January 9 is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Established six years ago, the day is meant to honor the men and women in blue who risk their own safety to protect us all.
“Over the past year, our nation’s law enforcement professionals have endured all kinds of unwarranted hostility and disrespect,” Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts said today. “Now more than ever, we owe them a debt of gratitude.”
In 2020, 307 officers died in the line of duty, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.
