Being a police officer in Texas, or anywhere, is one of the hardest jobs to undertake. They have to deal with people that feel they are above the law on a daily basis. If an officer does even the slightest thing wrong, watch groups start throwing around criticisms with very little context. It can be a job where "f#*@ you" is heard more than "thank you." It's a tough job full of armchair quarterbacks yelling about their performance on a daily basis. That's why there are some things that Texas police do not want you to know about them.

If we knew everything about it or everything they have to deal with, we'd understand how hard and difficult an officer's job is.

Tricks of the Trade

So below is 14 Things Texas Police Do Not Want You to Know about what they do to get the truth of a situation.
