True Life Police Stories

The following pages are not meant to shock you, but some of them might. A Police Officer's life is full of death and what most people would call unusual situations. To remain a Police Officer a person has to learn to deal with the stress and emotional ups and downs. These stories are meant to give you a little window into what was going on in my life during the 7 years I was a Deputy Sheriff.

I am not proud of some of the reactions I had during my time as a Police Officer. I grew cold and cynical, I hope some of these stories will show how that process took place and why. I hope to add to these stories as I find the time to compile more.

"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved--you and your household." Acts 16:31

Please pray everyday for our Police Officers. They have a very tough job. We cannot expect them to wallow in the filth of society day in and day out without our full support and our prayers. Who among us is willing to give our lives for people we don't know or for people who don't care about us? That is what they are willing to do everyday they put on their uniform and leave home.

Also pray for all the other public service authorities; doctors, firemen, nurses, ambulance crews and clergy. A person cannot see pain and death all the time without being touched by it in some way.

Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? If not click here to find out how to get one.
