Attorney General Steve Marshall Calls on Alabamians to Observe
National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day: Take Time to Thank a Hero

(MONTGOMERY) — Attorney General Steve Marshall calls on Alabamians to join all Americans in observing National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, today, January 9, 2020.

“Each year, nearly one thousand Alabamians answer the call to serve and safeguard our communities as new law enforcement personnel,” said Attorney General Marshall. “These newly minted heroes join the ranks of many more men and women across our state who have sworn to literally lay down their lives each day for our safety. You don’t have to go far to find these heroes. They stand watch in our neighborhoods and guard our schools. They are the ones who rush headlong into danger and who too often pay the ultimate price. Alabama has seen far too many of its finest lost in the line of duty. Please take time to join me today in thanking a policeman, sheriff’s deputy or other emergency responder for their bravery and commitment to protect us.”
