RCR Homes, “Your Crossroads Builder”, would like to take a moment to say Thank You to all the Heroes Behind the Badge.  We want to say Thank You to all the police officers, sheriff’s deputies, corrections officers, detectives, parole officers, probation officers, SWAT team members, traffic cops, police supervisors, law enforcement managers, fire fighters, EMS personnel and police chiefs.

This week we would like to honor Officer Adam Garcia. Adam is with the Victoria Police Department. We asked him a few questions so we could get to know him better. Here is what he told us.

Any nicknames you have: Big A

Best memory as a child: Watching John Wayne movies with my father

Favorite music artist or song: Hair bands from the 80's

Favorite Concert you went too: Spazzmatics

Favorite place to eat locally: Mumphords BBQ

How long they have been in law enforcement? Almost 22 years

What made you become an officer? (any advice). Loved the excitement of getting the bad guy. Helping your fellow man and knowing the difference between right and wrong. Always and I mean always have integrity.

Is anything you want the public to know about you or about law enforcement: I'm human, I make mistakes but it's more publicized if I as a cop makes a mistake, even a small one. We're not robots, we're just like anyone else. We feel what you are feeling. But because we are sometimes looked at as outsiders we tend to just surround ourselves with other cops and depend on them to be there for you and shut others out. I have tons of friends and the majority are in LE and that's the majority of all cops who are like this

If you know of someone who deserves to be honored please fill out the brief questionnaire below. Each week our station will be honoring a law enforcement person on air.  Heroes Behind the badge is brought to you by KIXS 108 and RCR Homes Your crossroads builder.
