United States Attorney’s Office Recognizes National Police Week

Calls on All Marylanders to “Thank a Police Officer for Serving with Valor and Integrity”

Baltimore, Maryland – In connection with National Police Week – the week that includes Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15 – the United States Attorney’s Office today encouraged all Marylanders to take a moment to remember officers who have been killed or wounded in the line of duty and to express their appreciation to the men and women who work every day to protect public safety.

“Police agencies get plenty of attention when things go wrong, but we too rarely take the opportunity to thank law enforcement officers who are on duty every morning, afternoon and evening, every day of the year,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “We are very grateful for the service of the many outstanding officers in our local, state and federal law enforcement agencies who are working together to reduce crime in Maryland. This week, every citizen should take the opportunity to thank a police officer for serving with valor and integrity.”
