I'm back with my jobs topic and this time I've chosen the career of a police officer.
Police and detectives enforce laws. They catch criminals. They collect evidence. At times they testify in court. Others patrol set areas to prevent crime. Some patrol and give out traffic tickets. Some police direct traffic. Most police wear uniforms; detectives and special agents work in regular clothes. Like the get smart series. Dun, dun, dun.
Most police work on foot or ride in cars. Some, however, ride horses, bikes, or motorcycles. Ohhh awesome! Some work in boats on rivers and in harbors. Some police work with dogs. like german sheperds.
Most police and detectives work at least 40 hours a week. When they work longer, they get extra pay. Because police work is a 24-hour-a-day job, some police have to work nights and weekends. They have to be ready to go to work at all times. Police may work very long hours on a case. Some have to travel a lot, often on short notice. wow! In a way that's good but in a way that's bad.
So if you want to be a police officer you have to be hard working, paitent, commited and a bit intellegent.
I rate this job 6/10.
