MY CAREER



I want to be a narcotic officer because I want to be able to get bad people off the streets and catch all the criminals with drugs. Also it may be dangerous but I'm willing to risk my life for others. I'm in good shape and I'm a fast person when it comes to chasing someone down, I'm the kind of person that will not stop until I get what I want. Lastly, I love to feel the rush when we have to go after the bad guys.
