Hoeven Statement on Peace Officers Memorial Day

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement in commemoration of Peace Officers Memorial Day:

“Today, I wish to join the many Americans from across our country who are pausing to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and remember the fallen officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while upholding justice and protecting our communities. These brave men and women represent the very best of our nation, and it is fitting and right that we should set aside a day to remember their courage, dedication and willingness to put themselves in harm’s way for the rest of us. In doing this, we help honor the enduring legacy these individuals have left to their families, communities and our nation.”
