Meet Our Heroes- National Law Enforcement Week 2021

ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week (May 9-15, 2021).

National Police Week is a collaborative effort of many organizations dedicated to honoring America’s law enforcement community.

“Each day, Law Enforcement Officers go to work not knowing what their day has in store for them, or if they will make it home safe to their families at night. We want to take this moment to thank all the Officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty,” Robertson County Sheriff’s Office.

Smokey Barn News has added several photos of some of our local heroes.

As a reporting agency, we know many in law enforcement. Many agencies today are hiring, it’s not a job for everyone. You will save lives, comfort a lost child, hug a mother in distress, feed a hungry homeless person, assist firefighters by pulling hoses during a fire, tell a suicidal person that someone does care. You will also get shot at, go hungry on long shifts, get yelled at for no reason, notify next of kin, be a calm voice when surrounded by death, leave your spouse at dinner-“Gotta go, love you dear,” and you’ll do it all to preserve our way of life knowing few will really understand. That’s why they call it the Shield.
