National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day


After a tumultuous year earlier that marked an officer-involved shooting that turned into a major unrest event in Ferguson, MO, 2015 became the first year of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. With a push led by Concerns of Police Survivors, or C.O.P.S., multiple non-profit organizations and police support groups banded together to make a point of show gratitude for the service and sacrifice made every day by law enforcement officers in the U.S. More importantly, however, the day is intended for regular citizens to be involved, to meet their law enforcement officers in their community, and have an opportunity to show gratitude for the officers’ civic service.
