Positive Police Stories
Small acts of kindness that make a big difference.
“Police officer” is the answer many young kids give when asked what they want to be when they grow up. Police are real-life superheroes in the eyes of many, thanks to officers like these who go above and beyond their call of duty.
1. “When No One Showed Up to Autistic Boy’s Birthday Party, Strangers (Cops & FireFighters) Saved the Day”
Later in the week, the department sent over police cars, fire trucks, a SWAT van and a canine unit.
“At first he was scared and got a little upset but when I explained it was all for him, he just loved it,” Buratti said.
Someone from the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department also saw the post. They sent a helicopter to join in the celebration. For twenty minutes it flew over their house, circling and swooping low again and again to make sure everyone knew it was for her son, Buratti said.
2. “Police Officers Take Daughter of Fallen Cop to Father-Daughter Dance”
3. “Officers Act of Kindness Helps Shoplifter Out of Difficult Situation”
4. “Cop Carries Women with MS Down Stairs”
5. “Police Officer’s Last Act of Kindness Minutes before Death”
6. “Texas Officer Gives Homeless Man Helping Hand” (no picture)
7. “Photo of Toronto Cop Mark Borsboom Tying Senior’s Shoes is Touching”

6 quotes to strengthen your use-of-force training
Being willing to employ an effective technique or tactic the instant it is justified
will do more to control a suspect than starting with an inadequate one
1. “If you’re in a fair fight, you didn’t plan it properly.”
2. “What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins but does
so with ease. Hence his victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor
credit for courage.”
3. “The skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible
and does not miss the moment to defeat the enemy.”
4. “By using good tactics, we lower the chance of resistance. By lowering the
chance of resistance, we lower the chance of injury. By lowering the chance of
injury, we lower the chance of liability.”
5. “Strategy inadequately learned is the cause of serious wounds.”
6. “Unrealistic training leads to unrealistic expectations and unrealistic expec-
tations are deadly on the street.”
