The Sarpy County Board of Commissioners today honored law enforcement officers for the work they do to keep Sarpy County residents safe.
The Board issued a proclamation recognizing May 12-18 as National Police Week and May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day.
Commissioner Kelly specifically thanked the members of the Sarpy County Sheriff's Office.
"We often share that Sarpy County is one of the safest counties not just in the state but also across the whole country, and that is because of the work you do," he said.
A group of Deputies is in Washington, D.C., this week to represent the Sheriff's Office at National Police Week events and memorials.
ABOUT NATIONAL POLICE WEEK
In 1962, President Kennedy signed a proclamation declaring May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls as Police Week.
Each year, law enforcement officers from across the country travel to Washington, D.C., to take part in activities that honor those who lost their lives while protecting our communities.
