Who knew they had a special day too…well it is today. Be nice and thank one, anyone you see.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing a lot of good cops over the years, too many to enumerate, certainly more good than weiners. I hate to admit it, but with most of the tickets I got I deserved, certainly the 2 I didn’t deserve I fought and won.
Hat tip to my friend Tom Le Veque a sergeant at Arcadia PD for sharing the info on the day. Truthfully he exemplifies what a good cop is and what they do for the community. Tom aside from all his other duties runs APD’s social media, twitter, facebook and nixle that engages and informs the community on what is going on in the community.
Other good cops I’ve known over the years include Michael Solarez whom I knew through his work with MPD. Pasadena PD’s Christopher Kirby is another. LAPD’s Ed Brentlinger from the North Hollywood division from when I was in Valley Village is another great one I had the pleasure of knowing and working with. All these men were known by the community they served and enjoyed what they did.
So…don’t screw up today, instead hand out a starbucks card to your local officer on the beat to thank them for their largely thankless job.
