While not every shift for our local police, sheriff's deputies, state troopers and corrections officers might present a life-threatening situation, we know that there are times when they must rely on their training and their coworkers to ensure that they all make it home safely at the end of the day. This day has been observed in the United States annually ever since. In 2017, 129 police officers died in the line of duty. We also solemnly acknowledge our debt to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
