I wanted to take part in the Virtual Dementia Tour because I’ve met a lot of people who are living with Dementia through attending Singing for the Brain sessions, and I thought it would help me understand the condition better and understand what challenges those people are facing on a daily basis.
It was an amazing experience and I’m really glad I did it.
Have you ever arrested anyone?
What inspired you to be a Police Officer?
What do you eat?
Have you any brothers and sisters?
Do you like your job?
Just a few of the many questions I have been asked during my tour of schools throughout the south of Bedfordshire over the past few enjoyable weeks.
I remember the first day I turned up at Police Headquarters in a brand new suit and entered what we commonly referred to as the dream factory.
I had always wanted to join the police, I wanted to catch burglars and make people feel safe.
And I can honestly say it’s a decision that I’ve never regretted – I look forward to going to work every single day.
