    Always a Cop:

    Once the badge goes on, it never comes off, whether they can see it, or not. It fuses to the soul through adversity, fear and adrenaline and no one who has ever worn it with pride, integrity and guts, can ever sleep through the 'call of the wild' that wafts through bedroom windows in the deep of the night.

    When Cops Retire

    When a good cop leaves the 'job' and retires to a better life, many are jealous, some are pleased and yet others, who may have already retired, wonder. We wonder if he knows what he is leaving behind, because we already know. We know, for example, that after a lifetime of camaraderie that few experience, it will remain as a longing for those past times. We know in the law enforcement life there is a fellowship which lasts long after the uniforms are hung up in the back of the closet. We know even if he throws them away, they will be on him with every step and breath that remains in his life. We also know how the very bearing of the man speaks of what he was and in his heart still is.

    These are the burdens of the job. You will still look at people suspiciously, still see what others do not see or choose to ignore and always will look at the rest of the law enforcement world with a respect for what they do; only grown in a lifetime of knowing. Never think for one moment you are escaping from that life. You are only escaping the 'job' and merely being allowed to leave 'active' duty. So what I wish for you is that whenever you ease into retirement, in your heart you never forget for one moment that 'Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called children of God,' and you are still a member of the greatest fraternity the world has ever known.

    Civilian Friends vs. Police Friends

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Get upset if you're too busy to talk to them for a week.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Are glad to see you after years, and will happily carry on the same conversation you were having the last time you met.

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Have cried with you.

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Borrow your stuff for a few days then give it back.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Keep your stuff so long they forget it's yours.

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will leave you behind if that's what the crowd is doing.
    POLICE FRIEND S: Will kick the crowds' ass that left you behind.

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Are for a while.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Are for life.

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have shared a few experiences. ..
    POLICE FRIENDS: Have shared a lifetime of experiences no citizen could ever dream of...

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they think you've had enough.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over the place and say, 'You better drink the rest of that before you spill it!!' Then carry you home safely and put you to bed...

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will talk crap to the person who talks crap about you.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Will knock them the hell out for using your name in vain.

    CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will ignore this.
    POLICE FRIENDS: Will forward this.

    There are those that think they understand. And then,. . . . there are cops.

    The Final Inspection

    The warrior stood and faced God,
    Which will always come to pass,
    He hoped his shoes were shining,
    Just as brightly as his brass.

    “Step forward now, old warrior,
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To my church have you been true?”

    The warrior squared his shoulders and
    Said, “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t,
    ‘Cause those of us who carry guns
    Can’t always be saint.

    “I’ve had to work most Sundays,
    And at times my talk was tough,
    And sometimes I’ve been violent,
    ‘Cause the world is awfully rough.

    “But, I never took a penny
    That wasn’t mine to keep.
    Though I worked a lot of overtime
    When the bills got just too steep,

    “And I never passed a cry for help,
    Though at times I shook with fear,
    And sometimes, God forgive me,
    I’ve wept unmanly tears.

    “I know I don’t deserve a place
    Among the people here,
    They never wanted me around
    Except to calm their fears.

    “If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
    It needn’t be so grand. In life
    I didn’t expect nor need too much,
    So if you don’t, I’ll understand.”

    There was a silence all around the throne,
    Where the saints had often trod,
    As the warrior stood quietly.
    For the judgment of his God.

    “Step forward now, my warrior,
    You’ve born your burdens well,
    Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
    You’ve done your time in Hell.”
