Thank you to a caring police officer

Print Article

We all focus on the bad in life and forget that God still has some good police serving the law. Now donít get me wrong, I know there are some bad cops. But we shouldnít forget the good officers.

And thatís my story today. In early May, driving on a state highway, I got pulled over by Moses Lake Police Officer Frey. I was so nervous because I just got my driverís license in 2017. But Officer Frey took my nervousness away. He walked up and said, ďYou know why I pulled you over? You were going 52 in a 70 mph speed zone. Youíre driving safely, but my concern is for your safety. These cars are driving fast.Ē

After Officer Frey ran my driverís license, he returned it to me and his concern was still for my safety. He said, ďJames, let me pull out first and you follow me.Ē

Officer Frey, James Earl Jones wants to thank you for treating me with the utmost respect and kindness. Thanks for putting my safety over my color. Officer Frey, you are one of the good cops who donít get remembered. But Iíll never forget your concern for my safety. From the start of the traffic stop to the end, your concern was James Earl Jonesí safety. And in July I will be requesting to do a ride-along with you. Myself, Iíve always wanted to be a police officer. Officer Frey, you confirm that vision for me. Thank you.

James Earl Jones
