Cops get a bad rap sometimes. The vast majority, however, are doing a hard job for not a lot of money, and they deserve our thanks. They are the ones out at all hours, in all weather, trying to keep us safe. Whether they are patrolling the highways, watching over our neighborhoods, or responding to an accident call, they work harder than most people give them credit for.
My house is just off one of the busier streets in town. I hear sirens constantly as ambulances, fire trucks, and police cars rush by on their way to help someone. It rarely wakes me up in the middle of the night, but even when it does, I don’t complain. If I called them, I’d want them to get to me as fast as possible. The noise is part of that package.
January 9 is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. If you have an officer or deputy in your family, are friends with one, or just want to show your local department some gratitude, these funny police mugs are a great way to do it!
1. Good Reason
Your mom, your teacher, and your local officer. These are the people it’s best to obey right away.
They’re called peace officers because that’s what they’re trying to keep. Unfortunately, some of the funniest things are in no way peaceful.
3. A Simple Solution
So if the Highway Patrol officer is letting you off with just a warning, and tells you to be safer/slower/whatever, be grateful and do it.
4. Job Security
If criminals were smart, they wouldn’t be criminals.
5. Pension, not Tension
Even after they retire, a lot of ex-cops take up another law enforcement-related job, such as store guard or company security officer.
This is only a few of the great police mugs we stock. You can see the rest by clicking that link. We know that officers usually have a partner, and we don’t want to overlook anyone. Fortunately, U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping! Spend the money you save on doughnuts.
