John Marsden Writing Topic #462
Recount any experiences you’ve had with the police and describe your feelings about the police generally**
The only experiences I’ve had with police are when they have door knocked to ask about my neighbours in my home town and as a one-time witness to a car accident involving two people on the run. In these experiences, the police have been consummate professionals, direct and in control.
My feelings about the police generally is that they are there to serve the community and I believe they do a good job. It takes a special person to be a police officer, I certainly wouldn’t be able to do it or deal with what they have to deal with on a daily basis.
