National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

The National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is the perfect date to show the people who protect us how important they are. Gratitude is the least we can give to officers. Join the holiday!


Police officers do hard work every day. Their day is active and loaded, associated with life risks. Often they work at night, patrolling the streets of the city or looking for a criminal in hot pursuit. A calm, measured life is not about them.

National Day created by several institutions in 2015. Its goal is to support US officers and improve their public image. This event was fueled by a 2014 incident in which an NYPD officer was embroiled in a shooting and Michael Brown’s black boyfriend was killed. This caused a huge outcry in the country and reduced confidence in law enforcement agencies. However, the American court acquitted the policeman.

There are about a million police officers in the country, each of them sometimes faces serious decisions. They are always adopted in accordance with the law and the interests of citizens. And we must support them even in the most difficult times!

Interesting facts

Did you know that:

  • each state has its own police department – it is completely independent of the others;
  • couples cannot work in the same department – this can harm the workflow;
  • when transferred to a new department, the old ranks of the policeman are canceled – he starts his way up the career ladder anew.
