Suppose there was no police force ? What if we could no longer pick up the phone and dial 911 in times of trouble?. Many times the entire police force gets a bad name because of the misdeeds of a few of it's members - those members who forget their pledge to serve and protect. But there are many police officers who go the extra mile to deliver good service to everyone. Have you had good or bad experiences with the police? And how would you protect your family and property without an operational police force?

@cacay1 we are not afraid of our government. We are free to speak up what we don't like. Yes, we were not attacked but many times the ISIS have tried but no success. I hope our country will stay strong. We have election this month and I don't know yet whom to vote.

The police here in Latvia are very tricky and shifty. They will protect people and do their duty but they can also be very aggressive and abusive so it is best if you don't have to deal with them. Of course if you needed protection then you would have to be very careful when calling them.
Most law enforcement are good but there are bad apples in every job and they make everyone else look bad. I have always had a positive experience with the police. Perhaps because I have never been involved in a crime. But whenever I call them to investigate a problem or a theft they have been very professional.

Personally I cannot imagine how life would be without the Police. Overall they have been a blessing. Yes things may not have always gone my way when I have needed them, but it was partly due to the way Cops in general or the public was taught how to deal with Domestic violence back in the day.
• Cagayan De Oro, Philippines
It will be a scary environment in the absence of police in our area. The criminals would surely harm anyone they like.Many hate police, they must not generalize for there are only very few not so committed to their service.
I spent three years of my childhood - from age 4 to 7 - on a small island of about 300 residents. It was the largest of over 200 islands dotted along the coast of Guyana. There was no police on that island. If there was a serious dispute which really needed police involvement - someone would travel by speedboat to the mainland and fetch a constable. The trip took about three hours both ways.
