Yesterday I went to my nephew’s police academy graduation.
He finally did it! He had two dreams earlier in life, that he wanted to do. Either join the Army, or become a police officer. He just successfully completed a ten week police training academy, it’s just like basic training only a lot harder, but on the upside he was able to go home every weekend. He wasn’t stuck there every day, compared to new trainees entering into military.
I’m really proud of him, it took him years to get there, started off working a security guard on campus at a college, it took him a year to get on the sheriff’s department, he spent three years in jail as a correction officer. He put in for a patrol job after two years working for the jail he did not get accepted, he tried again was finally accepted for the patrol job. He then started training as a patrol officer in October of 2010. He then started the police academy 69 days ago, for 10 weeks and finally as of yesterday completed his training, his final training would include eight more weeks of patrol, driving the police car with a trainer.
That’s really exciting!
I already asked him, what he would like to do after completing his two years of patrol, he already answered I want to join the S.W.A.T team. Hell yea! Go Brad!
