Honoring Law Enforcement
Too often we go about our lives without showing proper appreciation for those that keep us safe – the men and women of law enforcement. Last Friday, May 6th, the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Memorial held their annual gathering in front of the State Capitol, which allowed me to reflect on the bravery of those who risk their lives everyday to keep us safe. The ceremony was particularly prescient in the aftermath of Fond du Lac Police Officer Craig Birkholz’s death in the line of duty earlier this year.
This morning, I was able to participate in the Sauk County Law Enforcement Officers Association’s Respect for Law Ceremony. I was honored to be able to speak and show my support for law enforcement not only in Sauk County, but across the state.
Please take some time today to remember the sacrifices made by these brave men and women who run toward danger so that the rest of us can be safe.
