Truly heroic work does, I hope, get the recognition it deserves: the officer who runs into a burning building to save someone, the officer who risks his or her life to save that of a civilian in a hostage situation, but the work of police officers is full of other types of good work every day: helping the good people in neighborhoods with the problems they have.
