I am so lucky! I get to go out a couple times a month and play police officer...for real. (Yes, I have a gun and a badge!) I don't get paid to do this, I am a volunteer. In exchange for the time I put in every month, the department trains me and helps me maintain my police certification through the State of Florida. I would say there are probably many people who don't like or enjoy the profession they are in...I am fortunate...I have two careers, decorator and police officer. I sincerely enjoy both of them.
I love the days I go out on patrol! It is so great to interact with people in different situations. I enjoy hanging out with my fellow officers and feel like I am still a part of something really important. Because I am a volunteer, I get to choose the days I come in and who I ride with for the most part. Who wouldn't love all that???
