Being a police officer used to be a thankful profession. I have young siblings that grew up with goals, aspirations and heart to be a police officer, because I've seen how that has diminished due to human beings just loosing sight and respect of just doing the right thing, unfortunately it is not a thankful job anymore. I begged my brothers not to be cops because I felt they deserved more and didn't need the underappreciated career that puts there life on the line every day, so thankfully there are still souls there that have the bravery and heart to protect and serve our community's, so thank you to all that keep our communities safe...And shame on those who think defunding our protectors is going to make us safer. In this crazy time they need us to defend them more than anything not to defund them, so thank you again to all the brave hearted police officers that make us able to sleep at night.
God Bless our Police Department, they are the best around, always involved with our town, always there for benefits, causes, etc. always involved with the community.
Thank you for the sacrifices you make each and everyday! We will never allow a few bad apples to disgrace the true hero's of our communities! It's time for everyone to stand up for the truth and what's right!
Because all of my contact with the Police in Worcester as a young child , I wanted to dedicate my career toward a helping profession. I chose Elementary Teaching to reach the next generation in a positive way. To prepare children to adequately meet their goals and obligations of our future generation.
My husband and brother in law are Police officers for OPD. Our youngest daughter aspires to be one....God Bless all our officers in Blue...we love you, we need you and we respect you!
One recent experience is when my senior daughter wanted to put together a parade through town for the senior class. Not only did the officers scheduled jump at the idea, several officers volunteered their time to help with traffic, and to escort the senior class through our town!
I was a pedestrian that was hit by a car last year. The response from the Shrewsbury police was fantastic and their efforts in prosecuting the driver were greatly appreciated. One of the police officers even stopped by the hospital to check on me!
Years ago, when I was a child a police officer carried me out of the house after I was abused by the hands of my own father. He was calm and seemed to be genuinely concerned with what took place. I am forever grateful and I wish I knew his name!
He was an officer for the Manatee County Police Department. #BackTheBlue
In my line of work as a first responder (EMT) and professional security manager I work very closely with the Framingham Police. They have been nothing but fantastic to work with.
I am a firefighter and I work closely with the police. They are at all our calls and we all have each other’s back.
I had the amazing experience to work with the Houston Police Department, Narcotics Division, while assigned from the USAF as part of a drug interdiction program in the early 90's. My brother is a State Trooper in Maine and I fly the thin blue line colors on my truck doors, back window and trailer hitch guard. I am SO PROUD of the men and women in blue and SO THANKFUL for your dedication and fearlessness to protect all of us! There are SO MANY MORE that believe in you all that don't!!! YOU ARE LOVED!!! Keep up the good work and know there are those of us out here that if we see you in distress WE will come to action and help defend you.
I am a firefighter that depends upon and works beside police every day. In my experience (on and off duty) the police conduct themselves with honor and dignity in a time where everyone despises them. They fund your kids tee ball teams, they donate money to literally thousands of causes and most importantly, they donate their time to the community and to make the places they work and live safer for EVERYONE. Without our support, they are being crippled and exposed. Thank a cop, they deserve it.
Thank you for putting your lives on the line for us a daily!!! If not for the men and women in blue we would have pure chaos and anarchy. It saddens and angers me to see what’s happening to officers.
My 8 year old son who became violently aggressive, to my husband who had a cornea transplant. Also to me which I didn’t think he would do and I have MS, I called the police for help cause he kicked me in my face. He obviously was suffering from side effects from his medication from his adhd. Police were so kind hearted to him and not at all rude to anyone one even the paramedics where awesome. I deal (no crime) with police in every state without any issues. This is why I will always RESPECT all in BLUE!!
My family will ALWAYS support our police. My son (4 years old) has made "thank you" cards and hands them out whenever we can to thank these brave men and women who put on a uniform every day. Thank you for protecting us and being there when we need you most.
Dalton police dept came to my home because of a domestic violence issue and they were very professional and aided me and my family we are now very happy and will always defend our local police may god bless them
When I was a daisy in Girl Scouts I went to my local police station and got a tour and they took a picture with me and my troop. It was really fun!
Officers are my friends and my family. Thank you for your sacrifice. I hope to support you.
Blue life matters, they enforce the law and protect us.
We do need police, law and order. This is America, not a communist country, if someone wants to live in a communist country, go to North Korea.
Please let me know how I can help.
I am the president of Local 504. Worcester Police Officials International Brotherhood of Police Officers. Thank you for your support. If we can collaborate on anything please reach out. It would be a pleasure to meet or speak with you.
A couple of years ago one of my daughters received a telephone call from someone stating that they had kidnapped her brother. The caller gave info that was extremely realistic right down to where my son was in the last hour at an appointment! I had her keep the caller on the line and contacted the police, within minutes a detective called me to get information and to give me directions on what to do. Unfortunately my son was not answering his cellphone, and this panicked us. The WPD was helpful in finding out this was a scam for money and assured us they would follow up on the phone number. We could have just been told it’s probably a hoax and call back if you don’t locate your son, but they didn’t!
In my experience all my life being a rape victim when I was 15 the police helped me without bias there was a man that was well known in our town and we'll light they believe me off the top they offered their help with counseling everything bringing me to the hospital and As I Grew when I was pulled over for something I did and I had a legitimate excuse like my girlfriend was in the hospital and I was going 20 miles over the speed limit the officer understood cited me for following too closely but then gave me an escort to the hospital where she was both these officers were good people I was married to a police officer once and it didn't work out well but he was a stand-up man and a stand-up father and husband I've had a lot of friends that are police officers there are some bad apples but there's bad apples in every Walk of Life but they are here the good ones are here to defend our rights they are here to help us they are here to keep us in check when they do their job correctly we sh
Fortunately my experiences with the police have been minor. Since seeing how the events that have unfolded in major cities since the unfortunate incident in Minneapolis and the call for defunding the police I was relieved to see this sign. As one of the silent and law abiding citizens I felt compelled to add my voice. Anyone with good conscience and common sense knows any civilization needs laws and that laws need to be enforced. The only ones that benefit from defunded police are criminals. It's hard to believe we have gotten to the point in our society were the mob and radical politicians are strong enough and threaten to tear down the walls of law and order to chaos and anarchy. In my opinion, our police should be properly supported and funded so they can do their job to serve and protect our communities.
We Back the Blue every day!
Can't wait to put up the lawn sign!
Many years ago, I was being attacked by a boyfriend, who was drunk, in a black-out & trying to kill me. The police came and saved me from him. He also attacked them. I have never had a bad experience with a police officer. They have been nothing but kind and respectful towards me & everyone I see them interact with. Since I moved to Los Angeles, I have had to call the police several times; once for a hit & run, 2 weeks after I moved there, another, for a trespasser hiding in our bushes, near our condo gate keypad, and twice more over concern for homeless people. They were nothing but kind, professional & respectful. As a woman who is usually alone, I feel MUCH safer when the police are around! I appreciate all that they do for us to protect us!
Over a 31 year career, I've performed CPR and First Aid on several people who ended up surviving. Some for years and some only for a few days, just long enough for loved ones to come and say their final goodbyes.
However, one of my most memorable saves was not from a cardiac arrest, but from an actual arrest. A man came to the police station one day and thanked me for arresting him for OUI. He told me it was one year to the day I locked him up and that he had not drank any alcohol since. The man said it was his "wake up call" that he was either going to kill himself or someone else, and thanked me for saving his life.
An officer was so compassionate to me when I called in an overdose, they arrived on scene and could see that I was shaken I explained that my daughter had died a year ago from an overdose. The officer was empathetic and so kind to me during our interaction.
Yes! We Back the Blue!
God Bless our Police, our Country and her people!
I’m in need of a sign for my personal residence in Sutton MA. I’d also be honored to help distribute them in the central MA area if you need the help. In full disclosure I’m not a LEO, but my brother is, on top of the fact that this campaign going on is sickening. At a minimum please let me know where/how to get a sign for myself.
Thank you so much for doing this!!! Americans need to wake up and speak out before anarchy overwhelms our society!!!
I'm in Shrewsbury! May I have a sign? Thank you!!
Hello DYP -
I love the message ! How does one get put up in an area? My business is in Plainville, MA. I saw that one is in Wrentham & Milford. Thank you!
I love the Defend your police signs I’ve seen. Wondering if you have smaller ones available for peoples yards?
I just wanted to say I stand by all officers, not all are bad. I had my fair share of unfair treatment. Thank you for what you do, for keeping us safe, and keeping our families safe. I want to help anyway I can. Thank you for all you do, and thank you for keeping me safe, and my family safe.While facing hatred every day. Keep doing what your doing good people notice all your efforts.
Thank you for everything you do each and every day!
Back the Blue and that's exactly what I will do! We have some of the finest officers anywhere! I've known our police force since 1978. I've seen some great officers come and go. Some were here before I moved to town and have retired since thru the years. I wasnt always the greatest person and I absolutely gave them some scuff as a kid and teenager but, they are one of the best! O will always back my BLUE!!!!!
Why did you take your signs down in Milford? My family hopes they can go back up.
Response: The signs are not permitted. Our intention is to leave them up for 3 to 5 days per location and then rotate them throughout the state. Currently, they are placed in Shrewsbury, Westboro and Worcester.
