Yesterday was a good day. I’m super proud of my husband for receiving a commendation. I know I’m biased but it’s such a shame that the police get a bad rep due to a few bad people who abuse their power rather than being recognised for all the good they do and the lives that they save. Most people don’t see what I see; the countless long shifts, the overtime, the hurt of someone dying in their arms and having to break the news to their loved ones, the near death encounters, the terrorist attacks that don’t happen due to their detective work, the dedication to protect vulnerable people...I could go on. I think the police are hero’s. I think my husband is a hero.
