Whats going on everybody? My name is Prentice, and I am from a small town near Nashville, TN. I have a few family members that are LEOs, and I would like to be soon. I have been reading on here for a few days waiting on my account to be activated, and now just introducing myself.
also a general question. I am a "smaller guy" like 5' 7" and 130lbs. Does anyone else know any LEO with this stature, and I would just like your input on it!

I don't care if your 5'3" or 6'9", on the street all that matters is how big your heart is.
Oh, yeah... welcome.

Welcome to the fam. In certain cases size does matter, but in this case it doesn't. I have had the pleasure of watching lewis break down some very large men and I have to say he is the best bumper jumpers ( nick name courtesy of countybear ) that I have mixed it up with. Just stand tall, be confident and the rest will fall into place.Wise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.
The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.
Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

One of my best friends is about 5'4" and maybe a buck ten. But the only thing i can say is dont go out there with "little man syndrome". He doesnt and he can get more respect (and kick some ass when needed) then most guys that are twice his size. oh and btw

I'm a 5'1 136lb female , back many years ago i did reserves and its not as much size ( most of the time ) but the attitude like mentioned above . I found attitude and talk worked far better in most situations then presence alone . I am starting over in life and finally doing what i want , and working towards joining one of the depts south of nashville also , after accomplishing a few goals.
Trust me , you will do great . oh and Welcome to the forum , this is an awesome place .

when it's time to handle business my practice is fairly standard. Get in, get it on and get it over with. A fight with a suspect only gets worse the longer it takes. Once the handcuffs go on it's over.
Hope this helps.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

As I read his posts, the more I think of moving south.
In any case, I am also a small guy. With a great big voice and presence. You have to walk into every situation knowing, not thinking, you own the ground that you stand on. When whoever you stand against sees in your eyes the one hundred percent confidence that you will win, he will fail. You are better trained, with more knowledge, and you will not fail to go home. That is not a suggestion.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.
In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

thanks again everyone. I definately feel more confident about just doing it. I have always wanted this, so there is no way I'm going to let something that I cant change hold me back! I appreciate the input.

I'm not a LEO, but I can tell you this... size has nothing to do with it unless you let it. It's not so much the size of the dog in the fight as the size of the fight in the dog. In other words, it's all about attitude. BTW,
