The question I would like to ask in my blog today is Why? Why would anyone want to be a police officer today? While most people I know are extremely supportive of the work the men and women who serve us as law enforcement officers do each day to protect us, it seems most of the national media coverage they are getting of late has been extremely negative to say the least. Like every other profession there are bad apples among the thousands of law officers around the country but increasingly they seem to get all of the national news coverage. Calls to defund police or replace them with social workers are a direct slap in the face of officers who find everything they do under extreme scrutiny. There are bad people out there and we need police officers to protect us from them. I don’t know why anyone would consider a career in law enforcement today but I am glad that some people still do. That’s the way I see it.
