“God made police so firefighters would have heroes”

"God made police/cops so firefighters would have heroes” is a saying that has been printed on a popular T-shirt. The saying has been cited in print since at least 2005.

The T-shirt is often worn when the police play the firefighters in charity sporting events.

But she couldn’t help but stir up a little trouble when it came to picking out a T-shirt to wear to Sunday’s sixth annual charity softball game between Lexington police and fire departments.

“God made police so firemen would have heroes,” read the officer’s specially made T-shirt.
