Awesome Natalia! Im sure youll get a better understanding. My closest friend is a Fire Captain, Head of Homejand Security and Emergency
Services/Search and Rescue...and another is a Police Officer...two in fact.
Negatives and all recently about LEO's...I know these guys well. Very well. In and out of uniform, they all would die for me in a second. And the Fire
Captain did save my life...and received an award for doing so from the American Heart Association.
Whats obvious...at least to me...talk to them out of uniform? They are one way. 10 minutes later and IN uniform, they flip into professional
mode...but still treats me and everyone else..the same. The difference is the uniform. If I didnt know these guys...I would know that. But they switch
on the positive vibes doubletime when they change clothes.
Yesterday I was standing and talking to the captain laughing about something...and he stopped and said "hold on" listening to his radio..."We have a
helicopter 3 minutes out-2 passes and down". That quick...and we both moved out and away.
The point I guess Im trying to make is they go through modes, sometimes in the same conversation, events, minute and the next second. He stopped and
went into mode...I did too...but then again..its what we do...and its understood.
I dont think we give any of them enough credit. Get rid of the bad ones, hold em accountable...but then give the rest aneven shake. 99.9% of them
would die for you and me...or save your live like Capt. did mine.
Good luck with your class! Best,
