Bill Cervone summed up the guilt most of us bear–we never think of the police unless we need them, or they are following us down the road with blue lights flashing.
He also said the usual thanks we bestow on these men and women is when those blue lights go around us to pursue someone else.
In the precarious time we live in, we must never forget that these men and women put their lives on the line every day–all in the name of serving and protecting us.
Law enforcement officers–from the smallest police departments to the major agencies–are the custodians of civility and peace in the free world.
They work long hours for little money in always-risky situations.
The annual awards banquet shouldn’t be the only time we recognize their efforts.
We tip our hats to these public servants and thank them for their efforts and we urge you to do the same.
