The news can be misleading
If you get information about policing only from watching the news, the impression you are left with is that all police-civilian interactions are going badly. That’s not the case. —Sue Rahr, former sheriff, now executive director of the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission. These are the craziest things 911 dispatchers have heard on the job.
We appreciate being appreciated
Officers tell me people are stopping them daily, thanking them, buying them lunch or a cup of coffee. Reasonable people know that police are under extreme scrutiny right now. They’re coming up and thanking us for the job we do. —Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis
