I want to be a Policeman

Have you ever wanted to be a policeman? I want to be a policeman because I will stop people from tagging and speeding. I will help people when they need directions. There are different kinds of police like F.B.I. and C.S.I. and more. A cop has a very cool uniform. Policemen have virtues like good citizenship, fairness and responsibility. The police do a very important job because they make the community a safer place. Being a policeman is very hard work. You have to go through training first so you have to be fit and healthy. Most policeman stay at work for a very long time. A policeman has lots of meetings. They have to make a plan about how to stop gang fights. A policeman catches the criminals and people who are breaking the law. They arrest drug dealers so that children don’t pick up this bad habit. They can drive a very fast police car or motor-bike. A policeman has to handle a slide around a very sharp corner when he is chasing a criminal. If you go too fast and a policeman sees you speeding, you will have to pull over on the side of the road. He will ask for your driver’s licence then he will give you a speeding ticket. If you have hydraulics in your car, you will get a fine. Although a policeman carries a gun he doesn’t just shoot the criminal. The gun is for protection. The policemen have a new gun which is called a tazer. It does not kill you but it gives you an electric shock. A policeman uses handcuffs so that the criminal does not attack him or run away. So if you go over the speed limit, slow down. If you do bad things like beat up a woman or kill someone, the police will find you guilty and you will go to prison. Once you’ve been in jail or committed a crime, the police will have track of all your records. A police record has all your incidents that will stay with you for the rest of your life. So if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime!
