SHIFTY

Having a Police Officer as a husband is not easy. I constantly worry about my husband when he is at work, I worry for his safety and his health. A cop's schedule is not really ideal, they usually work on a shifting schedule. That kind of schedule is brutal on their bodies. When he comes home from his graveyard shift I see the tiredness in his eyes. I try to help him undress and by golly, you would be surprise how heavy police belts are. With the guns, handcuffs,radio , keys, and the latest is the Taser gun they just got issued. I always get nervous when he tries to check on it, I wonder if s the Taser works the same as stun guns? I am just at peace now that we got a safe for his gun. That is the first thin he usually does when he is upstairs changing. Its a relief to know that is in a safe place that my kids cannot open and cannot play with. I feel bad for my husband that he has to work so much but I know he loves his job and that is the reason why he persevered in his line of work, for his passion.

Hopefully he's one of the few good ones who does it for the right reasons? So many of them are just jackbooted thugs who went into it to enjoy the whole power trip. I know, I spent six years working among them, until I couldn't stand it any more. Sadly, the days when our local police were just adult Boy Scouts is now long past....

However, the few good ones left are worth their weight in Gold - for the public!

I can relate to your post. My husband was a police officer for 12 years and that worried me a lot. Good thing he's promoted and now has a desk job.
