Joe Friday Reminds Us Of Why We Should Show Gratitude For Our Police Officers

It's tough to be a police officer

In an episode of "Dragnet," Joe Friday eloquently outlines in detail what a difficult and thankless job it is and why people join the force anyway.

Joe Friday: "You'll walk your beat and try to pick up the pieces. For every crime that's committed, you've got 3 million suspects to choose from. You'll learn to live with doubt, anxiety, frustration."
