LEO and Medics are not stupid

I'll admit that some of us do some crazy things. Take for instance my friend who is part of the Fort Worth Fire Department. He's got a heart of gold but he's hyperactive as hell. Sometimes his brothers and sisters have to reign him in. It just goes to show that we are all human.

One thing we are not is stupid.

Did you know that there are 680,000 Police Officers in the United States. 50% of them have graduated from High School and earned an Associate Degree. 36% of our nations EMS system have Bachelor degrees or higher.

As for street smarts, we are constantly educating ourselves. Firearms classes, Self Defense, First Aid, Basic Life Support, Advance Life Support, Mental Health Education, and familiarity of street drugs.

Wait a minute that last selection didn't seem right. Police Officers and Medics are learning the names of street drugs. They are learning about what they look like. They are learning about how they affect the body.

We may be a little on the strange side personality wise. One thing for sure is that we are not stupid.
