The Security Dude

DSCN3106I figured that it is nice to put a face to a blog and I recently had my picture taken at work. This is me working as a Security Officer which is one of the things that retired law enforcement officers do after they retire.

The job itself is a stripped down version of what I did working as a full time cop, but the benefits of reduced responsibility, reduced stress and crazy working hours far outweighs the deficits of remaining on the force until it kills me. The demands that are placed on cops is ridiculous and if you have watched the news recently the respect is lost. So in taking an early retirement I have now become “The Security Dude”.

  3. I can see things in your energy patterns when I look this picture.Would you like to know what I see?!

      • OK! Well, your arms and hands look really full of energy like you have lots to give (it appears almost as if your hands are dripping with energy). But your arms and hands are disconnected with your power (upper abdomen), voice (throat) and heart. You appear to be weak at your core suggesting that at some time your self esteem and sense of self value has been knocked. This does impact our endocrine system as that core instability means we get more easily tossed around by our hormones – mood, appetite temperature control etc.
        What to do about it, you may ask?!
        I don’t think there are any short cuts in healing. We need to get to the bottom of the issues that cause the instability, let go of the pain and in time we regain stability. This has been my journey really and like you imply on your blog about your book it is no mean feat!

      • This is going to take some time to absorb and think about. Thanks for the input.

  4. Less stress is great!!!

    You look great, glad to see being a LEO did not defeat you or your spirit. Speaking as a LEO wife I can not wait until my husband can retire and be home safe with us.

    One of the comments about the energy and power in your hands is spot on. Great aura about you too. Keep up the good work in your blog.

  14. As a former LEO myself you said it so well. Much respect. So nice to have a face to put with your blog. Thanks for sharing.

    How brave! Not sure what an LEO equates to here in the UK (police officer?) but glad you are free of those unimaginable stresses. πŸš”

    Lookin’ sharp! My husband has worked in State Corrections for 8 years πŸ™‚

  18. Madoc says:

    Obviously a minimalist- you certainly have way less stuff on your belt than you would when you were an LEO! I wonder how you guys stand with all that stuff on.

    To that I say CONGRATULATIONS!
