    New to this forum. I am out of the Memphis Tn area.

    I worked as a reserve for 3 years before getting full time with a larger agency which I have been with for 4 years. I have a combined 7 years in L/E.

    I got a great chance at the age of 19 and 3 months out of high school to get on as a reserve with the small agency. A officer that worked for them knew me well and put his name on the line and told the chief to give me a chance. i have not made him regret that and will always be great full. I know this is unheard of, and if I hadn't had done it wouldn't think it was possible myself, but I was a police reserve at 19 years old.

    I loved the small agency but with that, they did not have positions open often and once I turned 21 I used that as a foot in the door to get into the department I am in now. I am 26 an have 7 years of experience.... I was lucky to have that chance.

    Hope to be able to learn and enjoy the company on this forum!

    Hello and welcome aboard from Louisiana.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    I know what you mean. I was young when I started. That was 15 years ago now (I'm getting old).

    I too was young when I started; before you were born, like 13 years before.
