Just wanted to say thanks for the risks you take, the sacrifices you make, and the bull you put up with to keep bad guys off the streets, and the efforts you make to keep people like me safe. I know the system has problems and a lot of the time you feel like you're just chasing your tail, but we appreciate what you do. If I could have anything, it would be to have the courage to fill your shoes.
I'll drink to that!

And how frustrating it must be to be picking up pieces after the fact and doing paperwork when you must have an incredibly strong desire to do a Rainbow Six number. I've seen '...only minutes away' a lot: please understand that this is not a criticism of YOU - it's a criticism of the reactive system you work in. We are keenly aware that you would give your teeth to be standing in the shadows behind Grandma when the mugger shows up!
Thanks... and may the Lord bless you and your family, protect you, and give you good shooting when the time comes.

Absolutely thank you. I have a friend who's a LEO in Florida and have been on a citizen ride with him. You guys have a "thankless" job, but thank you for all you do.

I can't think of another job, that the "worker" is less appreciated and underpaid for what they do.
I have a few friends in LE and they know how much I value them and what they do. We've talked about the public perception of the job, and they really appreciate that some of us do value them as officers of the law, and people as well.
Keep up the good work!

Yes, many thanks to the good guys out there.

+1....Echo...Ditto...All that has been said.....Saying "THANKS" is almost tooo little when one puts their life on the line when duty calls. With that being said...Thank you to all the good/honest LEO's for all that you do and try to do to make our community and our society a safer place for families and law abiding citizens..
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Don't forget our fire fighters as well. I am not one or do I know of any. But thanks to them as well

The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
