Touching Reasons Why Police Officers Wear The Badge

It takes a very special person to become a police officer and I wonder what motivates them to risk his or her life every day for the well-being of others.

The officers of the Hampton Police Department in Virginia created the touching video below. Each officer holds up cardboard messages that say why they choose to wear the badge. One officer was robbed and shot previously, and after this tragic experience, he vowed to help others just like he was helped. Another officer survived a violent attack and because he survived, he believed it was his duty to protect others from these attacks.
