Personal Statement

Haven’t you ever wondered how the criminal mind works? I do, I have always wanted to be a cop since I was three. I always looked up to them and respected them. They make me want to be respected in my community like they are. Just like most cops I’m a fast learner, a quick thinker, and I am very enthusiastic. I enjoy being around kids and teaching them new things. The spark of respect I get from my nephew inspires me to be the kind of man kids will look up to. He looks up to me and respects me, and I enjoy teaching him how to listen and learn new things.

I also enjoy riding bikes with my friends and playing Xbox. Playing action games help me see into the minds of others, and anticipate what they will do. I think it gives me some of the skills I need as a police officer.

I’m talented with computer programs like Microsoft word, and PowerPoint. I have used computers since I was in the sixth grade, and I can organize information well.

I have a very supportive family. I was born and raised in the same house for fourteen years by my two lovely parents who keep me going every day.
