      Hi Carole,
      A Peace officer is the technical term of a person who is an employee of the government who has been hired to protect the community, and ensure people’s safety – this would include: police officers, Military personnel, border guards etc. I was a little confused by this, so I looked it up to ensure the correct term was being used.

      Hope this helps,
      Nolan
