have that luxury. And that’s not the only issue in law enforcement. It’s just not a good career to get into any more.
