Here's what a police department does when service is part of their credo
Original post made by Watcher, Atherton: other, on Dec 15, 2012
Based on the events of today, please take the time to view the following video: “Run.Hide.Fight. Surviving an Active Shooter Event.” This is a 6-minute long public service announcement produced by the City of Houston with instructions on what to do if you find yourself in the middle of an active shooter event.
They have many other public and community service announcements and photos on this page. I encourage readers to view it.
Let's contrast this to the Atherton Police Officer's Association page on Facebook. It's all about grousing about their compensation, attacking council members, and sending off letters to residents to tell them for whom to vote.
Here's a data point: Hillsborough police officers make LESS than Atherton cops.
Just goes to show how a few bad chiefs can permanently devastate a police department, by hiring the wrong officers (who can't be fired) and thus creating a toxic atmosphere that goes on and on and on.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength . . .
