Peacemaker

In the Bible, in the Gospel According to St. Matthew, chapter 5, verse nine it says: "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."  In the United States police are often called Peace Officers.

This comes from that part of the Bible.  The concept is that the police will come and restore order and peace to a broken and disrupted situation.  Are you doing police work with the intent of being a peacemaker?

The job of law enforcement sometimes requires the use of force to complete our duties, sometimes even lethal force.  Still our goal is to to restore peace.  Our job is to return the circumstances to normal and allow the law abiding, the meek to live in peace.  Be a peacemaker, act as the children of God; that's what the SGT Says.
