    My brother made front page...

    ...well, front page of the business section lol. I know some people don't like the cops... But it's nice when they are featured for the good they are and do. Congrats Ron! How come I couldn't have been riding with you that day? I coulda been all poking out from the side with the "What's going on over here?" look haha

    Awwwwwwwwww! It's your BRO!!! That is cool.

    Hey, people can bash cops but who will be the first call they'll make when they are in trouble? A cop.

    I really like it when LEOs mingle with the community. I think it makes a big difference in communities plagued with a lot of crime. People don't feel alienated from the police and are quicker to offer crime tips....and gives the kids someone to look up to.

    I know there are bad LEOs out there but...they all put their lives on the line every day and we don't think much about that.

    GO Andrew'sBro!

    It was a surprise... Officers always report to the central office where they are /what they're doing at all times of the day... The newspaper called and asked where they could run into an officer doing this next so they sent them to this office where he was currently at.

    Right now he is on this weekends off thing... Once he's back to working the weekend I'll be able to ride along some more

    That's a great idea. Maybe I'll suggest it to our local PD, and town officials. It might ease the friction in Kankakee.

    Nuts to that! He's a celebrity now and should buy the dinner!

    I agree with PAK, it's good to hear some positive news about the police.

    Great article Andrew. This puts a positive light on law enforcement and shows the difference being made to individuals in a community. It's too bad more police departments don't practice the same idea. Maybe some will catch on. Thanks for sharing.
