I hate to burst your 'Peoria Police Hate Bubble'...but the Peoria Police Department is a very good and honest Police Department !
I can remember back 40-50 years ago when Peoria was just a bump in the road...Red Johnson was Chief of Police and Bob Webb was his Lt...Don Curry was the Constable...Judge Snure was the JP...the Police Department Headquarters was a small building that couldn't hold more than a dozen people at a time...
Those days are past but the honesty and professionalism of the Peoria P.D. is just a good now as it was then !
Show respect for them...they have 'earned' it !

Quite a memory for a guy 100 plus years old. J.W. Simms.

I guess am closer to a hundred years old than I would like to admit, but I have a few more good miles left in me.
I was one of several Arizona Highway Patrolmen assigned to patrol between Glendale and Wickenburg (US 60) a few years back and had personal knowledge of the law enforcement agencies in my area of influence.
I had a professional as well as personal association with many of the Town Marshals, Chiefs of Police, Patrolmen and other Public Safety Personnel including such a person as Chief Welch who was the Fire Chief and also the Owner of Mickey's Stage Coach Restaurant in Wittman Az. Chief Welch was the type of man that would put 12+ hours as a cook in his little restaurant and then respond to a serious traffic accident on US60 at 2am as a 'volunteer' and did a fantastic job.
These were the types of people that made Arizona great 40-50 years ago and the Peoria P.D. was full of such men that worked long hard hours for little pay...so before anyone bad mouths a worthy Police Department or men that serve the community...perhaps they should do a little research into the history of those organizations and show some respect for them...because they have 'earned' it

...just a quick note to 'Glad'...if you are associated with the Peoria Police Department or any Public Safety Organization I would suggest you learn to 'show respect for the dis-respectful'...name calling is beneath the dignity of a dedicated Public Servant whether it be a City Police Officer, Town Marshall, Deputy Sheriff or Highway Patrolman.
Times may have changed but quality people haven't...earn your reputation
