U.S. Attorney Sayler A. Fleming Recognizes Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Eastern District of Missouri

Each year, the United States Attorney’s Office of the Eastern District of Missouri observes Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (LEAD) and this year is no different. On January 9, 2021, the staff will continue celebrating and honoring our brave men and women who work tirelessly to keep our communities safe. 

Across the nation, these men and women – representing approximately 17,985 law enforcement agencies -- perform demanding and thankless work at the local, state, tribal and federal levels. Many often respond to and witness some of the most tragic events in our communities such as murder, suicide and domestic violence.

“On behalf of myself and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri, I want to say ‘thank you’ to all of the men and women in uniform. Please know that we appreciate the sacrifices you make for all of us each and every day you leave your loved ones to selflessly and tirelessly protect our communities,” said Sayler A. Fleming, U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District of Missouri. “What you do matters, and it should never go unnoticed. Today and always, you have our unwavering support and respect.”

This office encourages everyone to show support for those who serve and protect. We look forward to continuing our partnership together, in 2021 and beyond, to promote justice and public safety.
