enforcement is not all cuff 'em and stuff 'em. We're dealing with
all types of crimes, criminals and illegal acts. These affect the
offender, victim, officer and society as a whole. Sometime we overlook
the common denominator, people, individuals, human beings that, in some
way or another, need our help. People have problems, people hurt.
Violence can be a way of expressing that hurt. Drugs and alcohol
can change a very beautiful individual into a predator. Money, marriage
and children are just a few examples of life's situtions that can break
a person and put them over the edge. Then there are people who just
don't care. Officers must deal with these individuals on a daily
bases. We try to assist both the officer, the offender and the victim
in starting or returning to a life full of joy as it should be. We
look at the heart. You have to start somewhere.
