Thanks to the police

A Letter to the Editor about the police and what they do for us.

I would like to take this opportunity to speak up for the fine police officers we have here and all over Canada.

For the past while the majority of what we see and read in the news regarding our police is very negative. I suppose good news isn’t very popular.

I for one am proud of the many fine men and women who serve as law enforcement officers.

It seems like a thankless job that requires a tremendous amount of personal strength to be able to deal with the sometimes horrific side of society, both self inflicted and accidental.

Most of us are fortunate enough to never experience those circumstances let alone deal with them constantly.

I cannot imagine the difficulty in dealing with these stressful situations and then living with much of the public negativity regarding their profession.

While they are not perfect they strive for perfection and let us not forget that they are dads, moms, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters and friends. Let us show them the respect they deserve and give them the benefit of our doubt in times of trouble.
