We have received quite a few short pieces; many of them quite inspirational.  Inclusion in this section is limited to work written by law enforcement officials such as police officers, sheirff's deputies, correctional officials and other sworn agents of the government.  Moreover, many of these works are presented by law enforcement officials from countries other than the United States.  We do publish work by non-police officers, so if you have authored a poem, prayer, article or short story about policing, police officers, law enforcement or criminal justice you can have it published here.  Click to submit your work.
