  • Police Officers find it hard to trust!

    In my experience as a Veteran Police Officer; I have seen Officers/Deputy’s hurt, shot, lied on, misunderstood, sued and depicted as the bad guy. The most dangerous part of this JOB is NOT the Suspects, but the way I handle balancing the weight of being expected to be Superman, but not having the opportunity just to be Clark Kent.

    Your Thoughts?

    I think suspects and the general public are becoming more dangerous than when I started policing in the 1970's.

    The profession has evolved considerably since I started..........................much more dangerous both on the streets and in the office
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      Haven't been a police officer that long, but I can already see this.

        In 1978, when I started it was one thing. Now stay strong and I am hoping the tide will change.

        For now, continue being the sheepdog.

            Had a weird day,Had 2 people walk up and thank me for what i do today.For no reason, then pulled up to the drive thru at lunch and the guy ahead of me had paid for my lunch.

            Atleast a few people left on our side.

            And yes i paid for the ladys lunch who pulled up after me.I asked the women at the window how long this had been going in,She said it hadnt till the guy ahead of me gave her a 10.00 and said " i got his ".

              Odd part is, for me, I have worked alongside guys and girls who would be arrested, booked and imprisoned for (1) Burglary, (2) Robbery, (3) GTA, (4) Insurance and work comp fraud, (5) Domestic violence, (6) Kidnap & Rape, (7) Child porn, (8) Sex with underage boy & girls, and, of course, (9) MURDER (a girl, too, go ahead and Google Stephanie Lazarus).

              I have worked alongside the very guys and girls who give a reason why we have so many critics and people who hate and/or mistrust cops overall. I don't like it, but understand a little bit why they feel the way they do.

              I sometimes keep my fellow cops at a distance, for good reason.

              Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

              Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

                I have as well. When I heard that someone accused a NYC cop of sticking a plunger up his ***, I immediately jumped to the cops' defense. Sadly, not so anymore.

                  There are still some really good people left. The bad part is that they are outweighed heavily by the bad ones.
