    New in Texas

    I just joined the other day and finally got around to posting so here goes nothing. My name is Blake and I am a jailer at the local jail here in my town. Love the job but do not care for the extra risk of bad people recognizing me on a daily basis. Since I started 2 months ago I see people that were inmates there on almost a daily basis. ( I think I recognize them more than they do me ....but it never hurts to be prepared!) I since have signed up to do my concealed carry class since the packet has been sitting around for months now and really hope to learn alot from the people on this forum. I will be starting police academy in January and hope to be patrolling within 4 years. Thanks alot and I hope to read and post frequently.
