Every day, law enforcement officials across the country put their lives on the line to enforce the rule of law and serve justice around our communities. Last year, 135 police officers lost their lives in the line of duty, including 9 in the state of Florida alone. This National Police Week, we honor those fallen heroes and recognize the service of police officers in our communities. This week we passed a series of bills to support our law enforcement community’s efforts.
