I know what you mean about being found out. I spent 10 yrs as a bluecoat and 15 yrs as a detective and secretly dressed every chance I could. Always the tough ghetto cop. I also did 33 yrs in the Army, 8 active 25 Reserve, always the wise old SGM. What nobody ever knew was I most of planning enfemme and some of my most successful missions were planned as Gerri Dee. I just wish I had accepted who I was completely back then, instead of wasting all these years till I did accept this gift.
Hello everyone, I am hoping that this grop can help me be able to share a bit about myself. I love who I am while at home, but so scared about anyone I work with ever learning about it. Whew just to say that much is a relief! I look forward to more! Happy Easter!
thanks ladies, my dept is much more like trisha's dept we are behind the times as far as this kind of stuff is concerned, our mayor doesnt even want female officers on at all, and well, i hate to say it, but, he runs our dept. our chief just lays down and does what ever the mayor tells him to do. i should really just look for a new dept but i really like working there. Randi, your probably right, it would be harder to get a job after transition rather than just sticking it out.
I like to say hello and welcome Erin. I'm retired, although I didn't emerge while working 30 years in law enforcement. The department I worked for was not tolerate during the years I worked. Alot has changed since those day's. I'm so delighted to hear that more and more law enforcement agencies are opening up to accepting those of us that are and have transistioned.... My best wishes goes out to you where your HR allows you to continue serving your community as you transistion... Trisha
I want to say hello to Erin and wish her the very best. I have 11 years with my current department. I also want to go to HR and schedule a meeting with the Chief for that, what will be a very scary moment for me in my professional career. I know that I'm probably still about 2 years from that meeting, but it will come, it's on my long range calander (Goal's). I can only say that please continue to work in the field you have chosen, I know my Job, it not really what I consider a Job, I love what I do, and that makes it more a part of my life than a job. I think it will be easier to make the change from within my department than to transition and to try to get back into our profession. Just my opinion, based on my situation with my department.
Hi everyone, im Erin im a PO last 5 years in KC area. i am so glad there is a group for us. i have decided to transition this year and will soon be out to my entire family very soon, but i am very very nervous to come out at work, so much so i am thinking of changing careers. I really really love my job and would really hate to do anything else. I have even thought of leaving then transitioning then comming back. any advice?? Caroline, i am so happy that you had such a good reception, i hope mine will be that way too.
In this past year I spoke with 2 dozen PO's from DC/ Arlington, VA / NOVA about transgender issues at one of theri regional meetings. They were really receptive. The focus was on what they could to help TG offenders. I am thinking your colleagues will be just fine. BTW, I am out to the world... on the job (Arlington, VA) and the community I serve. All have been terrific. When I transitioned, I received about 100 emails of support and guess how many saying negative things? Zero... nada... zippo...
If you were "okay" with people before you transition they will be supportive. Best of luck and if you need some local support, look me up: Caroline Grace Temmermand
