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.

“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.”
