The Thin Blue Line is another phrase to identify the highly dedicated law enforcement community that keeps our neighborhood safe, our cities working in a safe manner and keeps its citizens protected from those whose purpose is crime, chaos and the disruption of the fabric of our society.
Not everyone may know that the Thin Blue Line is called this for a reason. If we look at the numbers to see how thin this line really is let’s look at 2016 on an average across America of the ratio of police officers to the the citizenry.
In 2016, police departments serving cities with populations exceeding 25,000 employed an average of 16.8 officers and 21.4 total personnel for every 10,000 residents. (Reference – http://www.governing.com) The Thin Blue Line line is pretty thin and with the slanted reporting of our police officers in our American media the ability to replenish the ranks based on the medias desire to create undesirability of this profession making the ability to staff in major metropolitan US cities even more difficult. The Thin Blue Line still will not falter or wane and these incredible men and women that put on the uniform of a police officer each and every day putting themselves at risk to help others, to ensure peace and to serve and protect America’s communities must be honored. They have one of the most difficult jobs in this country and still hit the streets every day helping to ensure the American way of life and it is because of this that Blue Lives Matter!
