Well I finally graduated the police academy this past weekend. I'm glad I finished but I'm gonna miss the friends I made while I was there. I also went through an extra 10 hour LE Handgun Combat class Wednesday and learned a lot that the academy didn't cover that will help me in heated situations. I've been sworn into our city PD as a reserve officer and told that I will be kept in mind for the new position of School Resource Officer at my daughters school for the next school year. I was also told by the Sheriff, that I will be officially hired into the County Sheriffs Department today and he will order my uniforms, except for boots and gun which I will provide, and he said he should have me on the schedule to start work by the week of September 16th. I'm really looking forward to getting started. My daughter is as excited as I am that I'm starting this noble line of work. She said you will be like a modern day Knight won't you Daddy, lol, I said, I guess you could look at it that way, and my brother told me that I was his hero, so just for those two alone, I have a lot to live up to.  :)

Thanks again to everybody for the well wishes. Yep Sarge, I will for the County, but I think the city PD provides the pistol for their officers. Hopefully I get hired onto the city PD pretty quick next year and won't just be reserve. I'd rather use my own weapon anyway, I just haven't decided between my Smith & Wesson M&P 45 or my Springfield XDM 45 yet.
