My name is Officer Faurot. I have been with Irving PD for twelve years. Before coming to IPD, I grew up in Marshall, Michigan. Upon completing college, I began searching for Police Departments across the nation and stumbled onto The Irving Police Department.
What caught my attention with IPD was the salary. I was shocked to learn that it only took six years to top out in pay. At that time, most of the departments I came across required that you complete twenty years of service before you were topped out. Also, I took into consideration the weather aspect of policing. Being from Michigan, I didn’t want to work in snow eight months out of the year. Lastly, Texas was a booming State, and Michigan didn’t have a lot to offer. My father worked in Law Enforcement, and he told me that working in the South would make for a more enjoyable career. Looking back at his advice, I can honestly say he was correct; getting hired by the Irving Police Department has completely changed my life.
