TTBL is a group devoted to stories, issues, and concerns of the law enforcement community. It is not restricted to officers, their spouses, and family members, but seeks to engage and inform the wider community about aspects of our mission. That mission is the same as our motto: To serve and protect.
When law enforcement officers do a good and effective job, you are not too likely to hear about it or take notice.
When errors of judgment are made and there is a negative outcome, the problems are amplified and receive much coverage.
The law enforcement community serves a fickle public. When we're needed, we are welcomed with an open embrace. When we clash with the public, we become the enemy.
I established this site in the hopes of reminding the public that we are not "the blue meanies," but rather your neighbors. Work with us. We work with you everyday.
