    after a day and a half at my new job

    I have received 7 death threats. Been told so and so would have my badge 3 times. Trespassed 6 kids. Been solicited from behind by 2 hookers who apparently did not notice my duty belt, radio, handcuffs, firearm, or the fact that im oddly in all brown with tan stripes on my pants. Also broken up one fight and sent three drug dealers to jail. Knowing i am making a difference.. priceless. I thought i was in a bad area before with blue line, now with my new company I am in a whole new world of crime. Gotta love the job though

    I can honestly say I want your job. I have done security for years plus was a reserve deputy (out due to off duty injuries) and enjoyed it. I got sick of working unarmed and the crummy hours plus being a single parent needed day shift Mon through Fri.

    I bet you have no troubles staying awake at work. I retired from EMS as a medic after 21 years and took an "easy job" in security are so I thought. While my nights are not as exciting as yours we have our moments. I work at a level 3 bio-defense facility and between the CDC inspections, drills (planned and unplanned), animal rights activist groups and individuals and all the extra training we have to go through (about 6 weeks worth a year not counting any of the tactical, weapon retention, qualifying ect.) we stay pretty busy. Keep up the good work sounds like your making your area safer for all

    I try, I don't understand how staying awake at night is so difficult for other people my age, at least other people not in serious law enforcement or military. I have no problem with it, I see metro PD guys sleeping sometimes and I don't know how they can relax enough to sleep, i feel like everytime i walk out the door with my star on i have a bulls eye on my back, no way i could sleep in condition orange, i now understand why everyone who is a cop says they live in condition orange, now that im in their shoes, somewhat, i understand completley. It helps that I have powers while on duty, so i can actually step onto the sidewalk and arrest someone, funny how everyone i have met so far assumed i couldn't. im wearing brown and look almost identical to a deputy in my area, the only difference is the shoulder patches have my company name over the star, my pants are dark with a tan stripe and my badge has six points instead of 5, yet they still assume i can't touch em if they step back onto the sidewalk. Now when the clock chimes 0700, not a thing i can do. Sometimes I feel like a vampire, I have special powers from sundown to sunup then i go sleep the day away and come back out at night

    How do you have arrest powers if you're not a sworn LEO? Just Curious.

    We have no powers of arrest but we can detain until the police arrive.
