“He just started calling me ‘Stick’ which was short for ‘F-Stick,'” Larkin revealed. “Once we got onto the streets, people started hearing me called ‘Stick’ from other officers and the way the street lingo goes, they thought my name was ‘Sticks,’ and it just turned into that. Nobody in my private life calls me ‘Sticks.’
Given his TV career, it goes without saying that Larkin has a fan base of his own. He currently has over 250,000 followers on Instagram, where he often posts about his work.
