A "Typical" Day in the police force goes a lot like...

"There is no typical day! I just know for sure when I get on, that I'm going home that night," says Jennifer. While she knows that no day will be like the last, patrol officer Jennifer Perez is certain that this job provides her with fulfillment and purpose. Delia, a Field Training Officer, gets the opportunity to train others in the field. If you have seen the film Training Day, you have an idea of what Delia does. In the film, Denzel Washington's character takes the new recruit out to show him the ropes on his first day. Unfortunately, Denzel's character turns out to be a corrupt cop. Delia does this, except, according to her, "ethical and nicer." Teaching new recruits how to handle the situations that they will encounter in the field exemplifies leadership and service.

Elizabeth Sosa's work is a bit different. As a Supervisor of Placement, she oversees "placement matches for youth and supervising the youth that are court ordered to residential treatment facility." Her day involves reviewing case history in order to best serve our youth on probation. With her position, it is all about building relationships with the children and their families du​r​ing the duration of the program. "As a probation officer, being able to build a rapport with the youth and the family will assist in the youth being successful on probation," she says.

KAPPA DELTA CHI SISTERS SHARE THEIR STORIES AS LAW ENFORCEMENT PROFESSIONALS

The theme of conference this year is "Create Your Legacy". How fitting for a sisterhood that is so young, yet so strong. In 28 years we have build over 50 chapters with thousands of active sisters, seven colonies and countless alumna across the nation and around the world. Most of us started as strangers, others…on a bit of a more personal level. Below are just a few stories of sisters who had a different start to this crazy, loving, oh so unique world we call KDChi. And even a few who havn't started...yet :)
