“Thank you to the men and women across the country that serve in this great career. National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.) falls on January 9 every year and helps citizens come together to show appreciation to their local law enforcement.

“L.E.A.D. – Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. We are proud of our team of professionals who serve everyday with compassion and professionalism. “Thank you” does not express the gratitude we have for the women and men who keep our communities safe and secure. If you see a law enforcement officer today, please give them a friendly wave or a simple “thank you” for their service. #LEAD #summitcounty” writes the Summit County Sheriff.

“January 9th is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day! Local, state, and federal officers everywhere have chosen a profession that puts their life on the line every day for their communities. They’ve answered a call to public service that is demanding and often unappreciated,” says the Cache County Sheriff’s Office.

“The jobs are often thankless and take them away from their families for long hours. They never know what their days or nights have in store for them. More often they work in coordination with other local, state, and federal organizations to make communities safer. On National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, we have an opportunity to thank them for their service and offer a token of respect.”

“Happy National Law Enforcement Day! 💙🖤💙” shares the Syracuse Police Department.

“We would like to thank Senator Lincoln Fillmore for thinking of our officers for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. #LEAD2021 #cupcakesUnified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake says.

“Thank you to all the women and men who have served and continue to serve. #NationalLawEnforcementAppreciationDay” writes Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
