ACTING U. S. ATTORNEY RECOGNIZES POLICE WEEK
(STL.News) In honor of National Police Week, Acting United States Attorney Richard G. Frohling of the Eastern District of Wisconsin joins Attorney General Merrick B. Garland in recognizing the service and sacrifice of federal, state, local, and Tribal law enforcement. This year, the week is observed Sunday, May 9 through Saturday, May 15, 2021.
“This week is a time to honor our law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation,” said Attorney General Garland. “I am constantly inspired by the extraordinary courage and dedication with which members of law enforcement act each day, putting their lives on the line to make our communities safer. To members of law enforcement and your families: we know that not a single day, nor a single week, is enough to recognize your service and sacrifice. On behalf of the entire Department of Justice, you have our unwavering support and eternal gratitude.”
“Every day, members of law enforcement work tirelessly to protect our communities,” stated Acting U.S. Attorney Frohling. “Their task is difficult, dangerous, and too often thankless. My colleagues at the U.S. Attorney’s Office and I are grateful every day for the sacrifices of these brave and dedicated men and women, and we honor and remember those who have endured injury or lost their lives while seeking to keep all of us safe.”
In 1962, President Kennedy issued the first proclamation for Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week to remember and honor law enforcement officers for their service and sacrifices.
