Who has more integrity: Firemen or Police Officers?
Which department do you believe is more honest and true to their service - without corruption, bias or scandal obstructing their mission?
Its gotta be Firemen. Policemen are subjected to much higher levels of temptation than their counterparts are. How often are Firemen bribed? Its probably rarely, if at all.
That's a tough question, but CWanamaker has a point. My husband is in law enforcement and he is subject to credit checks and scrutiny. I don't know what different agencies do, but it's meant to ensure they aren't doing anything too sneaky I think. It would be nice if they could be paid what they are worth and then they wouldn't need those other sources of "income".
I must say that firefighters are it. The community has a higher appreciation for them and what they do because of their life-saving purpose. Police officers, on the other hand, spend a lot of their time performing traffic stops and citing people in what many deem as harrassment and revenue-generation actions, which is aggravating to many.
In my personal opinion I think firefighters are more honest and true.
Which town,city or country are we talking about? I had to ask!
I think the police officer faces more opportunity on which his/her integrity is on the line...more opportunities for bribery, theft, misrepresenting the facts, etc. For me, firemen are about courage in that they face the dangers associated with fire and saving lives. WB

I know this is going to be controversial, but I'm deeply concerned about racism in this country. There seems to be many more shootings of unarmed black men by white police in the last few months. This latest shooting in Ferguson Missouri has me wondering, are these pent-up tensions...

Have you noticed police officers speeding, running red lights, failing to use turn signals...... tail gating, and generally breaking traffic laws? In my own experience I see this nearly every time I drive through town. Why do so many cops disregard the simple traffic laws that we must follow or be...
