ATLANTA – Today, January 9, 2020 is Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.  U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak is asking citizens to join him in saluting law enforcement officers in the Northern District of Georgia. 

“Law enforcement officers are everyday heroes and part of our community.  Fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, and our neighbors,” said U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak.  “They go to work every day with a passion to serve others and to protect us.  Few can truly appreciate the rigors of working in law enforcement.  In addition, many of them serve the communities in which they grew up because they love where they are from, and see it as an honor and duty to give back. They are one of us.  Please join us in thanking them for their dedication, and service.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia is also releasing our second “Everyday Heroes are One of Us” Public Service Announcement featuring Lt. Robert Howell of the Henry County, Georgia, Sheriff’s Office.  The PSA is posted on our social media platforms and has been submitted to local media outlets. 

The PSA is available on our Facebook page:
