To all our police officers , you are valued and respected and thank you for keeping us safe in an ever challenging environment. Condolences to the families that have lost love ones over the years.




Posted By: Rob McDermott

I pay tribute to, and have the utmost respect for, the brave men and women who work to keep us safe. They do so 24 hours a day and every single day of the year. It is easy to criticise in hindsight, it is easy to highlight mistakes, it isn't so easy to take the time to say thank you. May I take this moment to say thank you to all the serving and retired police officers and their families for everything they do and sacrifice for us. God Bless You All.

"In a year when a long line of politicians and public figures have vilified the police, and screaming hordes have called for them to be defunded, today more than ever we should all think about how we are kept safe by the boys in blue. Every day they run headlong into unknown danger and tragically far too many are killed. They keep us all safe regardless of our colour, religion, gender, or political stance Those campaigning against the police, uploading videos to you tube should hang their heads in shame for creating an anti police environment.

"This was not written by me, but by a former colleague. It's very eloquent and accurate. I hope you read it... ""There will be no golden casket, no kneeling footballers, no virtue signalling by F1 drivers, no dance in the name of art on BGT, no riots and no looting but just a dignified silence from a blue wall, behind which stands a shattered family, devastated colleagues and a shocked Police family. They stand together, upset, angry and in pain. Despite all this, those serving will put their uniforms back on tomorrow and the day after and continue to protect the public, they will run towards danger, and stand face to face with pure evil to protect strangers, they deal with and see things that no person should really see, and they ask nothing more than for your support and to go home to their families. So donโ€™t tell me that anyoneโ€™s life matters more than that of a Police officer."" The best job in the world by far Ex GMP Officer"

Police are human too they have a right to return home safe and unharmed at the end of shift just like the rest of us. They do there jobs with such dedication, selflessness and courage to protect and serve there community and country. They are uncles, aunties, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, mums, dads and friends they have a life when they take their uniform off, a uniform they wear when they are protecting us. No officer should have to pay the ultimate price with there life. Words can never describe the anger and sorrow that the country feel at the moment, My heart and thoughts goes out to the family, friends and the whole of the Police community on such a sad day.

Remembering all fallen officers who have given their lives in the service of others. Perhaps society will one day realise that in order for those who protect us, they themselves need protecting, with very severe punishments for those who abuse, and take the lives of the officers in blue. God help and protect you all, and may the fallen rest in peace.

When people complain about the more mundane aspects of a police officers role, fines, shoplifting etc they should bear in mind that it is also these officers that are the first on the scene of some shocking scenarios which most of us would run from. They cannot run, they have to face it, to deal with it, to protect US from it, with the dedication of the ever thinning blue line, to the point of some giving their lives. I salute all officers that have lost their lives in the carrying out of their duties and give my heartfelt condolences to all who knew and loved them. Thank you.

"The Thin Blue Line Among us, sent down from heaven, Are those that walk a Thin Blue Line, that's a given. Like Guardian Angels to watch over me and you, Are those that wear the uniform of blue. We see them only as traffic stops, We do not call them friends, just cops. We pray we never have a chance meeting, We never pass along a greeting. But they are so much more than this, They simply do not see the world as bliss. But they look into the corners of our deepest fears, They walk the beat, they wipe a tear. They bring a message to our home, When all is not well, and you are alone. They come to us, no matter the need, Handle the problem, complete the deed. They lay their personal feelings aside, They do their job, they have great pride. And if one should fall, among life's things. The badge they wear, turns into wings"
