“It is most fitting that all Americans pay tribute to police officers and that we join with them and the families of their fallen comrades in honoring the memory of those who have lost their lives while protecting their fellow citizens and communities.” – Ronald Reagan, 1982, National Peace Officer’s Memorial Day #PeaceOfficersMemorialDay
President Donald J. Trump invited the family of a courageous police officer killed in the line of duty to the stage in honor of #PeaceOfficersMemorialDay.
Not enough can be said for the men and women who risk their lives on a daily basis to protect the citizens of this nation. Today we thank and honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. #peaceofficersmemorialday#thinblueline
Supervising DA Inv. Matt Remmers attended the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service held in Washington D.C. on May 15. “It was an honor to represent the DA’s Office at the memorial that recognized the 199 fallen officers and their families who made the ultimate sacrifice by giving their lives last year,” Remmers said. While there, Remmers met 9-year-old Tyler Carach, also known as “The Donut Boy”. Tyler and his mother have visited nearly 30 states providing more than 50,000 free doughnuts to thank law enforcement officers for their service.
We came together yesterday during the 36th National #PeaceOfficersMemorialDay Service to recognize the sacrifice and comfort the families of members of our law enforcement community who lost their lives in the line of duty. The men and women we remembered came from all across America and served at every level of law enforcement. President Donald Trump knows that to make America safe again, we must also restore the tradition of respect and honor that is owed to every member of the law enforcement community in America.
