What is commonly accepted or overlooked in many professions is not overlooked and is, in fact, held to a higher standard in the policing community. This being said, what a person does, that could be considered slanderous or upsetting to any portion of the community that a person has taken an oath to ‘serve and protect’ should not be over looked.
