I easily knew things would be seriously difficult, when I started working at the police station. I was the very first female officer in our Town’s existence. I consistently knew that I wanted to be a police officer. Even when I was a little girl, I didn’t dream of princesses as well as fairies. I dreamed of catching the bad guy as well as participating in a bunch of car chases. When I was 10, I told my mom as well as dad that I was going to grow up as well as be a police officer. I went into the military, as well as served our country for nearly 6 years. While in the military, I served my post as a member of the military police. I actually believed this would impress my fellow officers, but they only saw a lady in a uniform. During my initial week, I got stuck with an old, dilapidated police cruiser… Two of the tires were pretty much bald, as well as the a/c equipment didn’t work. I didn’t want to complain, because I knew they would blame me simply for being a woman. I took the cruiser to my property that night, as well as asked my guy if he could look at the a/c equipment. Even though the tires were bald, the a/c equipment was definitely my first priority. It was 95 degrees outside, as well as I am forced to wear a bulletproof vest as well as heavy uniform. Luckily, my guy genuinely fixed the problem with the a/c blower, and at least I could have relaxing a/c during the afternoon. My first few weeks at the precinct were legitimately rough. I took a lot of flack from those guys, but they eventually got around to trusting me.
