    2010 Most Notable - Career Related

    LEOs and non LEOs - what was your most memorable/notable/notorious memory, career related, of 2010?

    Mine was not very exciting but I was pretty proud of it. I was instructed to do a complete remodel of our communications center. I was given a budget and allowed almost total authority as long as I stayed inside that budget. It came out pretty good!

    I got a trip to the ER for injuries sustained fighting with a wanted subject. Got dirt scrubbed out of road rash.

    I came a couple inches from being run over by a car going 80 MPH. It was me or the spikes I threw in front of him and he tried to take me out. Killed himself in the process.

    Applied and took a job at a LE agency 4000 miles away, completed lateral training, and started FTO.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    A brother of mine actually became my Lieutenant. All is well. Life is good.

    Hoping 2011 is a little more calmer for you.

    Seriously, 2010 was the most boring year of my short career.

    My 5th year has been capped off with literally NOTHING notable or interesting happening as far as I can remember. It could be because things that I used to think would be exciting aren't anymore...or it could just be because my year was boring. I dunno. I'm ready for 2011 though.

    Thank you sir. I was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant. It was a surprise, honor and privilege. One I was not expecting nor thought I would attain.

    I accepted a different (although still related) job with my company and although I was a little unsure about my abilities, I've exceeded my own expectations as well as those of my employer.

    Well on 4/26/10 we welcomed Alexander Conrads into this world, and last month I found out I was selected for traffic accident reconstructionist training.
