Shaquille O’Neal, frequently referred to simply as Shaq, is one of the National Basketball Association’s most dominant basketball players. O’Neal first played for the Orlando Magic, then later signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, and now plays for the Phoenix Suns. Heralded since he entered the league at 20 years of age, his 14-year career has been one of the most impressive stints of any player in NBA history and this holds true to an even greater extent for centers.
O’Neal left LSU for the NBA after three years. However, he promised his mother he would eventually return to his studies and complete his bachelor’s degree. He fulfilled that promise in 2000, earning his degree in business.
Subsequently, O’Neal earned an MBA in 2005, and began work on his doctoral degree in Human Resource Development in 2006.
Off court, O’Neal has maintained a high level of interest in the workings of the police department, and has become personally involved in law enforcement. O’Neal went through the police academy in Los Angeles, and became a reserve officer with the L.A. Port Police.
In March 2005 he was given an honorary U.S. Deputy Marshal title and named the spokesman for the Safe Surfin’ foundation. He will serve an honorary role on the task force of the same name, which tracks down sexual predators who target children on the Internet.
Upon his trade to Miami, O’Neal began training to become a Miami Beach reserve officer. On December 8, 2005, he was sworn in as a reserve officer.
O’Neal has expressed an interest in working with the special victims detective unit, to stop crimes against children; he stated that he does not simply want to be involved in “photo ops” but wants to “get down and dirty” and make arrests.
