Police Week 2020.
This time of year, more than 40,000 law enforcement officers from around the country make their way to our nations capital to pay their respects to those that made the ultimate sacrifice. A time of reflection, remembrance, and celebration of the men and woman we call family.
I had hoped to make that journey once again in order to pay my respects to the 146 law enforcement officers lost last year, including 7 from Georgia, and our own Nicolas Blane Dixon.
While the events of Police Week may have been cancelled this year, it doesn't stop us from remembering the lives lost and the 24, 223 names engraved on the wall at the memorial in Washington D.C. Take a minute this week to say thank you and say a prayer for our law enforcement officers and their families. We love the communities we serve and where we live. We don the uniform everyday so that we may serve, protect, and watch over you. We don't do it for the accolades, the pay, or the recognition. We do it because we believe in the greater good. We do it because we believe we make a difference. To those lost; your legacy, your name, will live on and we thank you for your sacrifice. Much love and appreciation to my blue family. Stay safe. -Kris "When a police officer is killed, it's not an agency that loses an officer, it's an entire nation." -Chris Cosgriff, ODMP Founder
