By PoliceOne Staff Yeah, your dad might've been a bit of a hardass when you were growing up, but he probably gave you some pretty good advice along the way. In honor of Father’s Day, we asked you to share advice from dad that you've found useful on patrol. Below is a collection of the best responses. Be sure to check out top tips from mom here.
  • If you’re going to do something and you don’t know if it’s the right thing to do, imagine me standing behind you watching. You’ll make the right decision every time. – Rhonda Trekell Bays Treat every person with respect no matter what. Giving respect to others is more about the man you are than whoever they might be or what they have done. – Derek John Instead of being a hand crank, try being a self-starter. – Franklin Marino Don't take any wooden nickels! – Frank Keough Know that you will not change the world but you have an opportunity to help make a change. – Tim Menard Never turn your back on a woman during a domestic violence call. – Sifu Says Watch their hands but talk to them like your mother's listening. – Michael McKellar Someone is counting on you to do your job so they can do theirs. – Pat Welsh You have two names on your uniform. Your family’s and the community you serve. Don’t bring shame to either one. – William Ferline Be careful what you say at work, you never know who your next boss will be. – Marv Alex Trust your gut. If someone or something doesn’t feel right, trust your gut. – Ashley Brashear Make a new friend every day. – John Paul Always assume no one has done their job; do it again, it could possibly save your life. – David Allen Never forget that no matter how high you go in the police department you will never stand higher than the shoulders of those people below you. – Ed Devennish Nothing good happens after midnight. - Jimmy Andrews
