The Rookies



Click Play Above

I am just getting back from a recruiting trip in Chicago, Illinois. We enjoyed meeting everyone there. As I left for Houston it was 9 degrees at the Chicago airport. As I settled into my seat on the plane to come home, I heard the pilot as he came over the intercom to tell us the Houston forecast; "Sunny skies and 70 degrees." I smiled and took off my ski jacket.

I came across this old advertisement for a television show called "The Rookies". As I watched it I couldn't help but notice all the running they do. You do run in this line of work, but come on...

Officer McCoy, I was exploring the city's website yesterday and I see that you were one of three recipients of the Bravo Award. Congratulations! From what I read about you, you really deserved this award. Keep up the great work.

Thank you for the compliment. In reality, this is a team effort and everyone involved in the recruiting process should be awarded. I know that without the support of my supervisors and command staff, my efforts would not be possible. Everyone in recruiting is working hard and fast to process everyone as quickly as possible.
