TRAIN HARD, YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT
Some say it is the worst time to be a police officer. This comes from the media, public and even some officers. Officers being physically targeted and the coverage of the media, it would seem at face value to be a poor time to be in law enforcement. I disagree with this theory whole heartily, even push that this is the best time to shine as a police officer. The rhetoric that “blue lives don’t matter” (thank you University of California-Irvine) and activist proclaiming that officers are racists and undertrained is the perfect stage to prove the naysayers wrong.
This is the time to do your job and do it with integrity. Be the professional that you are and take to your beat with pride knowing that you are doing it the right way. Join together with your brothers and sisters and show the world the positive impact that can result from a career in law enforcement. The media concentrates on the few for headlines, but as the largest family in the world let your voice be heard through your actions. Our occupation is not easy, but that is what makes us who we are, we live for the obstacles thrown our way.
Do not forget what you had to go through to get where you are. Train hard, embrace your job and perfect your craft.
