did you have for this job? Got a 4 year bachelor degree and went through SKILLS. Did you always want Ramsey? He applied for every department he could, especially a lot of smaller ones in Southern MN. When he got the job offer at RC he took it and now really enjoys it. What's the hardest part of your job? "That's a tough question"
He really enjoys the job but at some points, which he calls "the cycle", he has to juggle training, coordinating and regualar duties and it can get hectic. Also the complaints that come with being a sergeant from both other deputies and the public. How does the job affect your family? He says it's gotten better over time but in the beginning when he worked 4 on 4 off 4 on 3 off shifts in was hard because of having young kids. After getting traffic, he got switched to a 5 on 2 off schedule which makes it much easier. It does cause stress in the family but they are used to it now. What else have you done besides patrol? Started in detention for 6 years
Court bailiff for 1 year
Firearms coordinator for 'a few'
Water Patrol for 9 years
SWAT for 13 years
