Can you imagine going to work each day, wondering if you will survive your shift and see your family that night? Most people can’t. Each day, 780,000 police officers across America put on the badge knowing they may face extremely dangerous situations. On average, 50,000 are assaulted and 105-203 of them die in the line of duty every year. [i]
Franklin Police Officers are honored by the Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.), Friday.
On January 9th, C.O.P.S. is calling our nation’s citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Franklin citizens who appreciate what police officers do, every day, to keep Franklin safe are encouraged to, in some way, show their support on Friday. For suggestions, visit Concerns of Police Survivors.
“This is not just a job, or career – it’s a calling,” said 40-year police veteran, Chief Deborah Faulkner. “Franklin Police Officers, and officers everywhere, are committed to enforcing the law, apprehending the dangerous, and protecting the innocent. I support them, and am honored by their service and sacrifice.”
Thank you ALL for your service and protecting our community. I’m sure you don’t hear that nearly enough but it’s the very least I (and we all) can do. I pray for your (and your family’s) protection, discernment and safety as you put your lives on the line daily. Be safe and Godspeed!
Thank you, SO MUCH!!I’m sharing your sentiments with our officers.
As a long time resident of Williamson County and a director of a business based in Franklin, I cannot express enough my appreciation for the exceptional quality of service the Franklin Police Department provides for our community! Dedicated, diligent and outstanding are consistent characteristics of this force. Thank each of you for all you do each and every day to keep this community safe.
