Remembering National Police Week

PolitiChicks.comEvery May, thousands gather in Washington, D.C. for National Police Week in order to honor those who serve us. The week serves to remember those who have fallen in the line of duty and support those who continue to serve. Events range from candlelight vigils to marches to education for kids. Officers from departments around the country and the world descend on our nation’s capital for a week of activities.

Now, more than ever, it’s important to pay tribute to our men and women who protect our communities on a daily basis. They put on their uniform, their badge and holster their pistol, even though their lives have been threatened. Each time they put on their uniform they are putting a target on their back. Literally.

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

I’m proud to say that I’m the daughter of a law enforcement officer. I’ve always been proud of the sacrifice my dad made for his community and on behalf of our family. The truth is, when someone is in law enforcement, his or her whole family is as well. Not only is a father risking their life but a wife could lose her husband and a child could lose his father.

During this week, I ask that you thank an officer for his or her commitment to you, your family and your community. If you have the time, please participate in the PolitiChicks Gratitude Campaign where we take cookies to the local police station. It’s one small “thank you” for a huge job well done.
