Be independent Since you cannot depend upon your partner to give you company on all evenings, you need to be responsible for your own socializing.Keep a network of friends and co-workers with whom you can go shopping on a weekend or hang out at a café.
You are not only sure to feel warm and safe with a person who you know is trained to take on anti-socials but as his/her partner you will even get to enjoy the respect from people who appreciate the important though difficult job a cop has.
And then there is the glamour of the uniform – when dressed to the hilt in a ceremonial uniform, every cop looks his/her smartest best.
Learn to give your partner space On those occasions when your partner is off-duty, you may be tempted to bond with him/her through conversation.
While this is normal, be prepared for times when your partner may be worried about a case and is likely to tune out even while you are talking.
At the same time though let your partner know that you are there for them should they need your support for some reason.
