“Police officers take risks and secure the safety of fellow citizens, and they endure such risks and tolerate such inconveniences on behalf of strangers. Consequently, police work is one the more noble and selfless occupations in society. Making a difference in the quality of life is an opportunity that policing provides-and few other professions can offer.”
– International Association of Chiefs of Police
