What do you like about being a police officer?

I have worked in the community policing unit since 2005. I like that I have the capability and resources to get people the help they really need, whether it's a bicycle to go to work or collecting gifts for kids in the domestic violence shelters during the holidays, etc. I work with seniors to help them with services and companions through our TRIAD program. I like going to community events, chatting with citizens, hanging out with the kids, and letting people see that officers are human too. I get the opportunity to help solve issues that may not be criminal, but does affect the quality of life for people.
