Before retiring from the entertainment industry in favor of becoming an emergency medical technician (EMT), Bobby Sherman was an American teen idol during the late 1960s to early 1970s. In 1970, Bobby Sherman was the most popular celebrity, receiving more fan mail than anyone else that appeared on the ABC Network at that time.

Bobby Sherman was born in Santa Monica, California, in 1943, but mostly grew up in a suburb in Los Angeles with his sister. In 1962, Sherman began his music career that would also launch him into acting. Both the singing and acting, while on the American Broadcasting Corporation’s network, had him appear as a regular on Shindig! and Here Comes the Brides. He’s also made guest appearances on a large number of different television series including American Bandstand, Honey West, and The Monkees. In 1974, after making a guest appearance on the series, Emergency! this would spark the fateful decision for Bobby Sherman to make a career change. Gradually, he stepped out of the spotlight, becoming an emergency medical technician.

Bobby Sherman also became a volunteer for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). As a volunteer, he taught first aid and CPR to the paramedics of the department. Eventually, he became a technical Reserve Police Officer with the LAPD in the 1990s until 2017. He was later promoted to the police department’s captain. In 1999, Sherman was recognized as LAPD’s Reserve Officer of the Year, as well as a deputy sheriff with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. He retired from that post in 2010.

Also in the 1990s, Bobby Sherman made a comeback after spending approximately fifteen years away from the spotlight. For the first time in twenty-five years, he performed before a live audience as part of 1998’s Teen Idol Tour. The first half of Bobby Sherman’s discography before becoming an EMT has ten studio albums, five of which became certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). He also has twenty-three singles to his credit prior to his hiatus from the spotlight.
