10 years has flown by. The landscape of law enforcement has changed significantly in my time serving as a Deputy Sheriff. One thing that hasn't changed is that 9/10 cops will continue to treat people with dignity and respect regardless of whether or not those people do or do not support police. No profession is exempt from their bad apples but most of us will do our best to be a positive role models for the public.
As long as I wear a badge and even after, I will always maintain that attitude.
