Following the terrorist attacks in Brussels, the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) National President Nathan Catura issued the following statement:

"Terrorism has been an international scourge and has struck every corner of our globe. Only through the combined transnational efforts of law enforcement agencies can these murders be deterred and our enemies defeated.

It is now more important than ever for Congress to fully support America's front line protection: our law enforcement officers. They deserve more than legislation by sound bite and must have full backing when it comes to their budget, mission and authorities.

We commend the Belgian law enforcement officers who bravely responded to the attacks and applaud their efforts to find and thwart further tragedy. We will keep them and all victims of terror in our thoughts and prayers."
