SICKENED!

I returned from a rare vacation to find this collection of 13 condolence cards to be signed and sent to the Chiefs of Law Enforcement Agencies who have lost Police Officers in the Line of Duty during the past two weeks. 

This is happening in spite of the great emergency services, medical care, and protective equipment.

Seeing such a collection of cards assembled in such a short period of time stirs emotions and creates anger.

Why is this happening in America? 

Is this happening in other countries?

Do we just accept that this is just the price of business?

I think not!!!! 

To our political leaders, social leaders, judicial leaders, and community members, we need your help! 

Keep supporting us and the changes that need to take place to help minimize these tremendous losses and also support their families as well as first responders who are mentally and physically injured while performing their Duties

Sincerely,

Chief Frank G. Frederickson
