Kevin & Sully invited Lauren, a female police officer into the studio for an episode. Kevin met Lauren through social media and was intrigued by her because she was local and that she is a female cop in a society such as today.
They brought her in to discuss some of the challenges of becoming a police officer, what it's like to be a female cop and how difficult it is to be a police officer in today's society.
Lauren started out by working at a Federal prison facility as a jailor at 20 years old. From there she moved to the road as a patrol officer. She says that it wasn't as difficult of a transition as she imagined and everyone on the force was very welcoming. They treated her not as a woman, but as a fellow officer. She did agree that some agencies or municipalities have this issue, but she was fortunate. The most nerve racking part of being on the road, for her, was her first day. She got her first call at 7am and blanked out. She called her commanding officer and he helped her through it. Since there it's been a pretty smooth ride. Lauren explains that working in the jail gave her some much needed experience for how to deal with criminals in the outside world. "Oh ya, you get to know them, they call me Barbie", she laughed. "I'd see one come in and I'd be like, damn your back in here, what for now?" Surprisingly enough, on the road, people tend to gravitate to her during situations. Kevin asks if she has problems with women because they are typically "catty" with other women, especially ones with authority over them. Lauren explained that they gravitate to her as well! Kevin wonders if it's because women can be deemed more trustworthy and male police officers tend to be looked at as a threat, due to unforeseen reasons, in today's society. They all talked relationships in the first responder fields and how tough that is to navigate, as well as, firemen being the better job over a cop.
Kevin, Sully and Lauren had a great time with a lot of laughs. The boys have already invited her back to do a separate episode in the future! They joked with her about being a gorgeous female cop and talked about how they would have her arrest them on purpose. Go see for yourself at
