    Stephen O.

    Law Enforcement SME-writer

    United States - Portfolio: 20

    Since age 5, Stephen harbored a pre-conceptualized childhood passion to become a police officer. He eventually studied Criminology, English and Writing in the early 1990s. His dream would not come to fruition in the traditional sense; Stephen was hampered by cancer affliction. Many surgeries would be endured before he was deemed physically fit-enough to compete for a badge. After his cancer treatments, healing processes, and rejuvenation periods, Stephen engaged in his childhood dream as a law enforcement officer, sworn-in on 09/11/01. Yes, that particular day! Stephen enjoyed an illustrative police career, garnering "Officer of the Year" in 2006. He applied for advanced police instruction in Field Training new recruits and became a Field Training Officer (FTO) to help shape the face of his department for years to come. Stephen thoroughly loved training the newly-hired cops. His police career was abruptly ceased by cancer recurrence; he launched a writing career in 2012.
