Well here we are, nearly two years on from when I decided to join the police service.
So far I have experienced things I would never had done in twenty or thirty years in another job, I have saved a life, held hands of lives that slipped away, been at births and been called to sudden deaths of the old and infirm who passed away peaceful.
I have seen violence abuse and terror in peoples faces, I have also seen peace, love and comradeship unparalleled. I have even traveled to Scotland ! (With out a need for a passport !)
I have been to the highest court in the land and have given evidence in a serious crime case, and all the way to youth court for the unruly!
I have arrested a burglar inside the home he was stealing from, and I have had people run away and escape from me.
In all these and many more experiences there is not one that I regret or did not in some way learn from, and the best is I know that there is more to come.
With so much going on in the world and all the disasters and trials, I for one look forward to the challenge of life.
