Why did you want to be in law enforcement?

Shannon: I have many family members in law enforcement and emergency services and knew that I wanted a career that is rewarding, challenging and different every day.
Tell us about an average day for you at work
Cooper: I am currently on the graveyard shift, so I am keeping an eye on the sleeping community and responding to calls as needed. I try to be proactive while on shift by doing business checks and watching for impaired drivers.
Shannon: When not on a call, I try to stay busy with self-initiated activities. I like to get out on foot patrol and do business checks and also visit construction sites.
When you aren’t working, what do you do for fun?
Cooper: I spend most of my free time outside. I like to spend time with family, barbecuing and playing outside. I also try to golf as often as I can, even in the winter!
Shannon: I also like to spend time outside and exercising. I enjoy going to the movies and going out to eat, but I also like to stay home and read a good book.
What neighborhood are you assigned to?
Cooper & Shannon: Cooper is assigned to Canyon Creek and Northridge and Shannon is assigned to Baxter Farm and Flatiron Meadows. We both make sure to help patrol the areas, assist residents with concerns and participate in designated community events and meetings.
What do you love about working in Erie?
Cooper: I grew up in Erie and went to school here, and love that I have come full circle and get to work now in this community. Erie has grown so much since I was a kid, but it still has that small town feel. I like that I know many families here still and that I get to work in such a supportive community.
Shannon: I love that the department is small and so personable and that we receive so much support from the department as a whole. I also really enjoy working in a community that is so friendly to all of the officers.
