A thought on the nobility of policing

We are rightly critical of journalists and members of the public who misrepresent the work that we do as police officers.

Do we not therefore owe it to ourselves to be equally critical of fellow police officers who, by their actions, misrepresent the work we do?

Internal integrity is just as important as controlling misinformation.

  1. Paul, I don’t even know if you still check this blog, but I had to tell you how much this quote spoke to me. I have been trying to talk to my peers about this very thing, insisting that they uphold the integrity of our honorable profession as a way to counterbalance the negativity today. Thanks for your honesty. Be safe.
