NEW ORLEANS— U.S. Attorney Peter G. Strasser recognizes the service and sacrifice of federal, state, and local police officers on the occasion of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (LEAD), which is being observed on January 9. Law Enforcement Appreciation Day was established in 2015.

U.S. Attorney Strasser said, “During Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, I encourage the nation to celebrate the selfless contributions from our brave men and women in law enforcement from around the country, and especially in the Eastern District of Louisiana, by recognizing their hard work, dedication, loyalty and commitment in keeping our communities safe.  As the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana, I want to acknowledge the work performed by federal, state, and local law enforcement and the choice made by them to protect and serve with full knowledge that they could one day find themselves facing dangerous situations.  We want them and their families to know they have our unwavering support and appreciation. I encourage us as a community to take some time to reflect and honor the fallen and also continue to support those who continue to dutifully serve the public.”
