Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Recognized Today

January 09, 2015  | 

On January 9th, 2015, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is joining other law enforcement organizations in support of law enforcement officers nationwide to celebrate Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.). In light of the recent negativity directed toward the law enforcement community, NLEOMF is encouraging citizens to show law enforcement officers that they recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service to all.

Law Enforcement Organizations that are partnering together include: Concerns of Police Survivors, FBI National Academy Associates, Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, Fraternal Order of Police, International Conference of Police Chaplains, International Union of Police Associations, National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives, National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement, National Police Wives, National Sheriffs’ Association, National Trooper’s Coalition, New Jersey State PBA, Officer Down Memorial Page, Law Enforcement United, Police Unity Tour, United States Air Force Security Forces, and Wives Behind the Badge.

Citizens who appreciate law enforcement are encouraged to show their support. Here are a few ways the public can show their support for law enforcement on January 9th:

  • Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement
  • Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency
  • Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media
  • Ask children in your community to write letters in support of law enforcement
  • Participate in Project Blue Light. Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement.
  • Most importantly, if you see a police officer, thank a police officer.

“The Memorial Fund is proud and honored to be a part of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day,” said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman & CEO of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. “This day presents an opportunity for all American citizens to show their appreciation and respect for law enforcement heroes.”

The Memorial Fund maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC, which contains the names of 20,267 officers who have died in the line of duty throughout U.S. history.
