Summary

I have been working in the criminal justice field for over 7 years and most of it was done within the Sheriff's Department. I think my leadership skills, knowledge of the job and facility, training, and own personal experiences would make me a good candidate for the Corporal Position. I also have a passion for helping others and sharing my knowledge. That is why i like being a training Officer and helping the new hires as much as i can. I believe i would make a great fit for the Corporal position.
