Not everyone is a good fit for police work, though. For example; if you don't handle stress well, or lose your patience easily or you don't like interacting with strangers, police work is probably not a good fit.
But if you like problem solving and have the ability to view things from someone else's shoes, called empathy, you may want to consider a career in law enforcement. It is such a rewarding career that can benefit both you and your community.
