After reading the other thread, I thought it would be nice to start a positive thread which recognizes and praises all of the great police officers out there.

So if you have a good story, post it here:

The Metuchen police are always a pleasure to deal with. Just this past week after my mom put the trash in the outside can, she jumped when she saw a raccoon in there. We were worried about what to do and called the Metuchen police. As always the officer who came was courteous and helped us deal with the situation. It was such an odd and funny incident but he handled it with the kind and professional attitude I have always seen in Metuchen.

So congrats and thanks to the men and women in blue for being versatile and brave enough to handle the bad guys and nice enough to help regular folks and raccoons.

It's their job and they get paid for it. All I ask is that they be competent.

I just spend a few days down in Washington honoring our fallen officers. Just wanted to say thanks to those who put their lives on the line for us. Thanks for starting this thread.

Absolutely, understood that it's their job and all, but they really go about it well.

Thanks to all the NJ police officers!

Ahhh what is it you do for a living? You must be a real treat to work for/with. Besides being nice, it's good business to be able to say thank you and appreciate someone for doing a job well.

I've got a real lovely feel good story that involved both the police and firemen. It happened in Cliffside Park about ten years ago.

There was this elderly ecctrentic fellow who used to go around the area looking for metel to scrap and bottles and cans to return. His property looked like a small junkyard. He was a hard working guy who kept to himself and never bothered anybody.

The local mailman called the police when he noticed that he was not picking up his mail for quite some time. When the police arrived the noticed the poor old timer was dead. So what did they do? They searched the house for anything they could steal. They took $150,000.00 in cash this guy worked his whole life for and split it amoung themselves.

To cover there tracks one of the police officers got his brother who was a fireman also in Cliffside Park and arrainged to have to other poor dimwit to set the house on fire. Of corse they got caught and folded like a deck of cards.

Another lovely feel good story was the cops in the next town over. Not sure if it was Ridgefield or Palasades Park. I think it was Pal Park. The police pulled off about eighty burglerys that were reported, God only knows how many went unreported. Some of them would break into the home and the others would be look outs. They used to pray on immigrants. Could you imagin what these people went through, some of there lifes ruined. They would have got away with it if the FBI didn't notice the unusual amount of unsolved crimes and did an investagation of there own.

Those are a few of my feel good storys. I feel good that they got caught.

To me its amazing that cops and firemen are always looking for a pat on the back. You never hear construction workers telling anybody that will listen that they put there lifes on the line everyday.
