A typical prisoner, the result of law enforcement

Police officers work to make the world a better place. They work hard to keep our streets safe. They make every precaution necessary to mak sure that goal is done. Detectives work to solve crimes to any extent, no matter how mysterious or difficult. Any law enforcement worker goes through hard work everyday to keep us safe.

I want to become a police officer because I'm interested in helping society in this way. The job seems like hard work because it is, and I am very ready for it. I'm not interested in an office job that doesn't help people. I want to work everyday to save lives in an interesting way.
