What is your Legacy as a Police Officer?

What legacy will you leave from your job in law enforcement? Lives saved? People helped? or Communities changed? What legacy will you leave in life? A healthy child? A happy and financially secure family? Maybe an improved world? Cops are no different than most people who want to make a difference in the world and in fact I would say that we have an even healthier dose of that desire to make a positive impact. I would also suggest that we have a greater chance to make that world changing difference just by the nature of our personalities. We are problem solvers, we are leaders and we know how to manage people. We are also very well connected with our communities and know how to make things happen.
