Thanks to the people who made this fantastic tribute ! Very personal to my family and all families that have lost loved ones who were just doing their job and protecting us all . God bless .

john Brancazzu @ 1/29/2015 7:42 AM

The ones that Bash the police would have no problem calling for there help when they need it. sadly to much negativity when a police officer makes a mistake but rarely praised for all the good they do.this is the medias fault for always focusing on the misshapes ,sadly thats what sells. Im also to blame for buying into the trash . im truly sorry for this and im looking at the whole picture now. sometimes i also forget your human. you got family's too. you bleed ,feel , and risk your lif's for strangers every day. may GOD BLESS YOU ALL. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. john brancazzu

police officers deserve the same respect as our great military,,for without them defending our population on the home front we would sink back to the violent days of the 1800's,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,thank you to officers thru out the country,,god bless.

Humanizing the Badge @ 1/29/2015 10:40 PM

Thank you for sharing this on our behalf! And thank you to everyone for their service.

Sue Magner @ 1/30/2015 4:30 AM

My husband just retired from being a police officer for over 40 years. He has seen it all. The words he left with every day were I love you, be safe and come home to me. These men and women are "warriors" and are no different then vets except they are the line between good and the evil in the world here at home instead of abroad. When was the last time you thanked a police officer for doing his job? Did you know that in the brotherhood the saying is putting on the badge is putting on a target on your back. This is was not always this way. Many people do not respect the police any more, that is until they find themselves in a situation where they need them. A mugging, road rage, a burglary, etc.. Please people out there don't ignore these men and women, THANK THEM FOR THEIR SERVICE just like we do the service men and women as these are the forces that protect us here at home. My husband was one of those men who would have put his life on the line for you any day of the week.

Pat young @ 1/30/2015 4:34 PM

i am married to an asst police chief. I pray each day when he leaves that God will bring him home safely. The world has changed so much. People have no respect for the badge anymore. God bless all our Heros out in badges and keep them safe

Linda @ 1/30/2015 7:44 PM

Thank you for your service and for protecting all of us. You risk your life everyday to serve and protect our communities and all the haters out there I hope and pray to God that you never need an officer, but wait no matter what you say or do that officer will be there even for you. Thank you to all the officers..... God bless

Rev Jerry L Williams @ 1/30/2015 8:02 PM

As a chaplain for police & Fire this is a real tribute to all who serve for our safety i know all who put on a badge to it with honer do it with out a second thought in the pass 2 months officers got a bad Rap and Disrespected for no reason thy are doing there job but you have Dome like Jackson or sharpton put there size 15 foot into there mouths thy had incised Riots and to me that is not a reverend so there titles need to be revoked and made the officers jobs a lot harder but with out police & fire this would be unsafe world to live in so this tribute from the wife's is a touching tribute to all who wear a badge Stand Brave stand strong & know we here who you serve Can See you Thanks for your loyalty

Guy Hissong @ 1/31/2015 7:38 AM

THANK YOU to those who had such kind and thoughtful hearts, in not only thinking about doing this, but contributing to it's production and support. Thank you to those who take the time to watch it, feel it, and especially share it. And a great big thanks to all of my Brothers and Sisters of Law Enforcement for continuing to realize, Yes! We are one big Family. And as you see, there are still great people out there who think and care about us. Thank You For Your Service...

Janet Kruger @ 1/31/2015 8:56 AM

POLICE LIFES MATTER. PRAYERS TOO ALL.

Patty Zehring @ 1/31/2015 9:28 AM

God bless our men and women in blue. This video should be seen by everyone in our United States.

Cindy McCann @ 1/31/2015 11:14 AM

My husband has been a Police Officer for 28 years. My son has been a Police Officer for almost 2 months. One is getting to retire. One is just starting his career. One of our daughters is married to a Police Officer. It hasn't been an easy life but it has been a rewarding life! I was a Police/911 Dispatcher so I know the ups and downs of their jobs. It hurts when the public demeans our brothers & sisters before all of the facts come out. But we are there to listen (if they choose to talk), hug, hold and sometimes wipe away their tears. This video was a wonderful tribute. Thank you for speaking up on behalf of all of us.

ron @ 1/31/2015 2:15 PM

Simply....Thank You!

Jason Lehman @ 1/31/2015 10:31 PM

Thank you all for your support... I am proud to say that I am a humble police officer who has created a program that works to reduce the number of officers who are killed in the line of duty as our mission is to reduce acts of violence between police and the community. Our Long Beach based nonprofit ("Why'd you stop me? WYSM) is effectively reducing the numbers of violent confrontations that are occurring in our city and surrounding cities within Los Angeles County. We want to spread our message to every community in this great country and beyond! There is no reason every police officer shouldn't be gaurunteed the right to make it home to kiss their child good night and crawl into bed with their spouse without having a chance of losing their life at the hand of a community member! Thank you to the amazing people who took the time to make this video and thank you to everyone who supports our countries protectors. We don't need police officers dying and the hands of community members and we also don't need community members dying at the hands of police officers. We have one of the answers and it begins with education and effective communication. God bless us all. Please visit www.wysm.org for more details on how you can do your part to help save a life!

Teresa LaGesse @ 2/1/2015 7:57 AM

#We see you. I thank you. I also want to thank the unseen heroes, Dispatchers, who also have your 6.

Michelle @ 2/1/2015 8:06 AM

This is a wonderful tribute. Being an officer is a difficult job. Being the family of an officer is just as difficult. Praying every day that they come home safely is one of the hardest parts as an officer's wife. I had nightmares sometimes that his fellow officers would show up to tell me he is not coming home. The nights that he has to work overtime and couldn't call home were the worst. Thank goodness there are cell phones now. Thank you to all you do and please continue to service our communities. Everyone else should continue to praise them for all they do; even if they make mistakes. Remember they are human too and place yourself in their shoes. I am sure that you would make a mistake once in a while too.

Patty @ 2/1/2015 8:40 AM

I have a very close family member who wears the blue. I am very proud of him. I see what he puts up with to save and help those who will ridicule him at the first chance. He is brave but he keeps his humor, as some days that might be all he has left. He has taken wonderful care of my daughter, and has been a fantastic father to my beautiful grand babies. I would say to all police officers, thank you for everything, and thank you for coming back, time after time, no matter what. May God watch out for each and every one of you.

Search Videos @ 2/1/2015 9:15 AM

Now that I have seen the video, it has lite a new peace in my mind with understanding why an Officer does drink.. Their call of duty is always open and they are ready to go to help anyone they can be of assistance to. I always thought a good cop would not drink.. Now I do understand why they do and it is to try and forget, but they never will. It is in their minds eye and will always be there.

Patricia Stroud @ 2/1/2015 9:18 AM

Please do forgive me for not adding my name to the last discussion... I did not see it until now..

Officer Kirk Seekins @ 2/1/2015 9:51 AM

Thank You We needed that

Todd Brechwald @ 2/1/2015 10:11 AM

Thank you to my parents who raised my brothers and I with love, strong values, respect, discipline and a sense of giving that has made us the men we are today. I've been honored to serve my country as a Marine and my state as a Trooper for 25 years. It is because of my family that I have the strength and dedication to carry on. It is because of my family that I do this job. They, as well as you, deserve the freedoms of speech, religious belief and to feel safe in your travels abroad as well as at home. To know that our children are safe in their schools and when that day comes, safe driving the roads to the adventures in their lives. You have honored me with that duty and I will not take it lightly. You have honored all who stand watch by acknowledging the struggles they go through every day and yet suit up for the next shift. Thanks to all who serve, have served and especially those who support us, because that is where our strength truly comes from.

Darleen P @ 2/1/2015 9:17 PM

I believe all Americans must respect our fellow men and women who put their lives on the line for us everyday!! Police officers, Sheriff Deputies make our safety their number one priority. Give them the respect they all deserve!!

Geraldean T. Bond @ 2/2/2015 4:01 AM

Every night my final post on Facebook is a prayer and in that prayer I ask that God watch over, and send His angels to safeguard, all of our men and women in uniform wherever and however they serve. This definitely includes our law officers. Thank you and God bless.

Alma Creigh @ 2/2/2015 4:33 AM

God Bless all of our officers who protect and serve. It takes special people to put on the uniform everyday. Thank you for such a beautiful tribute. #we see you

clay rhodes @ 2/2/2015 5:16 AM

oh hell yes 100% with all of you .js

clay rhodes @ 2/2/2015 5:18 AM

oh yes .100% with all of you .god bless be safe

marilyn @ 2/2/2015 6:11 AM

I would not want to live in a place where there were no wonderful POLICE OFFICERS who protect us 24/7. If an officer commits a crime in TIM BUCK TOO all police gets the blame in every city across Canada & the U.S.A. Where I live we have a FANTASTIC POLICE FORCE. no crime goes unsolved for very long. YES they put their lives on the front line for us every day & some creeps do not respect them as we were taught as young children, even in the schools we were taught to respect the Police . Thank you to this wife who had the couage to make this video & I pray it reaches millions of decent people but mostly the creeps with no respect for anyone.

Colleen Maria @ 2/2/2015 8:14 AM

God has blessed us with Warrior Angels like you. Thank you.

Maria A. Montanez @ 2/2/2015 9:57 AM

I want to thank my son-in-law Sheriff Franciso Estrada, for all this years he has being taking care of many ppl. He puts his life on the front line for all the ppl every day helping all of us to be save out there. He has done a great job together with the other police out on the street protecting ppl. and doing his duty. God will always be with him n the other police to protect them . Thanks to all the Sheriff's n police for protecting all of us....

Brett @ 2/2/2015 10:51 AM

And we hear you. We know the vocal negative is in the minority. We thank you for your support.

Ken Totura @ 2/2/2015 11:56 AM

I've never stopped hearing you. God bless you, our soldiers and anyone who fights for our freedom in America.

Adam Feazel @ 2/2/2015 1:35 PM

Me and my family would like to thank all who had a part in producing this. The message hit the heart behind my badge. It came at a time when I desperately needed it.

Mary @ 2/2/2015 2:19 PM

I am a mother with a mother's heart. Where are you now? This is the same question I ask myself every day. Is he safe? Is he still at work? Is he already home with his family? I heard bad news today about another policeman being shot. Where is he now, is he safe? There is another call of a small child being beaten to death by teenage boys. His heart is pounding, thinking, this could be my son. He has to bear the pain. Another man has committed suicide after killing his wife in a drunken rage. Was my son on this case? What horrible things he has to witness. Where is he now, is he safe. I know that I could not bare the things that he has to bare. He is flesh of my flesh. He is not this grown man that carries this big gun and goes out on the street to protect me. I am really afraid. There are no safe havens today, not for my son, not me, not you. So I pray and thank God he is safe at home in his bed tonight and try not to think about the tomorrows yet to come.

Denise @ 2/2/2015 2:50 PM

Thank you for all the work that you do for us, you touch so many lives in your line of duty. Thank you for always, always, taking care of us, we appreciate you. May God Bless each and everyone in the line of duty......

Mike @ 2/2/2015 4:24 PM

I served 29 years in law enforcement and this is one of the most touching videos ever at a time when all police officers need it most. Times and public sentiment have certainly changed; thank you for this!

KC @ 2/2/2015 6:21 PM

This video is such a true reflection of what we do, and what we see everyday. But it also depicts the devotion that our wives/ husbands and our family display as well. There is no certainty in our profession, other than we will come running to trouble when everybody else is headed the other way. So in conclusion thank you to all who posted this video, we need more of this. And thank you to the families of law enforcement officers for your undying support.

Esther @ 2/2/2015 6:57 PM

Thank you to all police officers everywhere for risking your life everyday for us. I respect you, honor you,& appreciate your service to us, & pray you will be safe. God bless you all! Also thank you U all branches of Military for your sacrifices and keeping us safe. I appreciate ,honor,& respect you all! God Bless yall! And God Bless America!

Paul Bax @ 2/2/2015 7:07 PM

WOW what a message. I am a retired Niagara Falls New York Police Officer my son became a Police Officer in the same Department after I retired. I too went through an era of people not liking the Police. I went on the job in 73 and nobody liked us after Vietnam we were part of the establishment. I am also a
Vietnam veteran. But as years passed things began to change and people wanted to be friends with the Police in the 80s and 90s. I am glad that the good people are showing their appreciation of the police because without them there would be anarchy in this country. May God Bless all the Officers who place their lives on the job everyday and May God Bless their families who wait at night for their safe return......

Mary @ 2/2/2015 9:04 PM

I lived the life of officiers wife for twenty-seven years. It was through thr GRACE OF GOD, that we made it through those many years. THANK YOU, JESUS FOR GUIDING, AND TAKING SUCH GOOD CARE OF MY HUDBAND.

James @ 2/2/2015 9:41 PM

Working over 23 years in law enforcement this is an incredibly well done and much needed piece. Thank you for doing this and saying what really needs to be said! Thank you to everyone who does care, it really matters to us!

Jamie Bradway @ 2/2/2015 9:56 PM

I am the widow of Officer Rod Bradway, EOW 9/20/2013. He was ambushed and shot, but returned fire, taking the suspect's life- and I am so proud of him for his persistence after being wounded. He ended a hostage situation, saving a young mother and her infant daughter. He also saved the next 2 Officers in, less than 10 seconds away.

I want to say that I hear you. Everything in that video hits home for me. I miss my husband so badly. We were married almost 17 years when he was taken from the kids and I. I still wake at 6am, when I would wake to the sound of Velcro as he took his vest off. I hear you. I am fighting FOR our Officers now... many things but I'm not going to list them. I hear you.

To the Widows... I will simply say, I feel your pain. I am still deeply grieving... I understand the pain.

BRENT PISCITELLO @ 2/3/2015 7:44 AM

I know a falling officifer who was killiled in the line of duty and left three young children God bless his family and friend his name was Patrick Prohm Det mi God keep you all safe. B. PISCITELLO

patricia blagg @ 2/3/2015 8:29 AM

This is a very touching video. My brother was killed in the line of duty, November of 1976, He was Dallas Police Officer Robert W. Wood. I think about him daily. Thank you for this video it is not only touching but it's a reminder that Law Enforcement everywhere should be honored and not ridiculed. God bless all Law Enforcement t everywhere.

Debbie @ 2/3/2015 8:45 AM

To the wonderful wife and all that participated in the video. Between my husband and I we have 53 years in Law Enforcement combined. We have seen many changes some for the better some for the worse. There have been many tears shed publicly and in private. This, this says everything we have said to eachother for years. Thank you

Rhea @ 2/3/2015 9:35 AM

Mary , I too am a mother of an officer (OHP officer). You expressed my feelings as well. From one mother to another - Thank you.

St.Allman's Girl @ 2/3/2015 11:45 AM

God Bless You! As a spouse of an officer, I knew before we even got married he would be a police officer. This isn't just a job to him. It is his career, his life. He loves his job. Seeing the Ferguson situation on a daily basis was hard to watch, as well as the death of officers because of people's lack of intelligence of the ENTIRE matter. The message was powerful. Thank you!

Mary Reinacher @ 2/3/2015 5:19 PM

Dear Officer: We see you. We thank you. We pray for you all!

Eva @ 2/3/2015 7:05 PM

I am a Grandmother of an RCMP officer in Canada. My grandson is one of the sweetest, kindest and loving young men you have ever meet. He choose to dedicate himself to helping others. He has seem so much in his young life and he has hurt so much for those who struggle and those who are hurt by others. I pray for his safety and the Blessings of our Father-in-Heaven. That he will have the strength to carry on and continue his good work. It is very hard. It hurts me to see how society disrespects and does not appreciate all these wonderful young people who put their lives on the line for all of us. Let us all have a new heart and thank these good people for all they do for us to protect us and to care for us. Thank you and God bless you all. We appreciate you so very much. What ever would be do without you.

tommy @ 2/3/2015 8:04 PM

police officers does not get the respect they need.thank you all police officers all over for what you do.and thank you for putting your lifes on the line for all of us.theses men and women are pulled away from there on familys to protect all of us.THANK YOU

GeeGee @ 2/4/2015 2:50 AM

I am a mother of a man in blue, so very proud of him. we worry each day he works. I watch him kiss his family goodnight as he heads off to defend and protect others, praying he will be home for breakfast.
He is our hero, he is a good man.
Phenomenal video tribute, needs to be shown nationally.

nancy @ 2/4/2015 3:52 AM

As the mother of a Law enforcement Officer: I see you and my heart is proud of all of you for all you do. My prayer is for our nation to wake up and treasure you and respect you more. May today be a blessed for all of you and your families
Deputy Register's Mother.

Lauri Weldon @ 2/4/2015 7:44 AM

WE SEE YOU !!! There are not enough words to tell you how much we appreciate you and are very proud of you. May God Bless You and many prayers to keep each one of you safe....💖

Ron Duncan @ 2/4/2015 8:25 AM

Every day in Itaq we worried about car bombs, ied's, snipers, vbied's, pbied's, cooridnated attacks, rockets, mortars, even friendly fire, but at the end of the year we knew we were going home and maybe would not have to go back over. We did it for our country and because it was our job. Police officers go through this every day also, but for many years. Most get to retire eventually, but many never make it. I am proud to include them as brothers with my military brothers as they fight for the same thing. True there are some bad ones, but a few that need to be weeded out is better than no protectors at all. Some people thought what we did in Iraq as in many wars was cruel as do they of police officers, but when those people need help who do they ask for. Police officers like soldiers are always there to take care of business and too many people forget we are human also. God bless all police officers and soldiers who put their lives on the line every day so we can be safe.

Carol @ 2/4/2015 12:06 PM

Thank the law enforcement society for the daily protection they give us all along with thinking of those of us who need their concern and identification when we are lost from our homes. (children or adults with memory loss)

Paul Gotberg @ 2/4/2015 7:28 PM

Duty calls..the responsibility for an officer never goes away. The lawbreakers could find something else to do with their lives but for some reason they continue their 'who cares attitude'. Decision time..I choose the men or women in uniform who choose to protect the lives of people in the community. Thank you protectors of law & life!

Virgil Weber @ 2/4/2015 10:47 PM

I am a retired LEO from the Los Angeles area in California. Honorably served from 1976 to 2006 and now my kids are working at the dept I retired from. A dau is a jailer and son an officer and swat operator. During my career I never faced the social pressures LEO's face today. Communities deserve LEO with integrity, courage, compassion and dedication. In turn the LEO's deserve the support from those whom they serve. Yea, some bad cops exist and I believe they need to be quickly identified and weeded out of the profession before they tarnish the badge. God bless the men and women who accepts the challenge to serve and protect in today's social and political climate. Let the liberal agenda respond to calls for service, DV, rapes, murders and the like. Let them survive one day in the shoes of the LEO's in our country. I am proud of my service and glad my time on the thin blue line is over.

Noel @ 2/4/2015 11:46 PM

Policing is the same all over the world. A proportion of society have no self respect and therefore certainly no respect for law and order. Policing in N, Ireland is no different, checking your car every morning for UVIED's isn't normal but officer get on with it, serving the public who are the first to lambast them. Officers are humans too.

Julia @ 2/5/2015 3:18 AM

Thank for sharing this beautiful message. So thankful for police officers. I always have a prayer in my heart every day for my husband and his fellow police officers. That they may be watched over and return home safely.

Tedford Tidland @ 2/5/2015 8:36 AM

Our prayer: protect each one, strengthen their resolve, provide clear vision of the right path, quick reflexes and pure hearts. Heavenly Father bless them.

Nan @ 2/5/2015 12:09 PM

Absolutely beautiful video! Thank you for taking the time to make this for all of us!! God bless!

Steve @ 2/7/2015 4:57 AM

I'm sat here crying after watching such an inspirational video that brings to life all the thoughts and feelings of loved ones and people who truly care about the thin blue line. With one year til retirement I can honestly say it's been the most fantastic journey of a lifetime and would never swap it despite the ups and downs. Many thanks for all your support from West Yorkshire Police. England.

sarah richards @ 2/7/2015 5:41 AM

one of our best friends a retired police officer now marshall of southern district of texas had a best friend shot while making a traffic stop of course he was killed and left a family that loved him'.no one marched over him.He was white.thanks also to my daughter-in-law michelle for getting up every am at 3:30 to go protect and serve our city.we love and respect all law enforcement no matter what color they are.

Carol @ 2/7/2015 10:19 AM

God Bless all those who serve or have served! You are truly our blue angels and protectors and we need as much help as we can get these day. The officers do not deserve to all be painted bad just because of a few who do not deserve to wear a badge. You all have more support than you know it's just people are too lazy to come right out and take a stand! Stay strong we believe we salute and support you THANK YOU!! ♡

Matt @ 2/7/2015 10:43 PM

I will play this in briefing, thank you for all of the support. I'm sure the room will be silent while it plays.

Iggy @ 2/8/2015 1:25 AM

Awesome msg, I have ex-Army mates (Brothers) in the NZ Police, I am proud to know them. Cops everywhere deserve all the back up.

Vicky @ 2/8/2015 5:08 PM

Lynn E Steeves @ 2/9/2015 5:45 AM

Thank God for each and every Police Officier that works to Protect and Serve our Wonderful Land: Canada! We love and appreciate each of you.
Keep Canada Free!

Jim Crichton @ 2/10/2015 12:23 PM

For me, 30 yrs of Service - You see me, You hear me, You love me. You know my name, not my story. You know what I've done, not what I've been through.

Mary Horvath @ 2/10/2015 6:34 PM

My youngest brother was a Milwaukee Police Officer, he is retired now from the force, but I remember always worrying about him. He worked the nite shift in a bad neighborhood, he eventually had to be removed from the squad cars due to too many head ons, with drunken drivers. Drs. told him he would have to get a different job or wind up being crippled, so they gave him a desk job,safer yes,but not what he wanted. I was thankful for it though, because after all he was my youngest brother,and I didn't want to loose him, I already had lost my oldest brother to an illness. God Bless all of you, especially in these times now.

Search Videos @ 2/14/2015 12:06 PM

We see you and love and respect you. I am a former Deputy, my son is a police officer and also we have many in the family as officers. I also as a Mother worry about my son every day hoping he will be safe and come home to his family. God bless each and everyone of you for protecting us.

Pat svrcek @ 2/26/2015 5:57 AM

I see you too so many injuries and yet you return to your calling as officers. As a nurse manager for many I know your pain and conflict with all that goes on but better an injury than the alternative . Respect and gratitude for all you do when you walk out your door to the horrors you see but only share with few. Thank you all.

PC157 @ 3/4/2015 5:06 PM

I am a serving Police Officer in Yorkshire, England and every night after my shift I sneak in to kiss my babies and tell them their dad has made this place a more safer place to live!
I cry in the kitchen so my wife and children don't see the things I see!
I stand in my garden to relieve my anger at a system that does not work!
But then I am proud that I'm the inspiration from all the kids in my Boxing Gym that no longer want to be criminals but good people.
I love being a Police Officer they say you do not choose this Service the Service chooses you!

michcop @ 3/6/2015 6:27 AM

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

A POLICE OFFICER’S LOT

FACING THE THREAT OF DANGER EACH DAY.
IS ALL PART OF THE JOB SOME PEOPLE MAY SAY,
BUT WHEN ONE OF US FALLS SIMPLY BECAUSE WE ARE THERE,
IT UNITES US IN SORROW, SHOWING WE REALLY DO CARE.
AND THOUGH THESE THINGS MAY CAUSE SADNESS AND HURT,
FROM OUR PRINCIPAL ROLE WE MUST NEVER DIVERT

ALWAYS AVAILABLE – WILLING TO ANSWER ANY CALL
WHAT WE WOULD DO FOR ONE, WE SHOULD DO FOR ALL.
DEALING WITH JUSTICE IN A MANNER EVEN-HANDED AND FAIR,
REMEMBERING ALWAYS THAT WE HAVE A DUTY OF CARE,
AND BY TREATING EACH PERSON AS ONE WOULD DO A ROYAL
WE BUILD FAITH IN EACH OTHER TO BE STEADFAST AND LOYAL,

WITH THIS FAITH IN EACH OTHER, AND BEING TRUTHFUL AND JUST,
WE CAN POLICE WITH CONSENT, BACKED BY MUTUAL TRUST.
THEN AS THESE BATTLES ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE FOUGHT
THE LEAST WE SHOULD EXPECT IS THE PUBLIC’S SUPPORT,
BECAUSE EACH POLICE FORCE REFLECTS THE SOCIETY IT SERVES,
AND THIS GIVES TO SOCIETY THE POLICE SERVICE IT DESERVES.

Thank you so very, very much. I have never seen any thing like this.
Retired Police Lt, Det, under cover narcotics officer plus Community Relations officer. Thank you for seeing inside an officer and exposing that.
