In the United States, law enforcement officers put their lives at risk on the daily for the safekeeping and protection of others. They serve with valor, honor and distinction – and often with auspicious outcomes. However, the protection of law comes at a price. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund statistics, there are approximately 60,000 assaults on law enforcement officers each year, resulting in nearly 16,000 injuries, an average of 146 officers have been killed in line of duty and throughout the United States history, more than 20,000 law enforcement officers have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Even though there is no way to completely repay law enforcement officers, they should still be commended for their dedication. Our Presenta Plaque kits are the perfect way to honor their valor. In November of 2016, Lourenke Kidson of St. Louis County Police Department was honored with a plaque for returning to protect and serve, after leaving in 2012. In December of 2016, Sr. Officer Ronald Hall or “Pookie” was commended for his 30 years of excellence in service as a police officer for the Texas City Police Department. Officer Hall has never called in sick in the 30 years he has been of service and his extraordinary dedication did not go unnoticed.
Our law enforcement officers work hard and dedicate their lives to protect us. We should be aware of that and appreciate their hard work. Our plaques are accessible, ergonomic, versatile, functional and beautiful. What are you waiting for? Check out our website for more information and how to place your order.
