Why God Created the Police Officer

I am a strong believer that faith plays a huge role into our profession as LEO’s. Many of us wear the St. Michael pendant around our necks, on our vests or, for some, permanently tattooed on our bodies. I know many of us are believers; it helps us explain the things we see, the things we wished we would have never seen.

That is why God created the police officer.

Who else would he choose to see the world’s most disturbing scenes and deal with the world’s worst people? God created the police officer in the image of his only son. God is in everything we do, everything we see, every word we hear. God needed soldiers to walk the earth, to protect the innocent and bring justice to those who have committed the worst of sins.

That is why God created the police officer.

Every single one of you that puts the vest and badge on every day has been hand picked by God to be a warrior. There is a reason you are a police officer. You were born with a sense of honor, service and sacrifice. You were born able to see things that many ordinary people cannot see. You were born able to see good, evil and everything in between. You were born able to read between the lines, understand subtle words, and have compassion for the compassionless. You were born to fill the deficit between good and evil. You were born with blue blood and a lion’s heart.

That is why God created the police officer.
