Saturday, October 7

Today is the final day of National Community Policing Week. President Joe Biden issued a proclamation that stated, “All Americans want the same thing: neighborhoods free of violence and crime, for our loved ones to come home safely each day, and fair and impartial justice under the law.“

He continued, “During National Community Policing Week, we recommit to achieving those goals by strengthening the trust and partnership between law enforcement and communities across our Nation.“

 “The vast majority of police officers put their lives on the line every day to do the right thing. They pin on their shield and walk out the door toward danger, risking their lives to keep the rest of us safe,“ the president declared. “Let us recognize the heroism, selflessness, and courage of police officers across America. Let us honor the communities they serve for their undaunted efforts to advance equal justice, safety, and dignified treatment for all.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For law enforcement officers at the local, state, and federal levels as they give of themselves for the safety of others.
  • For wisdom for Director Hugh Clements as he heads the Office of Community-Oriented Policing Services in the Justice Department.
  • For the president and members of his administration as they recognize the sacrifice that police officers make each day.
