May fortune favour the bold......
One thing to remember is that all of the blues are on the same side, from Chief Constables to Police Constables, from PCSOs to Special Constables like yourself, from Control Room Staff to Traffic Wardens. When one bleeds, the rest follow suite.
When something like this happens it reminds all Police Officers and those that work for the Police, of their own mortality. You, being young and fresh faced, once thought you were immortal, that feeling is beginning to fade away.
A Police Community Support Officer has been stabbed, seriously injured in the line of duty. This just shows that PCSOs are as brave as any other member of the Police Force. This Community Officer did his duty, he stood firm when other people fled, for this he has payed a high price, but a price that will not be forgotten.
