Share your #wearthebadge story

Since its debut at the end of 2018, MCPA's Wear the Badge series has connected with tens of thousands of people across Minnesota and around the world.  The stories are especially popular with young people exploring law enforcement as a career and ordinary citizens hoping to get a better idea of what it is really like to protect and serve in the 21st Century.

The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association is honored to share your personal stories.  It doesn't matter if your career path was straight and to the point or whether you followed a road less traveled.  Help us spread the word about policing and why others should #wearthebadge.  Please pass along the officer's name (or your name), rank and years of service.  You should include a photo or two of the person at work or doing something they love.  Also include answers to these quick questions:

           1. Why did you choose policing as a career?

           2. What do you love about being a cop? 

           3. Any advice for someone considering a career in law enforcement? 

You can send your submissions to [email protected] and our staff will take it from there. Thanks in advance for your help. The more stories we can get out there (and share!), the stronger the impact our Wear the Badge efforts will be.
