In a time where law enforcement officers are committed to ensuring safety and combating crime around the clock, a heartfelt message from a policeman has caught the attention of netizens.
A video circulating on the popular Facebook page, ‘Daily Traffic Report’, showcases a police officer on patrol duty in a residential area.
Using a megaphone, he approached a row of parked cars and addressed the bystanders in a candid manner.
“Dear abang-abang Honda,” began the officer, addressing the drivers, “please do not go out racing. I am tired. Please remember your loved ones while on the road. Bye.”
This slightly unconventional but profoundly touching approach not only sheds light on the emotional toll of policing but also emphasizes the shared humanity between the police and the public.
