Officer 2186
You have chosen this road
To serve and protect
Knowing this path
Will take its affect
You will risk you life
To save another
The death of a child
You will break to a mother
You will witness acts
That will break your heart
A few words of wisdom
As an Officer you start
Build your integrity
Through honesty and respect
Give freely of yourself
Nothing in return you expect
Do not punish or seek revenge
For everything comes around
It is smarter to let the suspects go
For the truth will eventually be found
Do not abuse your power
Or the authority entrusted to you
Base your decisions on evidence & facts
And only what you know to be true
Wear your badge of honour
With humility and pride
Knowing there is an angel
Always by your side
Trust your instincts
Follow your heart
Rely on your training
And the rest will do its part
Your goal each shift
Going home to the ones you love
Your are serving one Master
Our Lord, God above
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God
Matthew 5:9
~Carol Holden
