The Journey



So I decided to create this blog as an introduction to myself, so you can get to know me a little better. It is also here, to learn my journey.

Ever since being a 3 year old in nursery, I always knew what my future held. The first time I was asked "what do you want to be when your older" was the first time I said "a policeman". At that age, all I knew is they wore a funny hat and walked around talking to people. My first real encounter with the police was a primary school open day, when the police came into my school, and sat me on a police bike. The colours of the buttons amazed me, I had never encountered so many options! Everything from the battenburg of the police bike to the collars of the police officers, made me decide for definite joining the police was the only thing for me.

From that moment forward, everything I did in secondary school, college and university were all guided towards the police. Having gained enough GCSE's to go to college, enough A levels to go to university and that all important policing degree, it was time to put all the hard work into practice. I volunteered from an early age with my local police, as we did not have the cadet scheme running anymore. Eventually going on to join the specials, all leading to where I am today, just a hard working servant of Her Majesty.

In a nutshell, that is the journey of a crime fighter.

Enjoyed reading this. I can see my son following a similar route. Ever since I bought him a police costume for his third birthday he's wanted to join the police. Lost track of how many passers by he tried arresting! He's fourteen now and selected the subjects at school he thinks will help him get in the police after, hopefully, university. As his mum I think just go for a nice, safe job but it's his choice and I'll support him.

Glad you liked it. I think every parent would be weary of their children joining a service like the police, but if you treat it well, the police is by far the best career one could go into. Of course that is just my opinion, but it truly is the best job in the world.
