8 years, started working in a small rural county S.O. of 19,000 total population, moved up to a large city PD in the Atlanta Metro area, total city/county population 119,000, I now work for my home county S.O. which has a population combined city and county of around 45,000.
My order of preservations goes like this,
My life/well being
My partner’s life/well being
My partner’s paycheck
Your (the public) @$$
Sorry it goes that way but again I don’t get paid to fight, my state certification says peace officer not ball buster.
Now, if only more LEO's would see it that way. Its our duty to protect ourselves, and you guys just keep the peace. Thanks for giving me some hope!
