Mrs. Officer, Mrs. Officer
RC: Growing up in a black neighborhood there was always a perception that only lame dudes who couldn’t get chicks and that got bullied, and “butch” type women with chewed up cuticles joined the police force. You don’t seem to fit the description so how did you get into law enforcement? Is this something you always wanted to do?
Jineal: I had no intentions of ever being a uniformed police officer. I had hopes of being a parole and/or probation officer. I had aspirations of being able to help those who wanted help getting their lives back on track. After getting hired with Nevada Department of Public Safety-Parole and Probation I realized that wasn’t the job for me. While in the DPS police academy I switched to Highway Patrol, because all of the troopers I met seem really happy. I have now been a State Trooper for 10 years and 9 months.
