Hello there. My name is Debbie. I have been married to a police officer for 23 years. During that time, we have been through many interesting times. When i met and married him, he was a mounted patrol officer. Shortly after the birth of our first child, he went to auto theft and then onto crimes against persons, then homicide. While he was doing that, i went to nursing school and went to work in the ER in psychiatry. We had very interesting lives, discussing who had the worst smelling bodies to work with, the dead or the living without hygeine. People thought our lives were quite interesting. They were, the ER and the homicide unit, were always hopping. But our kids were young and he was called out at all hours and it was really stressful. so, after a particularly ugly baby death, he switched to a violent crimes task force. that was great for 4 years. He is now the Sgt over the Homicide unit. I am now working in medical management and our kids are in college. I don't know many police families that are happily married still, it seems to cause some sort of expiration date on marriages. But its all i know in my married life and i am pretty happy. He works crazy hours and is literally on call all the time. Our phones ring at night all the time. But he is so clever and so good at his job, and so compassionate to people in tragedies, that i wouldn't want it any other way. But anyway, that is how i am a cop's wife and proud of it. Debbie
