Side A
Inscription.  (Side A)

I have taken an oath
To serve and protect my fellow man
Guide me safely in my duties
To do the very best I can

Give me the ability
To stop those things that are wrong
To bring comfort and safety by restoring it to
Those to whom it belongs

And dear Lord if I am called upon
To give the ultimate sacrifice for the badge
I proudly wear upon my chest
Let it be said

"I served with dignity, honor, and love
And did my very best.' Amen.
