A: I decided late in high school that I wanted to become a police officer. At the time, due mostly to immaturity, I thought it looked like a fun job. I took a few college courses at a community college, took a year off from college and decided to pursue a college education full time, majoring in Criminal Justice and Psychology. As I learned more about the criminal justice system, and the role police officers play in that and society, I realized how much I would be able to help others and contribute to my community. In college, I was fortunate enough to intern as a seasonal police officer in Ocean City during college, which solidified my desire to become a police officer and contribute to society.
