May 15th is National Peace Officers Memorial Day

KSCB News - May 12, 2016 12:02 pm

In 1962 President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day, and the calendar week in which May 15th falls in as National Police Week. According to a proclamation by George W. Bush in 2002, “Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week pay tribute to the local, State and Federal law enforcement officers who serve and protect us with courage and dedication.” We appreciate the men, women and K-9s of our local law enforcement agencies daily, but this week is a time to show them just how much they are truly appreciated. As Barbara Boxer states, “Law enforcement officers are never off duty. They are dedicated public servants who are sworn to protect public safety at any time and place that the peace is threatened. They need all the help they can get.” They spend countless late nights, early mornings and long hours away from their loved ones so they can protect the citizens of Seward County. Even if we do not say it every day we are thankful for all you do and the time you dedicate to your coworkers and community members. Not only is this a time to be appreciative of our officers but also time to thank their families. Our officers and their families make scarifies every day, there are many missed birthdays, holidays, kids events and family dinners. Just know at the end of the day whether you are told it or not you are appreciated and loved more than you know. John F. Kennedy said it best, “We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”Thank you for everything you do day in and day out,
