Hello! A career in the law enforcement profession can be both rewarding and strenuous and it is a job that requires dedication, patience, and integrity. If this is a career you are genuinely interested in, I would recommend speaking to more law enforcement professionals in person to get an idea of what the job is like. Try job shadowing or going on a ride-along. A ride-along is an arrangement for a civilian to spend a shift in the passenger seat of an emergency vehicle, observing the work day of a police officer, firefighter, or paramedic. Ride-alongs are offered by many police departments around the world. Good luck on your future endeavors!
