Anderson Silva Training To Become A Police Officer

Anderson Silva told the media this week that he is in training to become a police officer in Los Angeles.
Silva told Folha de Sao Paulo that he’s serious about becoming a cop, because the job is one that runs in his family.

Silva said this on his new career path:

“I train every morning, take my kids to school and go to the police school, I’m studying at the Los Angeles School Police Department. I’m studying to become a police officer.”

Silva said he wont actually be putting on a uniform anytime soon but that he is just doing the training work in honor of his uncle in Curitiba.

“It’s a personal wish, something that will make my uncle happy, He thought it was a little weird that I’m not doing this here (in Brazil), but it wasn’t the right time. My brothers are police officers, my nephews are police officers. It’s a family thing.”
