Each year at this time, we pay tribute to all the law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their communities and country. In 2018, 150 law enforcement officers nationally lost their lives in the line of duty. National Police Week also stands as a tribute to all those who are currently serving in their communities.
