"I enjoy being a police officer because I believe in what we do. There has never been a more important time for police officers to be the best versions of themselves. We impact our communities one contact at a time. Policing is hard work and it always has been. If you know WHY you put your uniform on every day, then you know itís a calling. Being a police officer all these years and becoming engaged in the Texas Police Association has taught me that Texas law enforcement is in a class of its own."
