I want to become a police officer because, when I was growing up on this Island back in the 80’s, and 90’s the island weren’t so corrupt as I remembered, I know there was crime but not as much and I am not ashamed to say but I grew up in a rough life with parent and stepparent trying to pull me away from those who I loved and grew up with, and caused me to me a little disturbed with how life was, with me ending up almost having me being involved in real crime because of how confused I was, and how I ended up being placed in a girls home because I was being abused by my parents with being treated like a slave and beaten up on most of the time living in a house with a alcoholic and watching my younger brothers being tortured as I were and couldn’t do nothing about it, which really caused me to be really confused and thinking I wasn’t cared about and started following in the wrong path behind friends who meant me no good. And as I have become an adult I have seen my fellow classmates and so called friends become the kind of people I never would have thought I would see them become, with getting in real trouble with the law and being drug abusers and suppliers. Seeing my own loved ones using the drugs and having to call the law upon them knowing that I didn’t have to but did because of the kind of person that I am I don’t want them to think that I am encouraging them in anything that’s wrong, knowing that I sat and spoke to them saying there is a lot more to life than just stealing things to sell or using parents hard earned pay to buy drugs to get high and feel good.
I am proud of myself to know that I was strong enough to keep away from things like that and always tried my very best to steer other people in the right path even though they were playing toned deaf to me I had friends who deal with drugs and never knew they dealt with it until they put their trust in me and told me and I told them they can’t be a friend of mine if they are that kind of person that I’m not, so one of the questions were why do I want to be a police? Is so I can help clean up the bad act on the road with all this crap that’s flowing around on our streets so that no more of our young Caymanians will be dying from being involved in it, and not see our loved ones being influenced and breaking our own hearts in having to break theirs with having to cuff them up and you just feeling the hurt inside, I know a lot of people who are suppliers and sellers for the suppliers I want to help get rid of them by prosecuting them and put them away.
