    Exciting news! New LEO!

    Hey everyone. Its been a long time since I have posted here but I have been reading many great threads. When I first got my CCW I was excited to be an active member of this board and of the ccw community. I starting taking online classes for my Criminal Justice degree. I knew I wanted to be an Officer the moment I saw the impact the D.A.R.E. Officer had on our school. Well I am happy to announce that Effective tomorrow 5-21 I will be a Sworn in Sheriff's Deputy for Lincoln County, Oregon.


    I will be working in the county corrections division for the time being. I am going to do the full academy so that when a patrol position opens I can apply for it. In our county the Sheriff rotates corrections officers for patrol officers regularly so that all of his officers are experienced in all aspects of their jobs.


    I will be going off to the academy in July but will be able to start my new position June 2nd! I am so excited and have been wanting this for so long! I owe it all to my friends and family for their support. I just wish my father was still alive to finally see it!


    R.I.P Dad. I love you
    I carry because I care.

    Congrats!

    I don't know why anyone signs up to be underpaid, overworked and under appreciated but I am thankful that those of you who do are out there.
