Honoring our Nation’s Law Enforcement Officers

Washington, May 17, 2013 -

This week communities across the nation paid tribute to the service of our nation’s local, state, and federal law enforcement officers as part of National Police Week.  I commend the brave men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day to keep families in San Bernardino County and across our nation safe. As we honor their service, we also mourn for those who have fallen in the line of duty. Words cannot adequately express the sorrow we feel for their families and friends for their loss.

Protecting our neighborhoods from the horrors of gang violence, human trafficking, domestic violence, and other criminal activities remains one of my top priorities.  It is vital that we ensure that those who have dedicated their careers to protecting the public have the resources necessary to fulfill their mission. I will continue to work in Congress during these fiscally challenging times to prioritize funding to strengthen public safety efforts and support our region’s law enforcement officers.
