Anyone who knows us knows we can never pass up an opportunity to share our gratitude to law enforcement.
This month, we've been watching the tweets roll in about National Police Weekend in D.C.—established in 2020 by the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum—and continue to be moved by the photos and words coming from agencies across the country.
Here are just a few.

I was honored to attend National Police Weekend this year with MBPD’s finest to honor our brother Ptl. Jacob Hancher. Honoring our fallen brothers and sisters puts into perspective the reality the dangers officers face and makes me forever grateful to stand with them. pic.twitter.com/VIVCF1f4vW— Tom Vest (@TomVest_MBPD) October 19, 2021
