~Middle school~Pondering on Courage and the Call to Serve.

“ Fear is a reaction, courage is a decision. – Winston Churchill ”

“ Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear — not absence of fear. – Mark Twain”

The police are the body of officers representing the civil authority of government. Police typically are responsible for maintaining public order and safety, enforcing the law, and preventing, detecting, and investigating criminal activities.

They have the fundamental duty to serve the community, safeguard lives and property, protect the weak, maintain peace, etc. There are only a few careers that offer more opportunities for self-fulfillment than service as a law enforcement officer. Law enforcement is service at its core. Those who are looking for a career filled with thrills or the type of daily edge-of-your-seat excitement like what we see on television or with watching detective animations will find policing interesting  and a bit boring because although the danger is real and each officer will be expertly trained to respond to any situation, the real job or heart of the job is to having daily interactions with the citizens.

Being  a police officer is a job that will bring out the best in you and make you more than you are as of now. It is a job which will ask a lot from you and take on serious responsibilities, but the reward is having a job that really counts. The rewards are unrivaled. It provides a sense of fulfillment and purpose.


” 恐怖は反応であり、勇気は決断である。- Winston Churchill

” 勇気とは恐怖への抵抗であり、恐怖を克服することである–恐怖がないわけではない。- Mark Twain
