National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

Today we salute our law enforcement! We greatly appreciate their hard work to keep our communities safe!

On Jan. 9, 2017, partnering organizations in support of law enforcement officers nationwide will promote National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.). In light of recent negativity directed toward law enforcement nationally, there is a need to show law enforcement officers that our citizens recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service to us all.

Here are a few ways you can show your support on Jan. 9:

  • Change your profile picture on social media to the .jpg image provided at www.facebook.com/nationalcops.
  • Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement.
  • Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency.
  • Share a story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media.
  • Ask children in your community to write letters in support of law enforcement.
  • Participate in Project Blue Light – Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement.
  • Organize an event or a rally in support of your law enforcement officers.
  • Advertise your support through local media outlets/billboards.
  • Post the public service announcement supplied by C.O.P.S. to your organization’s webpage or social media pages.

Most importantly, if you see a police officer, thank a police officer.
