I've been in the Blue Line Family since I was 18 years old. I joined the Police Explorer program and realized within the first week that I wanted to be a police officer. I met my future husband in the program. He is now a sergeant with the CHP and a Marine vet. Since joining the Blue Line Family, I've been to too many Officer's funerals. Each one hurts equally because in this family, what happens to one of us, happens to all of us.
