I can never seem to give them a good reason. I always tell them, "I think it'd be cool and that I'd like it." Eh, doesn't sound so hot. I've contemplated this ever since and am still not sure how to answer that. Perhaps it's because I believe in the law and like to see it upheld. Or maybe it's because I like to see criminals pay for their crimes. Or... I like to see people be safe and out of danger and not become victims. Or maybe the thought of just helping ordinary people puts a smile on my face.
So I'll ask all of you: Why do you want to be a police officer?
