from ‘End Of Watch’ – just a resource – RIP PC Fiona Bone & PC Nicola Hughes

“I am the police, and I’m here to arrest you. You’ve broken the law. I did not write the law. I may disagree with the law, but I will enforce it. No matter how you plead, cajole, beg or attempt to stir my sympathy. Nothing you do will stop me from placing you in a steel cage with gray bars. If you run away I will chase you. If you fight me I will fight back.
By law I am unable to walk away. I am a consequence. I am the unpaid bill. I am fate with a badge. Behind my badge is a heart like yours. I bleed, I think, I love. And although I am but one man, I have thousands of brothers and sisters who are the same as me. They will lay down their lives for me and I them.
We stand watch together. The thin-blue-line, protecting the prey from the predators, the good from the bad.
We are the police.”

RIP PC Fiona Bone & PC Nicola Hughes

Friends would often ask me, on hearing of a Police Officer’s death, ” did you know that officer?”
I would say…. ” What? You mean that girl who joined the Police Service because she wanted to help people, fight crime and make a difference to people’s lives. The officer who would walk the streets in the rain checking shop doorways while you were asleep in a warm bed, who would attend traffic accidents
and try to ignore the horrors that she saw whilst being professional, the girl who would then have to go round to a home and tell the occupiers that their loved one had died in that wreck. That officer who would arrest some violent criminal, get injured in the process, spend hours on paperwork, be late home for dinner on more than one occasion only to see months later, that violent criminal walk free. That office
r who stood behind a riot shield against an angry mob, in fear for her life but standing firm, protecting the people she chose to serve. That officer who missed many important family events because she was working ungodly hours patrolling the streets keeping them as safe as she could so that you and your family did not have to live in fear. That officer who would regularly be spat and called a pig, a thug, and a racist, but was in fact just like you, an ordinary girl but doing an extraordinary job in extremely difficult times…… Did i know that Police Officer who died?
I never met her before in my life……..
But YES, I knew her, she was my colleague, my family, and I knew her very well…….
