Career or Calling? Collierville’s Female Police Officers Talk
Sometimes you choose a job; sometimes it chooses you.
|Officers Kimbrell and Fitts|
Collierville Police Officer Summer Fitts talks about how she decided on a career in law enforcement:
"When I enrolled at the University of Memphis, my plan was to major in psychology. Then I took an introductory course in criminal justice. I knew after that first class that law enforcement was the career for me."
For other female members of Fitts’ police "family", the desire was already there. Madison Kimbrell and Amy Dabaldo both wanted a career where they would be doing something to help people on a daily basis. "I consider it a calling; there is nothing else I’ve ever thought about doing," said Dabaldo. Kimbrell said it’s about serving the community. She said talking with people on her daily patrol is where she learns exactly how to do that. "It could be something as simple as listening to someone who just needs to talk," she said.
