Rhode Island State Police

"The Promise"

Dedicated To:
To all of those who risk their life day after day.

Protect, honor, serve, and save--
To you and me they make this vow
To keep us safe the best they know how.

Day by day they walk the beat
Down a few blocks,
Down a few streets
Down a darkened alley in the dead of the night
Ready, waiting, and willing to fight.

Knowing any moment could be their last
For whatever's to come will surely come fast
But they made a promise,
They made a vow
To keep us safe the best they know how.
