January 9th is National Thank A Police Officer day.

Today we'd like to thank all the families, brothers & sisters in blue, and friends of the 140 officers that died in the line of duty in 2016.

We'd like to thank all the officers currently on duty today and the coming days who will be working to keep all of their communities safe.

And finally, we'd like to thank all the individuals who are stepping up to take the watch in this unseen day and age of media arm chair quarterbacking and relentless political attacks on wages, benefits, and retirement.
