How do your kids feel about you being an officer? Were you one when they were born or did you join after? How did they feel after you started?

My oldest daughter was 1 when I started the academy, so it doesn't seem strange to her. Now that she is 5, she is understanding the dangers of the job a little more. A close family friend and fellow officer was involved in a suicide by cop shooting a few months ago and it really scared my oldest daughter, Adriane. When I left the house to respond to the shooting, Adriane ran to her room and sat on the corner of her bed. My mom was with my girls and asked Adriane what she was doing. Adriane told my mom that she was praying for me and the other police officers and that my mom needed to be praying too. So precious!

Adriane asks alot of questions about my job. I answer them honestly and on a level that she would understand, I don't sugarcoat!

My oldest was 2 and my youngest was 6 months. As far as they know I was born with a badge and a gun. My girls have never voiced their concerns about me getting shot or hurt. Now they are 11 and 9 and use terms like perps, tweekers, thugs, hoodlum. My oldest want to be a CSI and my youngest is a little sassy and want to be a cheerleader.

My youngest is only 5 months old, so he doesn't have a clue. My oldest is 3 and he's 'getting it'. He's fascinated with the car and the gear, but he's oblivious to the dangers. Everyday, when I get home, he asks if I caught any bad guys :)

I don't remember who said it now, but I remember a cop online telling about overhearing his daughter telling a friend to "Tell it to the judge!"

LOL

My son, (when he was much younger) responded to a friend when he asked what daddy does for a living. He told him "He pokes dead things with a stick!".

I have been blessed with four beautiful children. They range in age between 4 to 12 years of age. I was a l.e.o. before the birth of my first child. My kids have expressed their pride of having a dad who is a cop on several occassions. When my oldest son was about 4 years old, we were going to have photos taken of him by a photographer. My son insisted on wearing a policeman uniform for his pictures (just like daddy). My wife and I found a cop costume and had him photographed wearing it. I still display those photos today.
