Kelly Keith once lead drug busts, posed as a murderer for hire, and was part of a prostitution sting in his previous life as undercover officer for the Winnipeg Police Service. The Blue Bombers' longtime head of security remembers a time when he would wear street clothes, speak differently and do everything he could to look less like a cop when he went undercover to buy drugs and make busts.

"Initially, it was scary," said Keith. "It was very uncomfortable every day and then the more drug buys I made, the more comfortable I got because I was able to realize how I should act, how I should talk and how to read people's behaviour if they recognized I was a cop. It was an adrenaline rush.

"I posed as a murder for hire three times... I didn't kill them obviously," he added with a laugh.

He got a job as a cadet with the Toronto police right after he graduated school in 1984, and eventually made his way back to Winnipeg in 1988 to join the police force. He's spent six years with the Vice Division and still works with the police today. It's his job history led him to a job opportunity with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
