I feel after 9-11 the American people gained more respect for the police. They saw many police officers give their lives to help and save people. They put their lives in danger during the search and rescue of 9-11 victims. Many police officers are still suffering due to all the dust and debris they inhaled from the building collapse. In a sense, they are still giving their lives and fighting for the American people and country. For those reasons I feel the police department has gained great respect from all American’s and from people all over the world.
It is important to keep the respect the police force has gained during today’s threats ongoing. If a terrorist threat becomes a real situation the police can keep the people calm and under control. They can handle things in an orderly manner but only if they have the trust of
the people. Trusting the police will give the American people comfort that they are being watched over and that they will do everything possible to keep them out of harms way. If something does happen the police will be there to guide them through difficult situations.
Police officers are trained to handle terrorist situations so it is important for people to trust them....
