Take a moment today to say thank you and show your support to an officer.

Today is , a day to show our nation's law enforcement how grateful we are for their service and sacrifices.

Our most heartfelt thanks and a big ole hug of love and gratitude to the men and women in blue who vow to serve and protect our communities. Thanks to the sheriffs, state police, local police, K-9 Units, special units, divisions, SWAT, EVERYONE!  God bless you and your families.

HOW TO OBSERVE

There are several ways to show your support.  Send a note of thanks to your local, county or state police agency.  Wear blue, turn your social media channels blue or shine a blue porch light to show your support. Find more ideas at Concerns of Police Survivors and share your support using #NationalLawEnforcementAppreciationDay to share on social media.  (National Day Calendar)
