CONCORD – Senator Maggie Hassan today participated in the annual New Hampshire Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial Ceremony, where she honored fallen law enforcement officers for their selfless sacrifice to protect their fellow Granite Staters and keep their communities safe.
Earlier this week, Senator Hassan met with members of the New Hampshire Police Association, commending them for their leadership in the fight against substance misuse in New Hampshire and for all that they do to keep New Hampshire safe. Also this week, the United States Senate passed a resolution Senator Hassan introduced with a number of her colleagues to designate the week of May 13 through May 19, 2018, as “National Police Week.”
“Our brave law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to protect their fellow Granite Staters and keep our communities safe,” Senator Hassan said. “The Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial Ceremony is an important time to come together to pay tribute to our fallen heroes and recommit ourselves to supporting their families, loved ones, and fellow officers. I will continue working to ensure that our dedicated law enforcement officials have the support they need to keep our communities and our state safe and strong.”
The ceremony in Concord is organized by the New Hampshire Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial Association and held each year in conjunction with Law Enforcement Memorial Week as a way to pay tribute to the law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty protecting their fellow citizens.
