Police Officer
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Are you an honest person? Can people count on you to keep your word? Do other people think you are responsible? Do you have good judgment? Can you think clearly in an emergency? If you answered, "yes" to all these questions, you might be a good police officer.
 
2     Police officers have two main jobs. They help keep people safe. They protect people's property. They do these things in many ways. They watch for trouble. They answer calls for help. Some may direct traffic. Others try to find out how an accident happened. Some are trained to give first aid. They try to catch criminals. They make arrests. They make sure people obey traffic laws.
 
3     Some police officers patrol in cars or on motorcycles. Some use bicycles, especially in parks. Others use boats. Some even ride horses! Officers with special training may work with teams like the K-9 corps or a SWAT unit. Working with an explosives unit can be very dangerous. Many officers work in jails and in courts. Some are trained to work in schools as resource officers.
