Chief Jesus "Eddie" Campa: Why I Became A Police Officer

Question: Chief Campa, Why Did You Become a Police Officer?

I became a police officer for the same reason many people do, family tradition.

I was raised by a single mother and really had no male role model to follow.  My uncle and aunt made sure that I had everything that my mother could not provide me because she was out working two or three jobs to provide a home for my grandmother and me.  

I spent my summers with them and my weekends with them as well.  I knew that I wanted to follow in my uncle’s foot steeps.  

It is because of him that I choose to become a police officer.  I also like the fact that I can see firsthand the impact on life that I make when I take a criminal off the streets.
