Hi Trinity!

I think the most difficult and challenging parts are trying to keep your sense of humanity, and doing what you have to do, even when you don't want to. Examples: Taking a hat away from an arrested person, who is wearing it to cover his bald head, caused by chemotherapy; arresting a guy on the way to his mom's funeral (parole violation). A lot of your co-workers will act "hardened," but most are not really that way - some are. And nowadays, the prevalence of cameras is a concern. Even if you are doing everything "right," someone can still find a way to use it against you. It's a very challenging profession, and, very rewarding. You just have to find a way to adjust to some of the unique issues you will face!
