How applicable is this to today’s police officer?
Which is why we have to remember what Marcus said. We cannot forget that at the core of what we do and why we are here is people. Our job is to make their lives better. Our job is to be of use. Our job is to do this even if we are met with ingratitude, obstacles or attacks. Our job is to do good and be patient even if our bosses give us contrary orders, even if the system has become corrupt or strayed from its charter.
Our job is to do people good. Whatever our industry, whatever our payscale, whatever the public perception. So do it well.
