The members of the Jupiter Police Department would like to honor the law enforcement officers who lost their lives while making the ultimate sacrifice to protect others.
There are almost a million law enforcement officers in our country who selflessly serve to ensure the safety of others. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, there were 137 officers shot and killed in the line of duty across our nation in 2016 and three of those fatalities occurred in the State of Florida.
Law enforcement officers take an oath to protect the citizens within their communities; however, officers have become targets for senseless acts of violence.
I ask that you please keep our law enforcement officers in your thoughts and prayers every day as they continue to respond to calls for service and assist those in need.
I hope you have a happy and healthy 2017, and as always, I look forward to seeing you around town and don’t forget to visit us on Facebook and on Twitter for important events and information.
