Spread the Word: Stand With Law Enforcement - Wear and Display BLUE
Join us tomorrow, FRIDAY, Feb. 12, 1PM EDT.
We encourage all LEO, first responders, supporters and citizens to please Wear and Display Blue this FRIDAY – and join us in a moment of silence to honor and remember the sacrifice of our fallen deputies and officers at 1PM EDT.
The senseless killing of four law enforcement officers just this week – on the heels of the anti-police “entertainment” at the Sunday Super Bowl halftime show – reminds us that the men and women in law enforcement take a solemn oath that includes putting their lives on the line every day to protect our citizens.

Do you think your K9 should be recognized for all of their hard work? If so, nominate your office’s K9 to be American Humane Association's Law Enforcement Dog of the Year!

Last year’s winner - Dax, the Law Enforcement Dog of the Year from Massachusetts and the first canine to be awarded the state’s Medal of Valor. Dax heroically saved his handler’s life during a raid on an armed suspect.

Entrants must submit photocopy of the law enforcement dog’s past or present certification/identification to act as such from an accredited organization.
Good luck to all of the nominees!

Recent events have spawned activist groups such as Black Lives Matter, a social justice group determined to bring attention to inequality, police brutality and racism,

Jonathan Thompson, executive director of the National Sheriff’s Association, said he has had many discussions with sheriffs across the country who have said departments are seeing significantly fewer applications as a result of low morale and the current focus on police misconduct.

But to LEO's the positives still outweigh the negatives. The increased media attention on police misconduct has only reinforced the idea of what the job would be like – dangerous and difficult.
