They put on their uniforms every day
In addition, for their safety I do pray.
Some will be in civilian disguise so from the criminals
They can hide, while it may be an undercover task
Moreover, their disguise may not last.
If found out by the criminal mind, their life is on the line.
While the uniformed officers are targets in plain view
And hiding in disguise they cannot do.
They ride around in their police cars
And can be seen from very far.
Their jobs are quite a few-from accidents to robberies
To family abuse too.
They are first to respond to the calls
And they get them all.
Their uniforms may be different from county to county
And from state to state, and in an emergency they all relate.
The largest family you will ever find
And their dedication will blow your mind.
