What, Me Worry?

If you do that you might get sued. If you don’t do this you might get sued. Don’t worry about getting sued. Worry about doing the job well. Worry about doing the right thing. Worry about being safe and keeping your partners and the public safe. Worry about treating your prisoners properly.

Worry about how things look to the general public when you are working. Worry about keeping your supervisor happy. Worry about keeping your dispatcher informed. Worry about keeping an eye on the new rookie cop out on patrol on his own for the first year.

Worry about keeping your skills up. Worry about staying sharp on the long shifts. Worry about the lost children. Worry about driving safely. Worry about wearing your body armor and your seat belt. Do a good job and act in a reasonable manner and you won’t have anything to worry about; that’s what the SGT Says.

And if all THAT worrying doesn;t punch a hole in your stomach after 25 years, and chase you to Walgreens for some TUMS...you ain't trying hard enough.

Good call.
Roll safe out there.

Prayer and the love of a good woman helps a lot.
