When you walk out the door with a uniform and badge on, you never think it's the last time you'll put on the uniform, kiss your mate goodbye, provide help to the helpless or be a part of what keeps your community safe.
There's an old saying that's appropriate here, "there is no limit to what we can accomplish if it doesn't matter who gets the credit". A police officer stands ready to sacrifice everything, every day to stand between what's good about this world and what's bad. No credit necessary.

Sergeant Glen Bailey and I were promoted on the same day. He and my brother served together for many years, so I got to know him quite well. If I ever knew a more decent man it's unfortunate I don't remember them.

A credit to his family, community and anyone who ever looked in the mirror the first time they dawned a blue uniform and said, "This is who I am. I hope I can live up to what that means".

I remember you as my Post Sergeant when I was in the ASP Recruit Academy 1979. It was the first class attending under the Consent Decree. The character you displayed to me as an individual helped removed some bitterness I probably would have graduated with.I'am blessed to have known you. You helped shape my career.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
