I’ve been on the streets a little less than a month and I’ve pulled out my gun 4 times, made 4 solo arrests, numerous assisted arrests, arrest warrant on a barricaded subject that committed an agg battery w/ a deadly weapon, DWI is what I’m best at (my fellow officers say I present myself like a senior officer when conducting SFSTs), 3 unattended deaths…
..but I still suck at traffic. I fumble my words and take forever writing out citations. I know it comes with tons of practice but I can’t seem to improve on them.
I work 12 hour shifts and I’m dead tired all the time. I work and I come home and sleep and do that shit all over the next day.
I just transitioned from nights to days and it’s constantly busy and I’m taking calls left and right.
It’s all good though just the sleep deprivation is what’s getting to me. Sometimes I’m so tired I start shaking. I hope I get use to this.
I’ve been called a lesbian (which is fine) and a bitch several times. I’m not affected at all. I find it funny actually and when I start laughing they get so pissed and I laugh some more.
Sorry for the lack of updates but I’m sure most of you can understand that I’m dead tired and in my free time I like to spend time with my son.
