Chad Johnson is keeping our streets safe after a career in the NFL

Chad Johnson:
"I use the Patriots for example, they're in the Super Bowl. They're always prepared for their big moment. When that big moment arrives they take care of business. That's kind of like we are here in Bossier."
 
Chad Johnson played for three different NFL teams but  playing football was his second passion, right behind a career in law enforcement.
 
Football got him 2-state championship rings while playing at Evangel, and the chance to play major college football at Texas Tech, as well as a chance to dip his toe in the professional game but he's always known he wanted to be a police officer.
 
Johnson joined the Bossier Police Department in may of 2016.
 
He says while there are similarities between football and law enforcement, but if you make a mistake on the football field you might get yelled at by your coach. 
 
If you make a mistake here the consequences could be much worse.
 
Chad Johnson:
"Football is a game, life isn't. In law enforcement you deal with life on a daily basis. I just truly have a calling on my life to help those who aren't able to help themselves at times. I understand that everyday I wake up and put this uniform on I'm going to encounter that."
