Thank you Rudyard students for the ceremony and goodies! Great start for the week!

We are so excited! Our local students made letters, cards, signs, and goodie bags for us for National Police Week! Several businesses have also donated food. We can't tell you what it means to us to know we have your support. We will be munching and reading all week!

Please pay close attention to your money when you receive it. These are examples of 'training money' that are available on common shopping websites. They are marked as such but some are in foreign characters. Please pass this along.

On January 3, 1791, Albany County N.Y. Constable Darius Quimby was shot and killed while attempting to serve an arrest warrant for trespassing. From the most accurate records known, Constable Quimby is recognized as the first law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in the United States. Law enforcement is like no other civilian profession. We wear the uniform and pin on the badge, not for individual recognition or personal gain, but to serve our communities and protect our fellow citizens from those that are intent on creating disorder and harm. Day after day we leave the safety of our homes to patrol the city streets and rural areas. By the thousands we stand in the face of danger without hesitation where most would never consider going. Constable Quimby, like thousands of others since, did not surrender his life willingly. It was taken from him as he performed the tasks that were his responsibility as an officer. We go forth knowing in the backs of our minds, but without dwelling on the fact, that each run may be the one that prevents us from returning to our families. Our satisfaction comes at the end of our careers when we may look back and reflect that we have assisted other people, helped bring criminals to justice, and have done what we could to make the country a little safer. Peace Officer’s Memorial Day / National Police Week Since 1963, by Presidential resolution, May 15th of each year has been designated as Peace Officer’s Memorial Day. It is on this day when the country pays tribute to those men and women of law enforcement who have lost their lives while in the performance of their duties. Ceremonies are held across the nation honoring their sacrifice, remembering their commitment to duty, and consoling and supporting those that they left behind and have lost so much. The week in which Peace Officer’s Memorial Day falls is recognized as National Police Week. It is during this period where we can show our appreciation to those brave souls who continually stand in harm’s way in order to provide a safer community. Project Blue Ribbon During National Police Week blue ribbons can be seen tied to police cars and worn on the uniforms of officers throughout the United States and Canada. The Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (C.O.P.S.) has backed this program as a way of showing support for those currently serving in the profession and in memory of those that have lost their lives in the line of duty and their families. Non-law enforcement individuals are encouraged to show their support by displaying the blue ribbons in the same manner. Donations are welcome to help offset the operational cost of this event and can be made to the UPPER PENINSULA PEACE OFFICERS MEMORIAL FUND at one of the following local Law Enforcement Agencies: Michigan State Police Post Sault Ste. Marie City Police Department Chippewa County Sheriff Office Sault Ste. Marie Tribal Police Department Thank you for your continued support of our fallen Officers
