Law Enforcement’s Voice Gets Louder: Presenting #PASS (Protect And Serve Stories)
By Patrick Clancy, Vice President of Law Enforcement at LoJack
As LoJack’s Vice President of Law Enforcement, I’ve spent three decades working closely with officers and departments across the country, doing everything possible to help law enforcement find and recover stolen vehicles, which often leads to the arrest of criminals who put communities at risk. Through this and my past experience as a sergeant for the Medfield, Massachusetts, Police Department, I’ve also borne witness as many members of law enforcement have gone above and beyond the call of duty to protect and serve civilians. These actions – which too often do not make news headlines – deserve to be recognized and praised. This blog is “the voice for law enforcement,” and I’m a firm believer that such a voice should be heard loud and proud across the nation. For this reason, I wanted to let readers know of an important initiative that aligns with this site’s mission in supporting law enforcement: #PASS. Protect And Serve Stories Identified by an acronym for “Protect And Serve Stories,” #PASS is a campaign designed to recognize
members of law enforcement whose thoughtful good deeds, both small and large, are impacting and improving the communities they serve and protect. These acts of kindness performed by officers shared on my Twitter feed, @PWClancy, and further supported on LoJack’s social channels (including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
Through #PASS, I spotlight the many simple and selfless deeds that members of law enforcement perform on a daily basis across the country. This includes a hat tip to the Brooklyn police who rescued kittens trapped in an abandoned suitcase; the Cleveland officers who played basketball with students to improve community relations; and so many more. These are the positive stories we hope receive the recognition they deserve.
Join the Effort Getting involved with #PASS is simple – you can do it with just a few taps on a smartphone. To begin, if you’re on Twitter, please follow me at @PWClancy. This is where I recognize some of the many good deeds performed every day by officers across the country. Like what you see? Give some heartwarming, positive law enforcement stories a like or re-tweet to share on your own channel.
