Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
Today is law enforcement appreciation day. The holiday was started by the F-B-I National Academy to thank officers across the country who take risks to protect their communities. Every day 780,000 police officers put on a badge nationwide, going to work in the most unknown extreme conditions and dangers. Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson says most people show great support for law enforcement officers. And, those officers do their jobs because they care about the world in which they live. The day encourages people to wear blue, post something on Facebook, or have children make a card or write a letter to local law enforcement agencies.
