For any community or workplace, an off duty police officer can be as valuable out of uniform as he is in uniform. Their skills and tactical knowledge are the result of rigorous training and invaluable experience gained in policing in what can often be tough, stressful situations. There is also an innate discipline about a police officer that can set them apart from other security personnel.
There are countless stories of where an off duty police officer stepping in made all the difference.
In November 2015 two NYPD cops intervened and stopped a knife-wielding attacker when they were visiting Los Angeles. And it’s not only their sharp policing skills that count – police officers have other very handy skills to call on when needed. For example, Detective Angel Barbosa was able to save a drowning 6-year- old girl in Boston by applying CPR until medical help arrived.
