7 Reasons Why We Love Being A Police Officer

We all know that being a police officer is not an easy job. They are viewed with high ethical standards and the community relies on them. Despite that, there are times people make excuses when they are caught and police officers have to deal with the situation in a calm and orderly manner.

Even though times are sometimes difficult, here are 7 reasons why we love being a police officer.

1) Helping Others

I have a lot of people who thanked me years later. It is indeed the most rewarding experience when people remember you for what you’ve done. Being able to help is what’s a police officer is all about, even if it means the little things such as helping to repair a stranded car, it would make someone’s day.

 

2) Brotherhood

Some of the cops that I have worked with are outstanding, while some really just love to tell people they’re cops. There are police officers that are really compassionate, brave and courageous in the town. These are the cops that I look forward to when I need a response to back me up, for I know they will do everything to help and keep everyone safe.

 

3) Appreciation

Overtime, the more I work, the more I appreciate my own family life more. It’s tough for police officers to face danger or life-threatening situation weekly, if not daily. With this, whenever I’m about to leave knowing that it might be my last day, the more I truly appreciate the ones I love and have in my life.

 

4) The Experience

Each call that we receive is a brand new experience. There may be some types of calls with the same location, but it is never repetitive. It’s always something new, a different challenge and opportunity to encounter.

 

5) To Protect

It’s having the action to stop a crime, or arrest someone who needs justice by victimizing an innocent person. To place those handcuffs on such a person is a gratifying experience.

 

6) Being A Protective Parent

I am always informed, to make sure everyone is safe no matter what. Even if it means the kids have been invited over for a sleepover, or going with their friend to a late night movie showing, or even just taking the bus for the first time by themselves.

 

7) Consistent Uniform

With this, I do not have to decide what to wear every single day. Should I wear a suit, or a button-up shirt with slacks or did I forget it was jeans day.


There are other things that have made me appreciate being a police officer, such as the ability to drive fast with a siren playing in the background, and even to get paid to give justice for others. I, as well, enjoy the security level for my friends and family.

I am a retired retired state trooper (Sgt. Injured in the line) I miss everything you have mentioned. I wish the lady that broadsided me during a pursuit had paid attention to the light instead of running it. I slid 400 feet on my drivers side. I was not able to pass the physical abilities test and was given the choice to work a desk or take disability retirement. I retired in 2001. I still miss being a LEO.

I did 2 years on the streets of a large city in the UK back in the 60’s when policing was fun and not political! I joined the Army and served 15 years in the Corps of Royal Military Police as a Redcap. That’s why I will always back the Blue! My Thin Blue Line licence plate holder is already on my car!

I love and support all legit honest Police Officers that live by the oath in which they all took swearing in upon being appointed out of the Academy. Unfortunately we have bad apples among the force in avery state and city but there are way more good Cops that put their lives on the line daily when on duty in some cases even off duty. I respect all Police Officers , i support all Police Officers and if i ever came across police officers in need , i would dive in Immediately to help. I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THE POLICE OFFICERS GETTING THIS BAD REP , AND THE SHIT HEAD POLITICIANS THAT PUMP UP THE IDIOT CITIZENS WHOM I WOULD BET MY BANK ACCOUNT ON ARE ALL PAST CRIMINALS THAT PROTEST START FIRES BREAK INTO STORE CAUSING MORE CRIMINAL ACTS TO MAKE THEIR B.S. POINT THAT COPS ARE BAD. BULLSHIT. I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT POLICE ACROSS THE BOARD AS LONG AS I LIVE . MIND YOU I HAVE BEEN LOCKED UP BEFORE AS WELL ONLY DUE TO MY POOR JUDGEMENT AND ACTS , NOT THE POLICE OFFICERS THAT ARRESTED ME , I GOT MYSELF LOCK UP FOR BREAKING THE LAW. I OWN MY SHIT AS SHOULD ALL CRIMINALS AND NOT BLAME THE COPS FOR DOING THEIR JOB. GOD BLESS ALL GOOD HONEST POLICE OFFICERS MEN AND WOMEN AND THANK YOU. PLEASE BE SAFE , GOD BLESS AND THANK YOU 🙏 ❤

My father was a wonderful and courageous police officer. He was the kind of man that if on patrol would give a young family a warning on Sunday to slow down and stay safe. He taught me many good values and I miss him dearly. I pray for all police now daily cause the world has changed so much and the respect for an officer is greatly under rated. I heard stories about my Dad always with the view of his fairness and respect for others. Take care all of you and stay safe, bless all of you,

I was a reserve officer in a mid size city in Texas. This was the most rewarding time of my life. I took great pleasure in knowing I was trying to do my part to keep my Family and community safe, while enjoying working with the public and the exceptional bunch of people I could have been associated with. Our Department was truly a Family of good hearted officers, commanders, dispatchers, and emergency responders. I am blessed to still have the long lasting friendships and Brotherhood of these true hero’s in my later years. God Bless all the First Responders and may St. Michael the Guardian Angel watch over you and keep you safe.

My recently deceased son was a Sheriff’s Sgt.K9 officer for nearly 25 years. He was a dedicated officer and loved and respected by all in our community. His fellow officers and all LEO’S are very dear to me. Please all stay safe. You are all loved and appreciated for the work you do. Thank you.

You all are a group like none other. One that deserves respect in everything that you do. It could be “playing” marriage counselor or running after some idiot dealing drugs. I come from a family of LEOs and I can’t be more proud of them or more scared for them each day. God has given ya’ll the special talents it takes to do your job. Saying thank you just isn’t enough. God bless and protect each and everyone of you. I pray you all get to go home to your family every night!

I was a Parking Enforcement Officer in a special unit with my local sheriff’s office and although we were not paid, just like the reserve units, I felt all 7 of these with the unit. The respect I received from people, the brotherhood in our own unit as well as the great appreciation we got from the deputies, and of course driving around in marked cruisers and using the sirens when called to assist an accident! It was fun and very rewarding. (I still have my own uniform and equipment) I was there just shy of 5 yrs and even though I came across some dangerous situations I didn’t have any fear. I just thought about doing my best and having fun while experiencing what it’s like to be a cop, even though I wasn’t one.
I wish I could still be a part if that awesome life.
Stay safe all!!
