The Police: "To Protect and Serve"...but no one seems to care anymore :( " compiled and written by Kimberly Koerber-Bauer-Koerber

How would you like to be the police - out there to protect and serve and receive no commendations from the public. :(  Why not make an effort to notice the police within the month of October and intentionally write a letter of appreciation to the police suburban headquarters.  Police Appreciation is needed.  For instance, yesterday, in Bexley, the Bexley police "were on the case" in front of a local Bexley, Ohio bank. For instance,
To file a compliment on Division personnel call the Columbus, Ohio Division of Police Patrol Office at 645-4580 and ask to speak with the Patrol Administrative Sergeant.

How to Compliment a Police Officer 

"Quite often a citizen might observe that a Police Department employee has performed his or her duties in a noteworthy fashion, and wonder how to go about bringing this to the attention of the... Police Department. The Chief's Office would like to hear about these good performances by our officers and/or civilian employees."

Another method:
To Compliment a Police Officer- "We are proud of the work that we do" and ... send a note or card to the attention of the Chief of Police.

 from Wikipedia -
 "The police is a personification of the state designated to put in practice the enforced law, protect property and reduce civil disorder in civilian matters.[1] Their powers include the legitimized use of force. The term is most commonly associated with police services of a state that are authorized to exercise the police power of that state within a defined legal or territorial area of responsibility. Police forces are often defined as organizations separate from any military forces, or other organizations involved in the defense of the state against foreign aggressors; however, gendarmerie and military police are military units charged with policing.

Law enforcement, however, constitutes only part of policing activity.[2] Policing has included an array of activities in different situations, but the predominant ones are concerned with the preservation of order.[3] In some societies, in the late 18th century and early 19th century, these developed within the context of maintaining the class system and the protection of private property.[4]

Alternative names for police force include constabulary, gendarmerie, police department, police service, crime prevention, protective services, law enforcement agency, civil guard or civic guard. Members can be police officers, troopers, sheriffs, constables, rangers, peace officers or civic/civil guards. Police of the Soviet-era Eastern Europe are (or were) called militsiya. The Irish police are called the Garda Síochána ("guardians of the peace"); a police officer is called a garda. As police are often in conflict with individuals, slang terms are numerous. Many slang terms for police officers are decades or centuries old with lost etymology. From Wikipedia:

"Ten Rules for Dealing with Police"  from

1. Always be calm and cool: a bad attitude guarantees a bad outcome.

2. Remain silent: what you don't say can't hurt you.

3. You have the right to refuse searches: saying no to searches can't be held against you.

4. Don't get tricked: remember, police are allowed to lie to you.

5. Determine if you're free to go: police need evidence to detain you.

6. Don't expose yourself: doing dumb stuff in public makes you an easy target.

7. Don't run: they'll catch you and make you regret it.

8. Never touch a cop: aggressive actions will only earn you a more aggressive response.

9. Report misconduct: be a good witness.

10. You don't have to let them in: police need a warrant to enter your home
