Love the video. You had a bookkeeper and a waiter...you are right, I can do this. I applied today. Your blog is awesome by the way. I go to school at Texas State and a friend told me about it. He told me that your son and daughter-in-law go here also. Great job Officer McCoy. This is what I always wanted to do since I was a kid.

(P.S. I am a professional Frat Boy also, like in the video, funny stuff LOL)

Thank you for the recognition. Class 198 was a very tight group. I really appreciate the clips and pics you posted. Keep up the good work. For anyone wondering if they can do this, you can. I am the last person that you would imagine that would join HPD. I was scared at first of the unknown, but after six months in the academy, I can not imagine doing anything else.

Thank you for the compliments. You really can do this. I was 19 when I joined (now you must be 21) but I was scared also. I came away from the academy knowing I could do this job and do it well. The training gave me the confidence and skill to do this. Still going strong after all these years. I really do mean this when I say it. You will love this job.

To the other comment, if you see my son and daughter-in-law tell them I said hello and come home for a visit soon, I miss them!

As one of the cadets, now officer, in that video and after the first phase of the field training program I can say I have never had a job I loved like this one. How many jobs do you wake up looking forward to everyday? I can't imagine a better career.
