A police officer (cop) is sworn to defend and
protect people. They can arrest and detain individuals who are accused of
breaking the law. They ensure drivers follow traffic laws, respond to
emergencies, and patrol areas where crime may occur. They often
document any action they took in detailed reports.
Firefighters typically do the following: Drive
firetrucks and other emergency vehicles. Put out fires using water hoses,
fire extinguishers, and water pumps. Find and rescue victims in burning
buildings or in other emergency situations.
The Coast Guard manages six major
