Dear Editor,

Dear good cop, this is a letter to say thank you.

Dear good cop, many of us civilians can only imagine what a day is like being in your shoe.

Dear good cop, we may never know and we can never tell,

of the many things you face and how fellow civilians, criminals, other persons who try hard to make your life a living hell.

Dear good cop, I never know you existed.

Dear good cop, I always thought that police always do wrong and in their favour the story is twisted.

Dear good cop, there are good, clean-hearted human beings within the police force such as you.

Dear good cop, thank you for proving many of us wrong and shaming those who are total opposite of you.

Dear good cop, thank you for being a good officer both on duty and off duty.

Dear good cop, thanks for extending yourself to victims and their family.

Dear good cop, thank you for treating others like human beings irrespective of the situation.

Dear good cop, thank you for keeping your promise to serve, protect and reassure this nation.

Dear good cop, we can never exhaust the many good things you do.

But, dear good cop, I just want to say a warm, big, hearty thank you.

Dear good cop, you are serious about your profession, you mean business.

Dear good cop, I just want to say thank you for existing.

You stay away from corruption.

You wear your uniform with pride.

Though the various statistics are outrageous yet from your face a smile you do not hide.

There are so many things that discourage you daily,

yet you find the impetus to carry out your duty.

Thank you for the many sacrifices you have done.

Thank you for reporting to work whether rain or sun.

Thank you for doing good in the community.

Thank you for your years of service to this nation and country.

Dear good cop, we can never thank you enough.

But, dear good cop, I want you to know that we appreciate you because your job is very hard, rough and tough.

Don't worry if you get no accolade.

Just remember when that day comes and your name is called march in style and salute the chief himself as He crowns you and says, “Well done, my child.”

Please, I beseech you, let nothing or no one change you.

We need you. Yes, we do, dear good cop.
