In honor of National Police Week, Fairfax County has made great strides to show what the men and women in law enforcement mean to them.
The Fairfax County Public Safety building is where the Fairfax County Police Department’s headquarters is located. This is why the county put a thin blue line and put up a remembrance monument to honor all of the police officers in the county who died in the line of duty. Supervisor Penny Gross of the Mason District says it’s important to realize how dangerous of a job it is even in one of the safest county’s in all of America.
“The memorial gives us an opportunity to give a group hug to the remaining family members, but also it is an opportunity to honor the service of the people who we lost,” said Penny Gross, Mason District Supervisor.
National Police Week is celebrated until Saturday, May 18th.
