Branson Rolling Out Blue Carpet for Men and Women Behind the Badge

June 03, 2015  | 

The City of Branson, Mo., is honoring current and past law enforcement members with a week-long celebration beginning Sat., June 13. Law Enforcement Recognition Week will pay tribute to active and retired law enforcement from across the country.

Ron Replogle, a 31-year career veteran with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, is coordinating Law Enforcement Recognition week.

"Being a law enforcement officer can be a thankless job," said Ron Replogle, Chairman, Law Enforcement Recognition Week. "It is both appropriate and necessary for us to pause, recognize and honor our police officers for the work they do each day to keep us safe. This is my opportunity to give back and honor the law enforcement community that served and supported me throughout my career."

Law Enforcement Recognition week kicks off June 13 with Billy Dean & Steel Horses at Starlite Theatre. Events held throughout the week will include an ice cream social, golf tournament, shooting competition, antique and DARE car shows, motorcycle rodeo, recruiting expo, and training.

"The purpose is to let these men and women, who protect and serve us daily, know we appreciate them and the job they do," said Jeff Seifried, President/CEO Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau. "These local heroes put their lives on the line to protect us. Branson will become the leader in law enforcement recognition. We want to let them and their families know how much their service means to our community and communities all across the country."
