Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
We love the start of a new year and especially the 9th of January. Why do you ask? Because it’s Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
Coming from the security sector ourselves, we have an extra appreciation for the work that the brave men and woman from the SAPS provide. So from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!
Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, is all about saying thank you to those who have one of the toughest positions in the country. Whether you are a police officer, have family members who are police officers, or have no clue what that’s like, this holiday is all about bringing light into a dark perspective of the police force.
History of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
This day was founded in 2015 by multiple organizations who joined together to show appreciation for officers in the United States. One of the main organizations, Concerns of Police Survivors, encourages citizens to thank their police officers on this day in support of their services. According to C.O.P.S, they believe that there is a need to show law enforcement officers that people recognize the difficult careers that have chosen as a public service to protect lives and uphold the law.
This holiday was sparked by the events of 2014 when an officer was involved shooting in Ferguson, Missouri and the violence and negativity that brewed over that event led to C.O.P.S hoping to change that. They discourage the negative attention that police officers have been getting in recent news and hope to turn the image of police officers into a positive one. Because there are over 900,000 law enforcement officers in America, CO.P.S believes it is vital to show them support during times of difficulty, and thus the holiday helps bring awareness to the difficult decisions police officers have to make each day in the best interest of the law and people.
How to celebrate Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
If you want to spread the positivity of police officers, then you can ask your kids to write letters to support law enforcement. You can also change your profile picture to show your support for the police as well. If you have family members who are police officers, spend time with them by letting them tell you about their experiences as a cop and bond with them.
