Here is a feel-good story of how police officers sacrifice daily for the public whether they (the public) deserve it or not.
I was at a recent public safety award ceremony and was very honored to be in the presence of many who serve the general public – often a thankless job I might add. These men and women sacrifice themselves for the general community regardless of race, religion, or beliefs. Their sworn duty is to protect the citizens and uphold the law.
There needs to be more stories about these positive activities rather than dwelling on the negativity that the social media exploits but I will not go there in this post – this negativity does not deserve my attention.

So I attended this meeting to hear, for myself, the facts and provide support for a man whom I know personally. His character and integrity was above reproach yet somehow, the city staff disagreed. Continue reading “Light Always Exposes The Truth”
Dropped by a local city the other day and was pleasantly surprised to meet one of the new officers – my son!!!
He has finally passed his field training and is now a new addition to a squad of fine public safety officers. Unlike what the news portrays police officers to be, there are many, many public servants in the “blue” that actually do GREAT work for their communities and the people they serve!
Unfortunately, it is the few that command the most attention from the news media.
Why? I believe it is because Continue reading “5-0 Is In The House!!!”
