Editorial Comment - Law Enforcement Officers Deserve 365 Days Of Recognition

 

Since President John F. Kennedy established a day to honor law enforcement officers in 1962, May 15th of every year has been set aside to honor police officers. Today I join others throughout America with an expression of respect and gratitude to the men and women who serve in law enforcement.

Door and Kewaunee Counties are fortunate to have officers who make our highways safer, our schools more secure and our communities better places to live. Law enforcement officers serve us well and sacrifice much.

Since 1791 more than 19,000 federal, state and local officers have given their lives in law enforcement service. These men and women placed the safety and security of others above their own. 

Local law enforcement officers face uncertain danger daily. At the start of every shift an officer’s family must worry about what a loved one may face that day. 

We have a collective obligation to express gratitude, offer respect and conduct our own behavior with responsible deference to those who serve in law enforcement positions.

Please take this special week of recognition to express your personal appreciation to the officers serving in our schools, on our streets and highways, online and throughout our communities.

Police officers deserve this special day of recognition and a lot more respect from all of us 365 days a year.

That’s my opinion. I’d like to hear yours.
