What's the Good Word?

Cities all over the nation are having problems with their police departments.  In some cases an officer has done something illegal or immoral and the citizens have turned against them.  In most cases the media have seized on an incident and have misinformed the public.

As a result the public think the police have done something wrong when the police followed the law, followed procedure, and did what they are supposed to do.  Sometimes police work is not pretty.  Sometimes you do everything right and something bad will happen.

When these things happen, we need to reach out to the public.  That starts with our families, with our friends and let them know the truth.  Get our our side of the story.  In the vast majority of the time, police do the right thing, but the word needs to get out.  Make it your job to spread the word about the good deeds done by your partners, every day; that's what the SGT Says.
