NEWS FROM THE COMMUNICATIONS DESK
Day after day, police officers in every corner of America suit up, put on the badge, and carry out their sworn duty to protect and serve. And with quiet courage, they help fulfill the demanding yet vital task of shielding our people from harm. It is work that deserves our deepest respect -- because when darkness and danger would threaten the peace, our police officers are there to step in, ready to lay down their lives to protect our own. Let us take this time to honor law enforcement.
