#110601 - 03/30/05 01:47 PM LEO's (past and present) identify yoursleves....

i am a city police officer. small town (60 sworn) in florida. i have 10 years experience with the usual certs for an officer w/my time on the force. u/c narcs, THI, patrol, plain clothes investigations, school resource, honor guard, swat cert and shield man on our entry team.

i spent time in the military as a firefighter/medic in the gulf war. currently waiting to go back in the air guard...

any other police/mp/sheriff/etc out there?

I was also LEO in Florida. I started out as a State Correctional Officer and then went to The Sheriff's Dept. Now I live in New Mexico and work for the Apache Gamming Commission as a Surveillance Agent.

hey eddie, that must be pretty interesting.
do u get to walk around and try and catch people cheating at the cards or slots?

as an agent of the apache gaming comm. do u have arrest powers and such?

i train in shoot fighting to help me when i have to subdue suspects.

i bet working in that environment u have to wrestle up lots of drunks and such...

My job is to catch guest cheating, dealers cheating, workers breaking Gamming laws & rules, and any other criminal activity set forth by the Tribe, State & Feds such as theft, assault & battery, destruction of property, prostitution and etc..

I don't physically have to apprehend anyone, I call Security and they detain them and then a Gaming Agent reviews the tapes and decides what to do with them.

If it's criminal then Security puts them in the Holding Cell and the "BIA" Reservation Police is called to make the arrest and book them.

My unit is the most feared and hated because we donít work for the Resort & Casino but the actual Tribal Council and we have to write up all violations which can get someone in trouble, suspended and/or fired.

Take Care,

hey i'm a 25 y/o deputy jailor, who is also part-time firefighter/emt and paramedic student. i've been in corrections for a little over a year and previous to that i was with the sheriff's office part time, on a small rural force of about 20 sworn officers and 3 full time deputies

#110606 - 04/01/05 06:40 AM Re: LEO's (past and present) identify yoursleves....

hey Z, good to hear from you!

are u planning on being a d/s for a career or being a firefighter para?

my hat's off to you, being a jailor, i think THAT job is the toughest job around for ANY LEO!

stick with that paramedic goal, it will open lots of doors for u.

SILAT: that sounds like a really cool job. u sound like ur team is the police of the people that do the policing.

u have any good CASINO stories?

#110607 - 04/02/05 03:22 PM Re: LEO's (past and present) identify yoursleves....

well as for which path i'm gonna go, i'm not sure yet, i enjoy both alot, and if i stay in the rural area i live i can do both to an extent.

I've been a reserve deputy in NC for 8 years and recently went for (and got) a part-time position. I've worked almost exclusively on patrol during my time. The county is mostly rural, but growing.

i spent 5 years in patrol. patrol has created some of my worst and best memories of being a police officer. it also taught me more about the job (read: PEOPLE), officer safety, tactics, and anything else. it seems abything else i have done as a leo the ability has been developed from patrol.
