A Day In The Life Of Detective Gomez: Observation Essay.

958 words - 4 pages

My day started out just like any other with the exception of going to see my bother in law. I commenced to make my way to his precinct in Inglewood. He works for the Narcotics Division as a detective. He has been doing this for 5 years and has slowly worked his way up the ladder of success. He was gracious enough for letting me tag along for the day to see how he works. "Not every day is the same, each day brings a new adventure," he stated. Luckily for me today he was not going to be going on any big bust or raid. I was to spend my day watching and listening tohim inside a federal building. He is on the hunt for a major player for a gang called the Crenshaw Bloods Gangster Mafia, today he will be listening to the phone tab and gathering intelligence for his department.Once I arrived at the precinct and met Detective Gomez he processed me for clearance.

I guess I must have passed with flying colors because I was the handed a badge that said "visitor".I followed Detective Gomez to his office where he picked up a black briefcase and a cell phone. The office was nice, full of pictures of my sister and of my nephew. His desk was nicely organized and clean, not full of clutter and paperwork like the other desks that we passed on the way there. He had no window to the outside, which made the room seem somewhat claustrophobic. The light bulb overhead flicked and lit the room poorly. The carpet was slightly stained with coffee, which made it seem like this was the worst office of the department; this in deed was the case.
