Police Officer

How long have you been a police officer? 6 months

How long have you worked for DSCC? 6 months

Why did you decide to become a police officer? I’ve always enjoyed helping people. I’m tired of seeing police officers portrayed in a negative light, and I’ve personally wanted to help change that narrative.

What is the most rewarding part of your job? The most rewarding thing about my job at DSCC is making peoples days a little brighter, whether that’s a surprise happy birthday or picking a random child and making them an honorary officer for the day. I also enjoy interacting with kids at the MWR Child Development Center.
