Montgomery County Police Officer Featured on CBS Sunday Morning Discussing Police Morale
Montgomery County Police officer Petr Speight was featured on a CBS Sunday Morning News piece yesterday discussing what it’s like to be an officer in 2021.
In the piece, Speight discussed with Ted Koppel why a lot of current officers are considering quitting, “just because of the, so much of the anti-police sentiment, not being treated well,” and “Those kind of things are just discouraging people from wanting to stick around. Things have just changed, the way people view us and the way they view our role in society and our jobs.”
Speight told Koppel, “It was always there before, it was a little bit, not as much.. But nowadays, people tend to come at us more with an antagonistic tone. It’s no more respect for authority or respect that we’re here to help you or to resolve a situation. People just come at us with total anger, from both sides.”
Officers from across the country offer a street-level perspective of the issues they face (from anti-police sentiment to the price paid by all officers for the actions of bad cops), and how they are working to strengthen community ties. https://t.co/AxmEQHjAbW pic.twitter.com/we6KYtEzy3
