Issues in Policing and Requisite Challenges by Richard LumbOne cannot imagine the encounters that will follow upon their entry into the work at hand. What people observe on the local news or read in newspaper pales to actually being present when those same stories occur. It begins with a 911 call and evolves from there. The behavior of people who may have a mental illness, substance abuse, anger, or other issue of personal conduct, is also antiseptic from one's living room. It is the closeness of smelling, tasting, feeling, hearing, seeing and physical contact where reality becomes real.To every man and woman who wears the uniform, you have a camaraderie found nowhere else in civilian life, and that sustains you. Let that beacon shine and guide your path forward, for you belong to a noble profession, one that does not exist elsewhere in the society that you travel through.
