After finishing high school, Steve took an unconventional route, spending a gap year working at a local beach hotdog stand. During his time there, Steve enjoyed getting to know the regulars and tourists equally. Unfortunately, the hotdog stand’s location made it easy for pickpockets to take advantage of crowded beachgoers, and Steve even saw situations where individuals were harassed without any consequence. These experiences fueled his determination to pursue a career in law, driven by a desire to bring justice to those who had been wronged and to create a safer community.

Motivated by this newfound purpose, Steve committed himself to higher education, earning a law degree to equip himself with the knowledge and skills necessary to make a meaningful impact. He began down the path towards becoming a Police Prosecutor because he wanted to find justice for the victims and hold the perpetrators accountable for their actions. After a short time as a Legal Aid, Steve soon came to realise that while bringing victims justice is fulfilling - he would prefer there weren’t any victims to begin with. This desire to have a more direct impact on stopping criminals led Steve to transition into a career with law enforcement.

He joined his local Police Department, fully immersing himself in the demanding training that refined his skills in evasive/defensive driving, negotiations, and life-saving techniques like CPR and First Aid. Steve’s commitment to the community and strong work ethic allowed him to progress through the ranks swiftly, earning him respect and recognition as a valuable team member.

While Steve found satisfaction in his role, he couldn’t shake the feeling that there might be a more significant challenge awaiting him. This led him to contemplate a change, and, with a mix of uncertainty and determination, Steve decided to explore opportunities abroad. Presented with a job opportunity overseas that promised to test his skills in a new country, he aimed to face fresh challenges and contribute to law enforcement in a different environment.
