Gov. Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 9, 2017 to be Law Enforcement Appreciation Day to recognize the service and sacrifice of all law enforcement. Kinda a big deal.
Read the governor's Law Enforcement Appreciation Day proclamation here.
“Every day and night, law enforcement officers put their lives on the line to protect and serve communities across our state,” said Gov. Dayton in his press release. “Today, we recognize the service and sacrifice of those brave men and women, and their families. Minnesota is a safer, stronger, better state thanks to their unwavering service.”
To all the law enforcement officials in Minnesota: beat cops, investigators, clerks and support staff, community service officers, dispatchers, captains, head honchos, and everyone in between, the League would like to second that. Thank you for the work—and all the heart—you put into keeping cities safe every day and leading innovation in the field.
Here are just a few highlights of Minnesota law enforcement leading the way:
Working Together—Duluth’s ‘Embedded Social Worker’ Program
Making Minnesota Cities Home for Immigrants
The Future of Policing
Credentialing of the Professional Police Chief
It's not easy, but it's important work, and might we add, you look GREAT in blue (and black, and plain clothes ...).
