Harlem Rep Adriano Espaillat Recognizes National Police Week

May 15, 2017

Rep. Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) released the following statement today in recognition of National Police Week:

“In 1962, President John F. Kennedy designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day, which is now more commonly known as National Police Week. It is a time when we pause to honor the brave men and women who serve our communities as law enforcement officers around the country and reflect on their commitment and courage.

“New York’s finest serve and protect not only the largest city in the United States, but one of the largest cities in the world. They are the selfless first responders during times of tragedy and the heroes during our times of need. I am proud to salute our men and women in blue, and offer my sincerest gratitude to those who have paid the ultimate price while risking their lives to keep our communities safe. To police officers everywhere, on the start of this National Police Week, we say thank you for your service and for all that you do.”
