Looking for a photograph on the web. It needs to be of a police office
in uniform running more or less towards the camera. It doesn't matter
if it's a real police officer or a scene from TV or a movie. The
officer needs to be in good lighting, at least 400 pixels high,
completely in view from the knees up at minimum, and the photo needs
to be of high quality.

This is needed by no later than 4pm PST on Friday 8/4. Thanks.

I will give you some pictures, tell me if these are any good.

I am sorry I cannot find a better picture. Please let me know if any
of these are of good enough quality.

The first and second pictures are at a bit too much of an angle and
are too low of quality. The third picture is unfortunately not high
enough definition, but it is exactly the pose I was looking for.

I thought this would be relatively easy to find, don't know why it is
so tough, I spent several hours myself looking before giving up. Thank
you for your efforts.

None of those are a perfect match of what I had in mind, but I know I
gave limited time for this question, and these are way closer than
anything I was able to find myself. Thanks much for your help.

I am tempted to take my digital camera out and steal some stuff, but
it might not be worth it.

As it is, I haven't found anything that matches your needs in my usual places.
