Spokane, Wash. – William D. Hyslop, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington, announced that this Saturday, January 9th, 2021, is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. This day was established to thank and show support to our local law enforcement officers for their dedication to duty and service to their communities.

U.S. Attorney Hyslop stated, “Each and every day, our law enforcement officers put on their uniforms and leave the safety of their homes and the comfort of their families to protect and serve our communities. National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is a time to show them we appreciate their sacrifice and that we stand with them as they work to make our communities safe and secure. I ask everyone to send a note of thanks to their local law enforcement agency; their addresses are readily available online. And when you see an officer, wave to them and say ‘Thank you for all you do.”

Hyslop added, “The U.S. Attorney’s Office works closely with all federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement. We can’t complete the work we do without the support of our law enforcement partners. We appreciate them every day. We’re asking the residents of Eastern Washington to say Thank You this Saturday.”

Please take time this Saturday, January 9th, 2021 to show your appreciation to the law enforcement professionals by:

  • Wear blue in support of law enforcement
  • Send a card or letter of support to your local police department, county sheriff, tribal or state agency
  • Tell an officer “Thank You”
  • Share a story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media
  • Participate in Project Blue Light – Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement
  • Turn your social media channel blue
  • Fly a blue ribbon on your car antenna, mailbox, or anywhere a ribbon can be tied

Most importantly, if you see a police officer, thank a police officer.
