I got a call from an old friend today. His name is Todd Brackett and, as you may already know, he is the sheriff of Lincoln County. When Todd calls, it's always for a good reason. This time was no exception. He wanted to let me know that the Maine Sheriffs’ Association and the Maine Chiefs of Police Association have two great opportunities to see a movie that will be both informative and moving. It's called, "Heroes Behind the Badge."

If you know anyone who is a police officer, this movie is sure to give you added respect for what they go through every day. The mental anguish of knowing their lives are on the line every day is one of many things that separate people like most of us from them.

This movie will be screened on Saturday night at 7 at the Faith Evangelical Free Church on Kennedy Memorial Drive in Waterville (Formerly Hoyt's Cinema). On Friday, the 29th, it will show at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center on Stroudwater Street, also at 7. The cost is $12 online for both the Waterville and Westbrook shows, and $15 at the door. Proceeds benefit the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, the Maine Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Augusta, and Camp POSTCARD for underprivileged children.

Now, here's a preview...
