C. Rearrange the paragraphs in the correct order. The first paragraph has been chosen to help you (10 points).
A. When I came out of the army I had put on 50 solid pounds and was old enough to attempt to become a police officer. I applied to many offices and my dream came true. I was accepted into the Long Beach Police Academy on July 10th, 1988.
B. I will close out this autobiography with the most important thing in my life, my family. I am married to my best friend, Amanda. We knew each other and were just close friends for the first five or six years but we became a couple nine years ago and have been married for eight years. Neither of us can have children, but we have a large family of dogs and cats that are our "kids." It makes us a happy, close knit pack of two people, three dogs, and two cats.
C. During the time that I was in the police academy I was living with my girlfriend. Shortly after graduating from the police academy we made the mistake of getting married. We ended up divorced two years later, which was a mutual decision and really the best thing for both of us.
D. During my career in law enforcement I worked in patrol as an officer, later as a field training officer, and finally as a patrol sergeant. Over the course of my career I also worked in detectives, in the Gang Enforcement Section, and as a detective sergeant.
E. My military experience definitely made the police academy much easier for me. I was already conditioned to withstand the extreme stress of the police academy. The only difficulty I had in the police academy was a number of injuries suffered during it, but I was able to continue in spite of them.
F. After five months I graduated from the police academy and was assigned as a police rookie in training for the Patrol Division. The excitement of being a police officer lived up to all my expectations. I literally enjoyed the police work so much that I looked forward to going to work and I could not believe that I was getting paid for it.
G. My retirement from law enforcement came sooner than I would have liked because of a number of injuries sustained in the line of duty. The primary of these injuries required having my spine fused. This injury alone was enough to end my law enforcement career.
H. I miss my time in law enforcement nearly every day. But, I try to look at it as getting to do a whole career of doing something that I loved. My father worked at the same place for 30 years and hated every day of it.
I got to spend a slightly shortened career doing something I loved.
I. Since my retirement I have run a private investigations company that I built from the ground up. I'm now going to school for a bachelor's degree in psychology and will move on to a master's degree afterwards.
I am planning to go into counselling for police officers and military veterans. As a veteran of both the military and law enforcement I believe that I have the insight to be helpful to both groups, and share a common ground with them that may make it easier for them to open up to me.
