Monday, January 9th was National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (LEAD). National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is a moment to recognize difficult and rewarding careers and appreciate the public service they provide. The Concern of Police Survivors (COPS) is one of the leading organizations organizing this opportunity, and has made sure that the difficult career paths chosen by law enforcement officers are recognized by those who protect and uphold the law. It says it needs to be shown to law enforcement officers.
According to the National Day Calendar, National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day was created in 2015 to bring together several organizations to thank police officers across the country for all the sacrifices they make every day for their communities. . The National Day Calendar describes the day as such.
From local, state, and federal, their duty is a devoted order. Work is often unrewarding and takes long periods of time away from the family. Little do they know what their days have in store for them. Law enforcement is often the only paid emergency resource a community has. We often work with other local, state, and federal organizations to make our communities safer.
