My name is Cole and I am relatively new to this site. I'm currently attending college and I am an aspiring police officer who happened to find this site by accident one day, but I'm happy I did.


One of my uncles is a police officer and it is something that I have always found immensely interesting. Law enforcement was always something I considered to be just a "hobby", and I didn't really think that I would want to pursue it, especially because I am asthmatic (which has caused me issues when training). The more I read and researched it the more it appealed to me, and now I've decided to make it my goal to get into shape and pursue police work. For awhile I was told that I was "too smart to be a police officer", but that is a very ignorant statement, in my opinon. I was told I'll be disliked, I'll work long hours, and I won't make much money. And yet none of that deters me because I'd rather be happy, and really make a difference in peoples lives than be rich and miserable.


I still have a few years until I gradute, so for now I'm simply looking to read and learn from the LEO's on this website. I've already learned quite a bit and I look forward to discussin on these forums in the future. Thanks.

Sweet that's really close to East Hartford, I'm in South Carolina (Military) but it's always good to see people from Connecticut here. I can't wait to go back and become an LEO. Stay in touch. =]
