Police Need Hugs Too

November 8, 2011  By Michelle Coghlin

In October Michelle Coghlin asked her husband, Constable Philip Coghlin of the Stratford Police Service, to bring home his complete uniform from work. Her aim was to do a police photo shoot with their new born son Caleb. This picture is one of  the finished images from that shoot. Michelle noted the mood and symmetry reminded her of the daily grind of police work experienced by her husband and how it contrasted from his home life and down-time with their new son. She was inspired to include the tag line and posted it on her facebook page. She had so many fans of the picture the demand for copies grew to a point where she decided to make it available to everyone in the form of gift plaques… just in time for Christmas. Anyone wishing to obtain a copy can contact Michelle by email to
