Designating February 4, 2010, as "Law Enforcement Appreciation Day".

Whereas, West Virginia can boast as having one of the lowest crime rates in the United States; and
Whereas, It is fitting and proper that law-enforcement officers be commended, encouraged and honored for their contributions that have resulted in these statistics; and
Whereas, Law-enforcement officers give generously of themselves both in spirit and deed so others might share in the joy of living in a free and democratic society; and
Whereas, Law-enforcement officers have the desire to help their fellow citizens in times of need, no matter how dangerous or difficult the situation; and
Whereas, We honor and appreciate the outstanding law-enforcement officers who have distinguished themselves with unselfish and exemplary service to the community and its citizens; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate:
That the Senate hereby declares February 4, 2010, as "Law Enforcement Appreciation Day"; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Senate is proud of the men and women who daily put their lives on the line and who uphold the creed "To protect and serve"; and, be it
Further Resolved,
T hat all West Virginians are encouraged to give due recognition to law-enforcement officers for distinguishing West Virginia with one of the lowest crime rates in America.
