My name is Michelle Kotlik, and I’m a police officer for the Irving Police Department. I played collegiate soccer for Texas A&M University-Commerce for three years. It was a blast playing at such a high level, and it taught me many things that translated to my current career. An athlete can handle pressure in challenging situations and strives to be the best at their work. They are dedicated, disciplined, and hardworking. The same applies to police officers. Police officers handle many stressful situations, and we constantly strive to excel in our careers to serve our communities better. Whether you’re an athlete or a police officer, your background, race, culture, or ethnicity don’t matter. We train together, fight together, and win together.
