For the February 2018 issue of POLICE Magazine, we asked readers to submit their answers to the following question:

What is your dream law enforcement job?

My last position as a LEO was chief of the marine patrol. They gave me a boat, all the gas I needed, and paid me to go out and get a sun tan 😂.

I love being a member of the SWAT team. There's nothing like it in the world.

Many of my friends have promoted up, but I'm still happy being a patrol officer. I'll continue to do it until I retire out, God willing.

I'd like to be a member of the dive team.

It may sound cliché, but I strive to be-come chief of my own department one day. I'm willing to put in the work and deal with the politics so I can give officers the support they need and make a difference from the top down.

I'm living the dream. I'm a motor officer. I get to look cool, spend my shift riding, and work some great details with the best bunch of people I've ever worked with.

I've always had my heart set on becoming a homicide detective.

K-9 handler is my dream job. It's competitive and there aren’t that many positions at my department, but I'm determined to get there, even if I have to go to another agency to do it.

Being an FTO is more fun and rewarding than I ever thought it could be.
