^^^Me, My Mom & My Dad on the day of his graduation from the DC Police Academy in 1988.
^^^ 25 years laters and my dad is preserving quite nicely. Don’t ya think?
^^^ My Brother, Gino, Dad & Charles
My dad joined the Metropolitan Police Department of D.C. at the young age of 22. I was one years old. What people should realize is that D.C. in the early 90’s was completely different from the gentrified D.C. you see today. When my dad graduated from the police academy, D.C. was known as the murder capital of the U.S. Fast forward to present day … I couldn’t be more proud of my dad for his 25 years of service with MPDC. I could tell you many stories of what life was like growing up with a police officer for a dad. Some stories are funny, others mind boggling and there are quite a few that would make your skin crawl (unless you’re into CSI) … But all them are stories I’m sure any family with relatives in law enforcement could relate to. You may think of him as a dirty copper, the 5.0, or the Po Po … But to me, he’s my dad and I love him for all he’s sacrificed and all he’s given in the line of duty. Cheers to a much deserved retirement coming soon!
Also, Yes … He does know I have a blog and is supportive and typically protective at the same time haha. And Yes … It’s quite possible he did a background check on Charles when we first started dating ;) #daddysgirl
