This post is part of our ongoing #WhyIWearTheBadge Wednesday blog series.
The #WhyIWearTheBadge campaign is still going strong as agencies from around the world share their reasons for wearing the badge and choosing to protect and serve their communities. So far in this series we have heard from individual officers, seen posts from across agencies, and looked at how photos and video can be great mechanisms for sharing these messages.
Sometimes, all it takes is some simple words. Below are just a few examples of how law enforcement has taken to Twitter to share #WhyIWearTheBadge messages in 140 characters or less. They use simple words, but the statements they share are strong and are important for their agencies and their communities.
