Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

Whether it’s monitoring huge sporting events or helping someone with a car accident, law enforcement officers are a critical part of our lives.

They keep our communities safe and have the best interest of citizens and the law.

In support of their services, citizens are encouraged to do their part in thanking officers on this day.

The day also raises awareness on the importance of understanding the difficult tasks officers are involved in daily. Biloxi PD Events Coordinator/ Public Information Grandver Everett said, “We see where there are incidents that involve officer involved shootings or law enforcement officers giving the ultimate sacrifice with their life. Ya know, made that decision to serve and we’re coming here every day to serve and when people are in need of help, we’re there for them.”

Thank you to those who protect and serve, putting their lives on the line to keep us safe.
