    Someone mentioned this site on one of the blogs I read, so I decided to come and sign up.

    I work for the second largest agency in the State of Georgia, and I have been a police officer for six years now. Currently I'm a Detective working in my county's Major Felony Unit, as a member of the Domestic Violence Squads. I work everything from Harassing Phone Calls to Homicides.

    I grew up in a small town in Minnesota, so the crime rate in the Atlanta area was quite a surprise to me when I first became a cop. I had never seen a prostitute or any drug outside marijuana. I got over my sheltered beginnings fast.

    I have a Masters Degree in English and I'm currently working on getting my Instructor Training certification so that I can (I hope) eventually move to our Training Division.

    I'm also married with a two-year-old daughter and another baby on the way. So I'm assigned to desk duty and bored out of my mind!!

    It was not an official "blog" just a livejournal site! I can't link to it because I think that it was a locked post, but I'll inquire from the person if it's okay to release his name!

    Welcome to O/R. Great to have you aboard! PM your information to myself or Pudge113 so we can get you verified LEO access.

    Welcome to the site and enjoy. Domestic Violence is one of my favorite cases to work. If we had a dedicated domestic violence unit I would be on board in a second. PM supermods Pudge113 or Countybear with your departmental information, if you haven't already, so we can get you verified. You will have access to the verified LEO forums.

    Just to add to the verification issue, it's done discretely. Nobody is going to call your boss and punk you out.

    I have been working as a Domestic Violence Detective since the unit began in our county, which was in December of 2005. I worked in the Background and Recruiting Unit before that, and as a road officer to begin with, of course.

    I really enjoy working Domestic Violence Crime. As a unit we've made a lot of improvements to the county response to DV calls. We also purchase and passed out digital cameras to our 100+ road Sergeants, for use on DV calls, among other things. We respond to major scenes -- Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Battery, Kidnappings, etc. and have had a significant impact on the overall conviction rate in the county.

    Yes, it gets a little boring. I work in a busy department that averages a homicide every three days (although it seems like they come three at a time right on Friday when you're about to get off). I'm used to working on hard cases, getting out in the field, interviews, etc. Now? I run criminal histories, make phone calls, research court history, etc. Whee!

    But I've been feeling pretty rotten (I'm still in the first trimester) so I have to admit I don't mind the break in my caseload right now.
