My experience with LE is a little different than most. I grew up in a very remote part of Washington State. A little town nestled in the Cascade Mountains called Newhalem.
My dad was a Whatcom County outpost deputy and was responsible for patrolling and protecting a 72 miles radius, with his only back up being one State Trooper who lived 14 miles away from us, and we considered family.
If you look on a map, you will see that Bellingham Washington, which is where Whatcom County Sheriff's Office is located, as well as the courthouse, jail, hospital and everything else my dad needed in order to do his job, is just shy of a 2-hour drive from where we lived. Which meant if he arrested someone or anything happened, he typically wouldn't be back home for at least a day.
My dad didn’t have shifts. He worked 24/7. We had a sheriff's sign in our driveway and people would knock on our door, alarms would sound in our home, the radio was always on, and he responded to calls at a moment's notice, at all hours of the day and night.
Though you can't really get away with this anymore, I learned to run radar starting when I was 4, I learned how to shoot a gun when I was 6, I had my own radio channel, and I would ride shotgun and decide who we pulled over. It was the 80’s. Simpler times! Lol
My point in sharing this with you, is so you can understand that I have been living and breathing a deep understanding of LE since I came into this world, and I am humbled and honored to use my life's experience and expertise to give back to all of you that put your lives on the line for complete strangers. It would be my honor to be a coach for you.
