In this day and age, there’s a lot of tension between police officers and civilians. Many people feel like they can’t trust the police. In fact, there are a lot of problems in society that probably need to be fixed in order for people to trust law enforcement.
But the good news is that many police officers are making it their mission to better serve their communities. They want people to see them as public servants and helpers, not just authorities. Thankfully, with the rise of social media, that’s easier than ever before.
