Started at age 23 with the Prospect Heights Police Department. Promoted to detective in December 2006.
We have good benefits in law enforcement. The pension— after 20 years I get half of my last salary.... I can retire when I'm 43.... I'm back in school now and I'm getting a master's.... [Detective work is] not like on TV where you just go and find out whodunit. You need to do a lot of follow-up; it takes a lot of time. You have to have all your eggs lined up.... [Police officers make] too little. We work holidays, nights. It's not surprising to work 20 hours at a time. We put our lives out there for our community.
