Laying Down (with) the Law

Editor: 

To protect and to serve: the oath of law enforcement officers everywhere. For little recognition and less money, they dedicate themselves to our defense. Send us your stories with law enforcement officers of any type as the main characters—police officers, sheriffs and their deputies, FBI and DEA agents, park rangers, RCMP—and show us what they’ve got.

Of course, those LEOs are solving crimes and stopping the bad guys before they can wreak (too much) havoc. So while these intrepid officers fall in love—with each other, with suspects, with victims . . . with the bad guy?—they should also be doing what they do so well: serving, protecting, and solving mysteries.
