Someone mentioned the other day that we're fortunate to have good police protection in our communities.
It's true. We have some very good police.
Still, I sometimes think they're underappreciated.
Journalists see the great job they do on a frequent basis.
We see police at work at crash scenes, drug raids, arraignments and arrests. We see them when we pick up daily police logs. We interact with them quite a bit.
If you spend time with an on-duty cop, you'll gain renewed respect instantly. Police have one of the toughest jobs around.
