To Protect and to Serve

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     What do you do when you see an accident? In many places you call 9-1-1; otherwise, you would call the police. The same is true for any kind of trouble where you need help from the law. A police officer's job is to help keep our towns and neighborhoods peaceful. Another name for a policeman is a peace officer.
 
2     Many police departments use the words "To Protect and to Serve" as their motto. You might think they protect us just by patrolling in their cars. That is a good way to help keep people from speeding or breaking other traffic laws, but that is not the only way.
 
3     Some officers become part of a mounted force. They ride horses in parks where cars cannot go. Mounted police help control crowds and keep them from rioting. Large cities sometimes have a lot of mounted officers. Sometimes they put on special riding displays. These are often colorful and fun to watch. They also let the public see the training and teamwork between the men and the horses.
