Monday, January 9, 2017, is L.E.A.D. – National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. This is an all day nationwide demonstration of support for LEOs. Suggestions of support can include wearing blue, write “thank you” notes to your local precinct officers, participate in Project Blue Light by proudly displaying a blue light, etc. In light of recent negativity directed toward law enforcement nationally, there is a need, now more than ever, to show law enforcement officers that our citizens recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service to us all. Most importantly, if you see a law enforcement officer, thank a law enforcement officer!
