SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 23

(By Senators Foster, Unger, Stollings, Minard, Prezioso, Plymale, Edgell, McCabe, Jenkins, Kessler and McKenzie)


Designating February 25, 2008, as "Law Enforcement Appreciation Day".

Whereas, West Virginia has 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 designates February 25, 2008, 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, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the appropriate representatives of law enforcement.
