Do you feel empowered in your professional life and in your personal life Explain why or why not What changes could you make for the better I do not feel empowered in my professional life at all As a police officer I find that I am a second class citizen and am always wrong until I prove myself right I also do not get some of the same Constitutional protections that I am sworn to protect which I also feel is unfair For instance the Fifth Amendment states that a person has a right to remain silent and make no statements against their interest without having the opportunity to speak with an attorney paraphrasing Yet if I am subject to an internal investigation I do not have this right the only thing is they can not use it against me in a criminal trial Do not get me wrong the pay and benefits are excellent and I have too many years here to leave so I CHOOSE to stay However had I known what I know now I would have found another occupation I do feel empowered in my personal life I make sound ethical judgements and do volunteer work within the community as a sports coach for children and volunteer once or twice a month at the Veterans Hospital A combination of these things I find to be very rewarding to me which improves my quality of life which empowers me Response 2 In my professional life no I do not feel empowered at all In my personal life I feel some what empowered My professional life suffers due to the fact that I am presently not in my specified field thus forcing me to adhere to a job that is repetitive and falls under ludicrous policies made by people that read numbers generated by a computer with no knowledge of the job that they are supervising In my personal life I fell empowered because I choose to feel good about my self and my children regardless of what happens at my job I take a breathe and say it doesn t matter it will end today and we will do it again tomorrow something criminal justice professionals don t normally say For me to change this feeling of repetitive uselessness I would need to be in the profession that I chose and changing lives by helping people I enjoy teaching and I like to watch people learn and apply that learning to other people or situations for me to have that ability would make me perfect
