Police officers have been in the news a lot lately. After Barbourville Police Chief Winston Tye spoke at the Knox UNITE meeting on Tuesday, he took questions. One of the questions was, given all the police killings across the nation recently, how does that effect our local police department?
His answer was very interesting to me. It blended experience, wisdom, and sound training. He said, “If you are not a little scared, you are going to get hurt.”
His response not only impressed me, it reminded me of just how dangerous the job of our law enforcement officers is today. I would guess most of us go to work without any intention of being scared, at least not as a routine part of our job.
