  • Are you still proud to be a Cop?

    Even after all my years as a Cop, I am still proud to be a Cop. I have had a few different roles in Law Enforcement, but no matter what I'm doing, I'm still honored to put on my gun, badge, and handcuffs. Does anyone feel the same way anymore? Or are you feeling that it's just a job? It seems like comraderie is a thing of the past in my agency, and many others that I've seen.

    detbyrd the answer is simple, yes I am. The commraderie is not what it used to be, as is alot of things, but I'm extremely proud. Well over half my life I've been wear ing this uniform, in a few months I'll start my 30th year here, and I'm as proud today as I was on the Sunday night shift that was my first day.

      Very, very proud to serve my country and protect the public. For me, LE doesn't ever feel like work, which is the key to happiness in a career.

      My office has good camaraderie (sp??), we don't socialize a lot outside of work but there is very little personality conflict in my office and especially my group.

        Wouldn't change a thing. Everytime I throw on the uniform I am excited to go to work and see what the day holds. For me it is even more fun being a veteran vs a rookie. I don't have to worry about having the knowledge to handle a call.

          I'm not as excited as I once was, and definitely far more cynical, but still proud. The day I'm not proud of being a cop, I'll quit or retire.

But you can do that from behind a desk. In the end, you carry a gun and shield out into the field for the sole purpose of confronting the bad guys. The enemy. There is no other reason to be on the front lines." ~Nelson Demille

            I'm as proud today to be a police officer as I was the day that I graduated from the police academy.

              I still love my job, it's been a blast for the most part (lost a few friends along the way, not fun).
              Commraderie here in my area is great. People retire or transfer out and noobies come in or transfers show up, new friends, new episodes, each day different.

              I suppose that's why it's so hard for me to pull the plug now ... probably why I didn't two years ago truth be known. Gonna do it though, don't want to wait too late.

                    When I retire, my "fun" job is to be a .............cop.

                        Absolutely. The departmental politics gets on your nerves now and again, but the bosses come and go, and the troops remain, doing what needs to be done with or without their help.

                          Like metioned earlier, I can't believe I get paid somedays for this job. Many times I will find myself thinking of how proud I am of what accomplishments I have achieved, how many lives I have touched and the differences I have hopefully made for people. There is not a day that goes which I am not grateful, thankful and proud to be able to do what I do. I love this job!!!!!!

                            Very, very proud! I would not trade the job for any other line of work, and I can honestly say that there is nothing else I would rather do.

                              Only two other guys are happier in their line of work...

                              Ron Jeremy and Richard "Mac" Machowicz.
