During National Police Week, the Elmore County Commission would like to thank numerous law enforcement officers that work hard to keep our communities safe and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. See excerpt below from the American Presidency Project, Proclamation 10397—Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, 2022.
“For generations, courageous men and women of our Nation’s law enforcement community have dedicated their lives to protecting us in big cities, small towns, and suburban neighborhoods across America. Each morning, police officers pin on their shield and walk out the door to go to work, hoping they will come home safely. Last year, a record number of law enforcement officers died in the line of duty. On Peace Officers Memorial Day and during Police Week, we express our gratitude for these selfless public servants who put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe and honor those who lost their lives in the line of duty.”
