Editor's Note:  Originally, this section was intended for people who want to join the ranks of law enforcement.  But, after we began to research it, we realized that there is a wealth of information here to help other criminal justice practitioners (like courts, corrections, etc.); the families and friends of potential criminal justice workers to better understand the nature of the job.  Perhaps, by coming closer to understanding to what your criminal justice professional has been exposed, you will understand how your police officer, deputy sheriff or corrections official reacts.
