President Joe Biden issued a proclamation for Peace Officers Memorial Day today.

The president stated, “On Peace Officers Memorial Day and during Police Week, we celebrate the remarkable courage of our law enforcement community and honor the fallen heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect their fellow Americans.“

He continued, “Every day when law enforcement officers pin on their badges, they make an extraordinary commitment to the American people: to rush toward danger regardless of the risk and to faithfully stand up for the rule of law.  Across our neighborhoods, towns, and cities, they put themselves in harm’s way, hoping to return home safely to their families.“

The president added, “No memorial can ever fill the void left in the hearts of those who have lost a loved one in the line of duty.  But their sacrifices in full service to their communities and to our Nation will never be forgotten.  We will continue to honor their memories with actions that help keep our law enforcement officers and communities safe from harm.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his law enforcement advisors as the administration sets rules, regulations, and reforms.
  • For God’s protection over peace officers around the nation as they respond to risks and threats to public safety.
  • For the Lord’s will to be accomplished in this nation.
