In an effort to honor law enforcement officers throughout the state, the Senate Law and Public Safety Committee has approved a bipartisan joint resolution sponsored by Senator Kristin Corrado that would designate January 9 of each year as “Law Enforcement Officer Appreciation Day.”

“Each day, members of our law enforcement community put their own lives in jeopardy to respond to dangerous and sometimes life-threatening situations throughout the Garden State,” said Corrado (R-40). “To salute these heroes for their bravery, and the contributions they have made to the well-being of our state, it is only fitting that New Jersey officially recognize January 9 of each year as ‘Law Enforcement Officer Appreciation Day.’”

The legislation, SJR-21, would designate January 9 of each year as “Law Enforcement Officer Appreciation Day” and encourage New Jerseyans to join in the observance of this day of appreciation.

“In the past decade alone, more than 1,000 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in the United States, 19 of whom worked in New Jersey,” added Corrado. “Their deaths are a sober reminder that our state’s law enforcement officers face real danger every day as they carry out their duty to protect our communities.”
