Spokane, Washington – As part of National Police Week, William D. Hyslop, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, announced the release of three video public service announcements (“PSA”) honoring the service of our law enforcement officers across the country. And, we particularly honor those who lost their lives in the line of duty in 2019. Each year, during National Police Week we commemorate the courage, duty, and extraordinary character this selfless profession mandates. Sadly, it also marks a time to honor and pay tribute to the 307 men and women whose names were engraved in 2020 on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, 135 of which represent those killed in the line of duty in 2019.
U.S. Attorney Hyslop said, “Few callings are as noble as serving as a law enforcement professional. Law enforcement officers are essential to the strength and prosperity of our communities. There are more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide, with brave men and women who honorably serve their communities daily. Every day, these courageous men and women place the safety and security of their communities above their own. Their unwavering commitment to serve on the front lines fighting crime and violence deserves our gratitude.”
