Prescott Valley Police and Central Yavapai Fire personnel serve, rather than just protect the public
Special to the Tribune

A peace officer is entrusted with the authority and duty to protect and serve the public. The enforcement of laws and education of the public are basic duties charged to the men and women in law enforcement to protect the public and keep order. A firefighter, likewise, fights fires, provides advanced medical assistance and works daily to protect the public regardless of the conditions or time of year.

The heart of the police officer and firefighter is one of service. A desire to serve the public provides the foundation to work in professions such as public safety, which are paramount to the success of a community.

On Christmas morning, members of the Prescott Valley Police and Central Yavapai Fire had the privilege of serving the public in a different way. They teamed up with St. Luke's Episcopal Church to bring meals to those in need of assistance. Firefighters and police officers alike participated and delivered about 32 meals to local people.

Public servants are members of the communities they serve. Playing their part in making it a better place along with a safer place is a duty as a community member and not just a provider of public safety. We all play a part in making our community better.

We also thank those members of the community who volunteer their time to help others.
