This is National Police Week 2018

4,000 men and women are in law enforcement in King County, serving 39 cities, three Tribal Governments, the University of Washington, and almost 250,000 residents living in unincorporated communities. "We will forever honor the officers who have given their lives and we salute their service". We will never forget their courage. "Our officers deserve the respect of the communities and country they keep safe".

Council members and residents at the council meeting took the opportunity to share stories of how officers have positively impacted their lives - from handling home burglaries and patrolling local schools, to checking neighborhoods for open garage doors and acting as a role model to their children. The Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission worked together to establish a dedicated Emergency Alert System event code.




These officers are members of Law Enforcement United which is a 100 percent volunteer organization comprised of many Law Enforcement Officers from New Jersey and states as far away as Georgia. We must not take their devotion to duty for granted, and we must do everything in our power to ensure their physical and mental well-being. We are also following President Trump's Executive Orders to back the women and men in blue, to enhance law enforcement safety, and to reduce violent crime in America. "I recently had the great honor of adding two special deputies, who lost their lives in 1946 while searching for a crashed plane, to the King County Sheriff's Office Memorial Wall".

Note: In tribute to American law enforcement officers, as part of the historic crime bill that President Clinton signed into law in 1994, Public Law 103-322 designates Peace Officers Memorial Day (May 15) as one of only two days each year during which government agencies, businesses and residents are to fly their US flags at half-staff. Additionally, the police department enjoys a great working relationship with other law enforcement agencies working throughout Marshall County. On this Peace Officers Memorial Day, that is a fitting tribute to our fallen heroes and an effective expression of gratitude for those who continue to protect and serve.
