LANSING, Mich. – The state Senate on Thursday adopted a resolution sponsored by Sen. Lana Theis recognizing May 14-20 as Police Week in Michigan.
“Our law enforcement community has never been more important, yet more and more they are facing challenges — not the least of which being more crime — that make their jobs increasingly difficult,” said Theis, R-Brighton. “At a time when our communities need more officers to keep our streets, homes, and businesses safe, squads across the state and nation are unfortunately facing shortages. It is important that the law enforcement community hear from those of us who back the blue, support their service, and respect the dangers they willingly face each day to protect Michigan residents.
“Our communities rely on these courageous individuals when it is difficult to stand on our own, and we are indebted to the unwavering public service of our local and state police. We are indeed fortunate and grateful for the contributions of law enforcement officers to the people of this state.”
