This week Teamsters Local 320 recognizes and congratulates all peace officers and especially members of the Minnesota Teamsters Law Enforcement League (MNTLEL).
From the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund:
In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
The sworn men and women of law enforcement are some of the most courageous and determined individuals on the planet. They save lives, protect our communities, and ensure our safety. From time to time we take these brave men and women for granted—which is always wrong, but happens nonetheless.
So for Police Week let’s make a solid commitment to honor our sworn law enforcement officers for the exceptional work they do for all of us every single day!
