 Pompeo Statement to Commemorate Law Enforcement Memorial Week

WICHITA, KS – Kansas Fourth District Congressman Mike Pompeo issued the following statement to commemorate the law enforcement memorial ceremony in Wichita, KS today:

“Today in Wichita we pause to remember and honor the lives of the law enforcement heroes who have died while serving to keep us safe. 

 “These brave men and women were not only the first line of defense against violence, they served as public ambassadors to render assistance to all in need during times of emergency.  These heroes responded without hesitation when called upon.  They were quick to rush into a dangerous situation to protect innocent citizens—no matter what the obstacle or risk.

“As we pause to honor these fallen heroes, may we never forget their sacrifice, nor the sacrifice of their families and friends.  We should also pay respect today to the men and women currently serving in law enforcement, who carry the same passion to serve as their fallen comrades.”
