    Impressive resumes do NOT start out with “a police academy graduate”. I’ll STFU with the rest of my thoughts and try to be a little PC.

      Typical press release written by some marketing wonk who has no idea what they are talking about. I am sure she is cringing at that just as much as the rest of us. This is why I told the Marketing folks at my last business I wanted to pre-approve any and all materials in which my name appeared.

        I’m revising my resume and know exactly what that means. There’s a point in your career where you just leave stuff off unless it’s really relevant to the job.

      You’ve got me dying over here…

      Amazing what these days constitutes an “impressive resume”, isn’t it?

    • Jason says:

      Wait, so you mean I should stop listing on my resume that I graduated middle school? Dammit!

    • Disco says:

      Well would it sounds better than Police Academy dropout.
      At least she graduated.

    • Petro says:

      8 year veteran cop with fuzzy “part time” with two agencies and 6 years with another. Should have added high school diploma and valid driver license to beef it up.

    Congratulations, Rebecca. Having met you a couple of times at Great America I am not at all surprised that IWI brought you on. Your knowledge and experience were impressive, and I’m sure CPD is sad to see you go. Good luck with the new gig.

    That is the gnarliest press pic ever! If you told me it was a sci-fi book cover, I’d believe it.

    Congrats to her on the kickass job.

      Agreed. It looks like a tough chick cop policing the mean streets of a cyberpunk future gone wrong. High tech. Low life. Ammo is cheap and life is cheaper. She and she alone can bring down the corruption of the organized crime ring selling black market human organs and employ bizarre cyborg criminals.
