"Just Another Man"
He looks in the mirror every morning and night,
Does he see what I see, it would be nice if he might.
He sees a rude man as he stands there,
I see someone who needs someone to care.
He sees a mean man, because he has to be tough,
I see someone who deals with more than enough.
He sees how he tries not to cry and feels he has no heart,
I see someone who has to keep his feelings and work apart.
He sees a murderer because he shot someone last night,
I see someone who saved someone else from a fight.
He sees a failure because he did not arrive in time
I see someone who did his best and needs peace of mind.
He sees just another man as he enters the day,
I see a special man who does his best in every way.
For all the years, he has put on the uniform of blue,
He has never realized how much he protects me and you.
But, as he starts the day again, I just wish he could see,
What he really is and how much he means to you and me.

Good evening ,Paul.Many Police,State Police and /or Sheriffs Dept.do rrequire ,at least an Associates degree.There are still quite a few who don't though.If you want to become an officer or Deputy in a smaller jurisdiction your process would be a lot shorter and simpler,HOWEVER,your pay scale at the smaller depts. and benefits at a smaller Dept. are going to be a LOT smaller,also.I went from a city of half a million where the officers are now earning $50,000 per year to a city of 1800 people where I was earning $6 dollars per hour.Whereever you apply it will require MUCH testing of all varities and an academy ,usually lasting sixteen weeks.
