Do you have more of a favorable opinion of police officers in general, or a less favorable opinion?
In my youth I volunteered for the local police department. It's a difficult and thankless job.
All the glory of customer service with the added benefit that your life and health are at risk.
It's the handful that become cops to get back at their high school bully that give the rest a bad name. Most cops just want to serve their community as evidenced by the terrible pay and long hours.
In theory more trusting, in person I'm not sure I get paranoid around them
