Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. On this day, we take time to express our gratitude, respect, and admiration for those who selflessly and bravely risk their lives to protect and serve our communities and every one of us.
Our Department is home to the greatest number of law enforcement officers in the federal government. Please join me in thanking our law enforcement colleagues for the noble work they perform in service to our nation. The families and loved ones of our law enforcement colleagues deserve our deep appreciation and respect as well. No one serves alone.
All of you who wear the badge – who give so much of yourselves to keep our communities safe – thank you. You bring honor to our Department and to our country.
Alejandro N. Mayorkas
Secretary of Homeland Security
With honor and integrity, we will safeguard the American people, our homeland, and our values.
