Take a moment to acknowledge sacrifices of law enforcement officers

Posted 10 May 2021 at 7:07 am


Every citizen has a duty to obey the law and every police officer has a duty to enforce the law. If you haven’t yet jumped aboard the anti-police rhetoric train, please take a moment during this National Police Week to acknowledge the men and women of law enforcement.

And on May 15th, which is National Peace Officer’s Memorial Day, please remember New York State Police Sergeant Harry Adams – End of Watch September 1, 1951, and Orleans County Sheriff’s Deputy David Whittier – End of Watch September 8, 1989.

Both of these individuals made the ultimate sacrifice while serving the citizens of Orleans County.
