What is 'The Thin Gold Line'?

'The Thin Gold Line' is a site designed for those professionals that have dedicated their lives, hearts, and souls to being on the other end of a phone or radio when society needs them most. 

 They are the voice that calms the frightened mother who's baby is not breathing. They are the voice that consoles a spouse when the love of their life has passed away. They are there when you hear a bump in the night and something "just isn't right". They are the voice that brings light to some of our darkest times. 


They are often forgotten and often unrecognized for the work they do.They do not do the job for the great pay or convenient work hours, but because they want to make the world a little bit safer for all of us.


  1. Hi... I was wondering where you got the poster looking definition of the Thin Gold Line? My director is interested in getting posters for our center.


    1. Hello there Janice,

      A friend of mine had posted it on their facebook. I fell in love with it and decided to use it. I googled the definition and found the image, but it appears that the website it was linked to is no longer available. Sorry I don't have better information for you!

      If you don't mind me asking, what agency do you work for?

      Take care,


  2. Amber,
    Can we use this saying for our own agency?
    I haven't found anywhere that has it so we can quote it to give someone credit.

    Thank You,


  3. Jocelyn,

    Use away! I have been unable to locate the exact source as well. We are a family, no matter where we are located!

    What agency are you with?

    Take care,
