Troy Police Honor Fallen Officers

Troy Police Honor Fallen Officers

I can't, and don't want to, imagine an America without police. Last year, we lost twelve officers in California, a number that always carries significant weight, no matter how high or low it may appear.

I know. Hard to imagine that Donald J. Trump provided me with actual healing ... but he did.

I wish what happened in Dallas that night was a rare tragedy.

As Explorers placed a single white lily near photos of fallen officers from across California, Chief Ralph Martin solemnly read their names, including two former colleagues from his days as a member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. In 2016, 66 officers died as the result of crimes, and another 52 died in on-duty accidents, according to preliminary numbers the Federal Bureau of Investigation released Monday.

Solving gun violence is a complex problem.

"We have a good county and good citizens in the county and they support law enforcement".

And on top of all of this, one other celebration is happening this week.

This bill would make it easier for risky people, like stalkers and domestic abusers, to carry hidden guns in all 50 states.

Let's be clear about what silencers do: silencers reduce the sound and mask the flash of gunfire.

Makes killing, or attempting to kill, a law enforcement officer, firefighter, or other first responder, an aggravating factor in death penalty determinations.

As it does every year, the city will block the street in front of the Gulfport Police Department as officials and residents remember eight fallen police officers Friday. The money committed so far by the Government, as well as Chief Constables, Police and Crime Commissioners, staff associations and companies and business is testament to the significance of this project, and I have no doubt that people across the United Kingdom will be eager to raise the rest of the funds needed.

Police were initially puzzled as to why no neighbors heard the 14 shots: it was because Dorner used a silencer.

Thursday's event coincides with National Police Week.

"This is a demanding career choice, there's a lot of sacrifice for not only those who are in law enforcement, but their families as well".

"Our weekend will be highlighting the sacrifices these men made not only for NY, but the entire nation", he said. And we are committed to opposing new irresponsible laws that would federally mandate concealed carry and make it easier for risky people to obtain silencers.

Also, George S. Frame from the now defunct Bassett Police Department was honored, as was John J. Johnston from the defunct Fieldale Police Department. "We too often take for granted what you do, but we know when the siren sounds, or the radio call comes, we know you're there and we take comfort in that", he said.

The nine men and one woman killed in 2016 had served their communities for various lengths of time before making the ultimate sacrifice.

"As the law enforcement community watched as its very own were targeted".
