Along with the struggle on maintaining a love life, Detective Jack Stratton knows a thing or two about the dangers of being an officer!
In the sometimes thankless job of a police officer, responsibility is your number one priority. It can be a huge burden, and in the same capacity, it can be an honor. Not even taking the erratic hours into consideration and the emotional toll it takes on someone, but it also requires time to decompress. And for some cops, letting go seems impossible. Even when an officer isn’t on the clock, he’s always mentally on duty. To be an officer, it is not simply his occupation, but part of who he is. It affects how he sees the world and the people in it, what he thinks about, and even how he moves.
Another huge consideration is the need for adaptability and routine. The life of an officer is unpredictable and he can be called out to work at a moment’s notice, so it’s essential to be able to adapt to different circumstances on the fly.
Now the most important aspect about the life of Detective Jack Stratton is the danger, not just for him but for those he loves as well. When he walks out the door for work, there is no guarantee he will return home safely.
While the life of an officer is a sacrifice, the reward is immense. It is a way of life…the life of a hero.
