“To the PC on his first shift, polished boots and ironed seams, the text from his Mum for luck
His first call a drunk, aggressive man, his boots now smudged with vomit …ACAB
To the PC arriving on scene, a 13-year-old boy stabbed in the back, blood gushing like a terrifying tap. Their trembling hands meet momentarily. ‘You’re going to be ok’ a lie, a hopeless lie. His pulse fades and gulp. Not another life. …ACAB
To the PC sat out in -5 temperatures for 10 hours, protecting the scene of a sexual assault while detectives work tirelessly to piece together the evidence. The unconditional desperation for justice …ACAB
To the PC who has missed the birth of his firstborn, because a breakthrough in a murder investigation takes prescient. His babies first birthday party- the day of the trial …ACAB
To the PC who was missed at home on Christmas Day to protect other families while they tuck into a succulent turkey ….ACAB
To the PC knocking on the door of a Mothers house to inform her that her daughter had been involved in a fatal RTC. The bloodcurdling scream kept him awake that night. …ACAB
To the PC mopping his upper lip of spit, hoping and praying his Hepatitis vaccination has worked. The drunken suspect gets off with a slapped wrist. CPS strikes again. …ACAB
To the PC having some time off in London Town, to being faced with terrorists armed with machetes. He’s slashed across the face numerous times, his life in danger, his family at home blissfully unaware. All to protect the people. …ACAB
To the PC attending a train crash. The desperate screams for help. But he must attend those who are silent first, if they are alive. He never returned to work again; he couldn’t shut his eyes of the horror. …ACAB
To the PC who had to view images of child abuse during an investigation. A defenceless twelve-year-old girl. Doesn’t look dissimilar to his own child. With gritted teeth, he treats the monster with dignity and respect as he guides him before the custody desk …ACAB
To the white PC standing with people of colour, longing for understanding, education and change. Black lives matter has always been their mantra. But they are branded racist pigs. …ACAB
To the PC who is utterly disgusted by US police brutality, who wears a uniform to make change but is still branded a villain. Her husband, a black man whom she adores. …ACAB
To the PC who disarms a woman suffering a mental health crisis. The seven-inch knife inches away from her throat. His life flashes before his eyes, and he hasn’t the time to text his wife to tell her he loves her. He disarmed her just in time. … ACAB
To the PC who has to tell the worried mother her child was found dead. The poor Mourning mother slams the door in her face. The PC not to blame but grief has to blame somebody. …ACAB
To the PC who isn’t medically trained delivers a newborn baby, because our ambulances are too stretched. That first cry he wishes he heard from his own child, had he not been working. …ACAB
To the PC who runs across busy roads, over a wall and onto a roof. All to catch a man who and just robbed an elderly lady at knifepoint. He received a caution. …ACAB
To the PC who calls out a bad cop, though only few. Because there really is nobody more despising of a bad cop, than a good cop it’s true …ACAB
To the Black PC who is heckled in the street because he is a traitor, snake, snitch. When all he wants is to help people, whatever their heritage …ACAB
To the PC who stands on her doorstep at 8 pm to clap for the NHS before her night shift. A moment of thanks for our heroes. A quick change into uniform and she somebody yells ‘pig’ from across the road …ACAB
And to all the PC’s who continue to put their lives on the line, for each and everybody of all creeds, colours and backgrounds. We see you. We hear you. We thank you.
Not all Cops are B*stards. Say it a little louder. “

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
