Police Officer’s Job Is Not A Job Its A Calling-Lets Thank Them For All The Freedoms We Enjoy.



It is the police officer – not the reporter, who protects freedom of the press.

It is the police officer – not the poet, who guards our freedom of speech.

It is the armed police officer, training in the use of deadly force, ready to defend the innocent against aggression and the weak against the violent, standing ready to serve and protect even with his life if necessary.

It is the police officer who preserves your rights to keep and bare arms. It is the police officer – not the politician, who insures freedom of assembly.

It is the police officer – not the campus organizer, who safeguards the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the police officer – not the defense attorney, who reads Miranda warnings and informs defendants of inalienable rights.

It is the police officer who is willing to disclose all evidence, even evidence which may weaken a case, in order to protect the innocent and insure that justice shall prevail.

It is the police officer – not the preacher, who safeguards our liberties, including freedom of religion.

It is the police officer – not the judges, who seeks out witnesses, thus preserving rights of the accused.

It is the police officer, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

It is the police officer, who vigilantly serves the public, protecting society from evil, and preserving all our freedoms.

About samina iqbal

I am a free lance writer who loves to write on social issues in particular. I am a house wife and my husband Dr. Shams Iqbal offers all the support and encouragement so that I can pursue my passion for authorship and other cause which is dear to me. My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity. I am so inspired and fascinated to support this law enforcement group. On the other hand I like music, movies specially classics, I am a fashion geek, English and American literature are my passions.

  1. very true. not all cops are meant to be cops, but those who are meant to do a duty like that are some of the best amongst us!

    With all the negative news down here its refreshing to read some positive law enforcement writing. While 99% of officers are excellent there will always be the 1 % who don’t deserve to wear the badge… 🙂

    • Hi Ed. thanks for a lovely comment. I agree with you 100%. We need to appreciate and honor the majority of the police force that we depend upon for everything. This peaceful world around us would be a total chaos without our protectors protecting and defending us. Take care and God bless my friend.


  4. Thanks Sam for this post! I am totally sick of police bashing. I wonder how our cities would fare
    if the police all went on strike for a week or two. I think it would be a different scenario.

    • Hi Marsha, thanks for a lovely comment. I agree with you 100%. we never stop to think what would become of our peaceful world if our protectors went on strike even for a day or two. The chaos and mayhem would drive us crazy. We need to think we are so blessed to be living in peace and harmony and all credit goes to our protectors. Thanks for the visit my friend. Take care and God bless.

    Every profession has bad apples that give the entire group a black eye, thus the majority deserve the praise you’ve given them here.

    Thank you Samina. I have been thinking about you, this special blog you dedicate to law enforcement people…especially since there has been so much violence and wrongly pointed ill will toward our American peacekeepers…I pray daily for them all…those that go out to do such a seemingly thankless job while thugs become sainted and while targets are made of the police. I wonder what this world is coming to, with the unjust vilification of our public peace officers. Sure, SOMETIMES, there are a couple that are caught up in corruption and undue violence against the common folk, but VERY RARELY. Every occupation field has bad apples. I hope that common sense and reason will once again prevail so that all communities will be safe and appreciate all the good that police do. The alternative to stand down will do far more harm to us all in order to appease a few. Our leaders need to back these fine law enforcement forces, clearly stating their support, in stead of talking as though they believe them to be the enemy.


  13. You guys are doing a great job!
