PostSubject: My parents are having second thoughts about me becoming a law inforcer.   Tue Oct 20, 2009 8:32 pm

My parents are worried about me becoming a law inforcer. My mom has wanted me to become an art teacher. Im am currently attending college to become a techer and my parents are reluctent to help pay for school if i switch majors. They think that a law inforcement job is too risky for me. I understand their concern but I think I can handle the risks. I have wanted to do this for about three years and I dont think that I will change my mind anytime soon. Being a teacher would have its benifits; but I would rather pursue a job that I felt strongly about than take the easy way out. How do I tell my Parents this? Maby if I knew more about the actual job from people who go to work every day I would have a better argument rather than just showing them information I find online.
Thanks for any responses.

Not to be rude, but you should work on your spelling and grammar if you want to become a teacher or a law enforcement officer. Both are important jobs. I wish you luck!

MAC is right, but most people can improve their spelling and grammar skills if they really want to. Plus, spell check is great! Being a police officer is one of the most honorable professions. But, there are more dangerous jobs!

I have been a police officer for 5 years. I have never been shot at, and have only had to draw my handgun 1 time. Anything can happen anywhere, but the risk increases if you work in an area with a higher crime rate Smile
