Victor Agosto is a desk officer at the central headquarters of the Chesterfield County, Virginia Police Department, with 21 years on the force. “Most servicemembers are still in service mode when they get out, and they want to continue to do something similar to what they were doing,” he said. Agosto was a Navy operations specialist; he served four years on active duty and 18 months in the Active Reserve.
He has seen all kinds of people succeed in the department. “People who have had no previous law- enforcement experience as well as those with years of experience can come here and succeed,” he said. “Some days will be more stressful than others, but the department will always take care of its own.”
