Last Post, for now anyway.....

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday. I just finished getting the weekend crime ready for my Monday meeting. Initially I started this blog in hopes to look back on it from time to time to see if I could get some additional insight on how I came to be here at this point in my life. I joined the department when I was 26 years old. I sought advice from no one and I had no clue as to what would lie ahead of me. I jumped in with both feet and took with me my favorite episodes of Columbo (The best detective ever) and Charlie's Angels. I was Sabrina, not too pretty, but really "smart." (smile)

As the years past by, so did my life. And wow, what a transformation from the 26 year old girl I use to be to the forty something woman I am today. What I've come to realize is that the crime will always be there, the in-box will always be full, the sick days are far and few between, and your coworkers will either love you or hate you. Depending on if you're their "Supervisor" or not (lol)

As law enforcement officers, we need your help. Parenting, community outreach programs, Boys & Girls Club, Mentoring, Tutoring, Prayer meetings, police tips and anything else that would help make this city safer. And not just city, crime across America. Oftentimes, people are in their own little bubble and hoping that it doesn't affect them or assuming that it doesn't because they have never been victimized. Well, that's simply not true. Our President said it best, "We are all in this together, and together "YES WE CAN!"

With all that being said, I'm saying thanks for supporting this blog and you can find me under a tree somewhere out there with my journal writing poetry, prose and short stories!

Love, peace and blessings for a GREAT LIFE. "Don't watch it pass you by, participate in it!"

I'll see you soon at a free spirit butterfly, China's Creations(your version of hallmark), Random stuff in no particular order, and Poetry and Prose.

Of course I'll also see you at the cookout and at your wedding on the beach, your errand service for senior citizens, your funnel cake store in Southern Maryland, and your laundry mat.

Love you Sis.

WOW, be still my heart! I hope the Mrs. knows how lucky she is. A woman loves a man that "listens with his ears and his heart."

Love your "perspective" and looking forward to a HUG!

Thanks for being my #1 Fan here and helping me through the rough spots!

Love, peace and blessings big Brother!

law enforcement is not easy
you require a lot of patience with people.You put your life on the line every day and you need to know that its appreciated always.
You went into it with your eyes wide open. You wanted to do good for many people and this makes you very special
People who can't make good judgement decisions need guidance. Sometimes a good officer is one who listens.

Hi Free Spirit... I've been away for quite some time. I enjoyed your Law Enforcement blog and pray that you are happy, enjoying your breeze under the tree.
May God continue to bless you.
