Cris Romero 🏳️‍🌈🇲🇽  Seattle, WA

So much love for my brothers and sisters of the Seattle Police Department. They undergo a substantial amount of stress on a daily basis from responding to high priority calls, dealing with city politics, getting called every single name in the book by the general public, and so much more. But my goodness, they are true heroes. Heroes that have been and always will be my inspiration & motivation.
I rode with an officer from Seattle’s West (downtown) Precinct. Policing in Seattle certainly is substantially different compared to policing in other cities. It’s no secret that there’s a lot happening in Seattle. One minute you could be dealing with something subtle such as an unwanted subject at a business or a traffic stop (although traffic stops could go from good to bad real quick) but the next minute you could be dealing with an armed robbery, a shooting, a stabbing or something of that severity.
I also learned that even after several and long back-to-back calls for service, officers will barely, BARELY, lemme emphasize one more time for the folks in the back, BBAARREELLYY have time for breaks (and when they do take breaks, people will always moan and complain to them, “ALL YOU GUYS EVER DO IS TAKE BREAKS”). The officer and I went inside a teriyaki restaurant in Pioneer Square, ordered delicious food, and as soon as the server placed our food on the table, a high priority call came out for a State Trooper a few blocks from us requesting immediate assistance for a fight in progress. We ran out of the restaurant leaving our food and some personal belongings behind to assist the Trooper. I give even more props to these officers for constantly navigating in one of the country’s most complex geography and typography.
Police officers in America’s 15th largest city, according to information released by the U.S Census data, serve their community with Service, Pride, and Dedication.
SPD, you are my heroes and know that you will have my everlasting support. Love y’all! 💙❤️ ...

HAPPY PRIDE! What a great weekend with my brother and cuñada! 🌈 Too funny that my straight non-single brother gets hit on by guys and me being the gay single guy doesn’t get hit on by a single guy. Can somebody explain how that works?! 😂 #Seattle #Gay #Pride #LGBT #SeattleLGBT #SeattlePride

One of the attendees gave me his phone to snap a picture of him with Chief Carmen Best & Ofc. Smith. I took the photos as asked but I also took a selfie. It made them laugh (so much it even looks like Chief Best was laughing hysterically). This photo brings so much warmth and happiness to my heart that I even catch myself going back every so often in times of stress only because it serves me as a reminder of the short blissful moments life has to offer. Laughter is the best medicine. #SeattlePolice #Love

Let us not forget the honorary occasion in which I met the increíble Professor Macklemore!
