My husband is thinking of becoming a cop. I support him in this. It kind of scares me, to think of him having to deal with scary, crappy people all the time, but if it's what he wants, then I will support him.
I'm wondering... what is life like living with a cop? What are the hard things about it? What are the perks? Any tips for him or for me if he decides to do this?
My husband is a booking officer. He choose not to go out on the road because he enjoys working in the jail better (and he would have had to take a pay cut). It can be hard at times. My husband works 12 hours a day for 7 days and then has 7 days off. So, I guess you could say that one perk is that he has a vacation every other week, lol. However, by day 4 or 5, he is exhausted and can be a grouch at home. We also can not go out in public without seeing an inmate or someone that he has booked in. Sometimes, people do come up to thank him for helping them change their lives around and sometimes, he gets evil stares. Anyways, it can be hard, but if your husband enjoys it, it can be a rewarding career. If you have any questions, you can pm me.
