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

“Mikey and I are honored to join our fellow North Dakotans and Americans today in pausing to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day as a formal way of commemorating all of the fallen officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while upholding justice and protecting our communities. Our nation’s peace officers serve with courage and dedication as they work each day to ensure we can continue to live in peaceful and safe communities. It is important that we recognize the sacrifice and service of all of our peace officers, and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Today our thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends and colleagues of all of our nation’s fallen peace officers, and we hope today’s memorials serve as fitting tributes to the important legacies of all fallen peace officers.”
