From behind the patrol car, to the screens of hollywood and now a rising star oN social media, introducing Officer Parker
He is a Police Officer in the Baltimore Police Department. Gregory is also a social media influencer and a self-described fitness fanatic. He talks about his mission and passion to motivate himself and others to excel in all aspects of their lives. Gregory discusses his experience as a police officer, keeping a positive, mental, and physical condition in spite of the job stress. Video of a foot pursuit where Gregory caught a suspect caught the eye of television show producers and landed him a spot in a popular reality TV show, hosted by NFL players.
Today, Officer Parker is a strong and swiftly rising social media Influencer as well as a proud member of the Baltimore Police Department. Everyday he upholds his oath to serve and protect his community in person, and steps forward to bring motivation, insight, and inspiration to his community online.
It would be easy to look at him as he is today – strong, fit, confident, well-known and respected, and think he’s always been that way. But behind the badge and the smile is a story of hardship and challenges that tends to break those without the willpower and grit he has.
The car chase and foot pursuit that was captured on film that day is a completely opposite picture of another car chase he’d been involved in years ago.
Gregory Parker is one of six kids. Gregory learned about adversity from a young age. His childhood consisted of a father who thought nothing of using drugs or beating his wife in front of his kids. Young Gregory has vivid memories of seeing his father almost kill his mother, and of being in the car when his father attempted to flee the police. His father crashed the car into a tree and abandoned his kids as he fled on foot.
'Greg now uses his influence and past to inspire others, and it's working. The young officer has exploded on social media, garnishing over 350k followers across his social media platforms. If you have not given much attention to the rising star, you may want to start.
This article was inspired by his recent interview with American Snippets.
