In my line of work I meet a lot of good cops.
I think that makes me more fortunate than most. I say that because most people tend to meet police at some of the worst times of their lives.
I’ve been there, too. Traffic tickets and accidents and family tragedies, we all have.
For some, those unfortunate circumstances are the only times they encounter police officers on the job and good or bad, they come away from those experiences with a general impression that can color all future interactions with someone wearing a badge.
