    Jan. 10, 2015  My after ATTENDING comments

    It was a most unusual day (I had never rallied before)

    CAMARADERIE prevailed,   a sense of community, the COPS came and stayed, we were defined by the the company we were keeping and the signs that we carried. We were endorsed  and encouraged  by the HONKING OF HORNS, THE THUMBS UP  AND COMMENTS from  like minded law abiding  American citizens, We were all PROUD to be representing a our local community in a rally to support of law enforcement

    A Sequim Gazette reporter and photographer did show up at the rally.

    Of course I made a comment to them, it’s my personal sacrifice.

    I can hardly wait to see what the Sequim Gazette puts in print?

    Remember what the local reporters did with my “ECOLOGY SUCKS” comment?

    Friday Jan. 9, 2015 marked National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

    Posted: Jan 09, 2015 6:44 PM PST Updated: Jan 09, 2015 9:07 PM PST

    SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) – You may have noticed a lot of blue around Heartland cities on Friday, Jan. 9.

    Many joined in a nationwide effort to show support for law enforcement.

    Friday marks Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, or L-E-A-D.

    Americans were encouraged to show their support for police officers, and many took up that call in Scott County.

    Deputies were treated to breakfast and lunch by local businesses and schools.

    Recent findings show 780,000 Americans pin on a badge every day and go out to serve and protect.

    On average, between around 100 and 200 officers die in the line of duty each year.

    With recent months of polarizing events, pitting some citizens against police, law enforcement officials say this day of appreciation means a lot.

    “It was good. I mean a lot of times when people deal with us they don’t see the positive side of law enforcement sometimes,” said Senior Deputy Matt Scroggins with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office. “So it’s nice to know that people realize we’re not all bad guys.”

    Students also wrote thank you cards to officers which now hang at the sheriff’s office.

    01/09/15 – Greater Kansas City AFL-CIO …. For more information on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, please click here to watch the public service …

    The National Fraternal Order of Police has partnered with C.O.P.S. and law enforcement associations across America on a National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day scheduled for

    January 9th, 2015. Please share this information with members in your states.

    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.

    Can you imagine going to work each day and wondering if you’ll survive your shift and see your family that night? Most people can’t. But in law enforcement, this is a fact of life. Each day 780,000 police officers across our country put a badge on and go to work knowing they may face extremely dangerous situations. Yet, they go to work anyway. Being a law enforcement officer is not just a job, it is a calling. The pay is low, the hours can be terrible, and there is sometimes little appreciation for what you do. Yet, they do it anyway.

    What the public doesn’t see is the lengths law enforcement takes to keep our communities safe. On average, between 105 and 203 officers die in the line of duty each year, 50,000 officers are assaulted in the line of duty each year, 14,000 officers are injured in the line of duty each year, and over 300 officers commit suicide each year. There is no other profession in the world, except possibly the military, where you will find these kinds of statistics.

    Being a law enforcement officer truly is an impossible job. You must be professional, courteous, caring and yet be ready to protect the public at all times. You must be prepared to make life and death decisions at a moment’s notice. You take an amazing amount of abuse at times, but have to view this abuse as just “part of the job.” You do not have the liberty to express your emotions during many situations.

    Law enforcement officers play such an integral part in our society; without them, chaos would reign. Have you ever thought about what you would do if you were in trouble – a car accident, a home invasion, an assault – and you did not have someone to call for help? No matter how much abuse law enforcement takes, they continue to do their job, and do it well. They are the guardians of our way of life and they deserve our support.

    On January 9th, we call our nation’s citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Those citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given, are encouraged take time on Friday, January 9th to show their support. Support can be shown in a number of ways:

    • Change your profile picture on social media to the .jpg image at the beginning of this proposal
    • See a police officer? Thank a police officer
    • Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement
    • Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency
    • Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media
    • Ask children in your community 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 law enforcement’s webpage or social media pages
