I just took my test to become an officer, but I have some concerns about juggling my work life and my family. How do you balance both?

Imma keep it a buck with you, work life balance isn't exactly part of the job description as a police officer

It's not the easiest thing to achieve in our field but you can do little things that help like having friends that aren't in law enforcements, have hobbies that are far away from what you do as an officer, and really try to focus on your personal life when you're not on duty

Here's the secret: ya don't!

As a cop? Rough time, friend. When you're not on duty, you can essentially be called in whenever, so take this into consideration.

Talk to your superior and tell him that you have other things to manage and cannot be on duty 24/7. A lot of cops put their jobs before their families, but this doesn't mean you should do the same.

It's hard especially if you have small kids. Expect to show up late or not at all. Put your foot down for the important things. This year I have to work Christmas I have a 5 yr old and a 2 yr old I will be there for breakfast on my extended lunch break 🥲
