Bonnie & Rocky Rokovitz – Brief Bio.
Bonnie’s dream of becoming a police officer was delayed by having to raise 3 youngins as a military wife. Since we weren’t born in the South (raised in Ohio) we got to Georgia as quick as we could in 1975. Bonnie continued the pursuit of her dream and became one of the first female deputies in 1981. She rose to the rank of Lieutenant in Woodstock, Ga and retired from law enforcement in 2002 due to an on the job injury. Seeing Bonnie was having so much fun policing and our marriage was on the rocks, I decided to police too in the hopes of rekindling the spark we began together in 1965. It worked, the magic was back, and I began with the Cobb County Georgia Police Department in 1983 and rose to the rank of Sergeant. (Yep, even now she still outranks me). I retired from full time policing in 2005 and part time college campus policing in 2016. We loved being able to protect and serve the citizens of Georgia as police officers and a Christian couple (along with a few Krispy Kreme donuts as a bonus). Bonnie and I are now active in many senior citizen activities.
We have three (no longer youngins) children – two boys and a girl. The extended family is still growing and we also have 3 granddaughters and 1 grandson. Various dogs and cats spread throughout the family. Family creed – R5F: Remember Faith, Family, Friends, Freedom & Fun.
I collect stamps, police memorabilia, police patches, matchbox police cars & tri-five chevys models, and Bonnie loves decorating and collecting purses. If you have a postcard with a map of your area that would be GREAT. We could visualize you looking at the stars as we look at the same stars.
