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 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!!
