Merry Christmas to Law Enforcement Officers Around the World

Police Officers are a very giving and charitable group.  I have never visited a police or sheriff’s department where the staff and officers or deputies weren’t involved in many charities within their communities.  Many cops and corrections officers donate their time and money to help children, animals, families in need, our schools, and churches etc.  I expect that if you can find a charity, then you can find some cops involved to help them.

At this time of year everyone has these things on their minds but cops do these things year round.  We at CopsAlive want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, or best wishes on any holiday that you celebrate and we want to wish you all a very safe, happy and healthy New Year.  Thanks for all the great things you do all year long!

  1. Very detailed post would it be OK if i translate into Italian for my blogs readers? Thanks

  2. I lately came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first remark. I don

  3. Too whom it may concern: My family and I have a friend who is a disabled police officer. He became disabled due to injuries that he received in the line of duty. And even though he was a police officer for almost 13 years and he was injured preventing a fellow officer from being hit by a car, the thanks that he received from his department was to be called in and fired. This man has under gone numerous operations and has even had a Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant placed in him to help him cope with the pain he lives with each day. And while he told my husband that sometimes he feels that he would have been better off that day if he had died. He still refuses to give so far. He is currently trying to get his Social Security Disability started and he keeps as we do that the City of Savannah Georgia and Chatham County will change his firing to the medical retirement he deserves. We are also attempting to locate a grant that will pay for him to take a paralegal course through Blackstone Paralegal School, this way it will provide him with a way to keep his mind on something other than his situation. Is there any place that you know of that may help him? I can provide you with his name and address if you want it.
    With Regards,
