The National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.) is celebrated on January 9 every year. This day is celebrated in honor of all the law enforcement officers for their dedicated services towards the community and also as a token of appreciation for all the sacrifices and risks.

On January 9th of each year, we will call our nation’s citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Those citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given to law enforcement are encouraged to take time on January 9th to show their support.

 

How Can We Celebrate National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day:

1. We can show our appreciation to active members of the police at any time of the year by writing letters, sending emails, or simply saying “Thank you!”.

2. Purchase gift cards to be given to on-duty deputies.

3. Show your appreciation on social media using hashtags such as #NationalLawEnforcementAppreciationDay #PoliceSupport #LoveYourLocalHeros.

4. See an officer? Say "Thank You" and/or buy their lunch.

5. Visit the HCSO website to write a compliment at: https://www.hamiltoncounty.in.gov/607/Compliments-Complaints

6. Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement.

7. Participate in Project Blue Light - Proudly display your blue light in support of law enforcement.

 

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day was created by multiple organizations in 2015 to express their gratitude for officers in the United States. In support of their services citizens are encouraged to do their part in thanking the law enforcers on this day. One of the main organizations to take the lead in this is C.O.P.S – Concerns of Police Survivors. According to them, law enforcement officers need to be shown that the difficult career path they have chosen is recognized by the people who they protect.

In Memory of the Hamilton County Officer Killed in the Line of Duty

Deputy Marshal David K. Brown
Westfield Police Department, Indiana
E.O.W. - Saturday, January 11, 1969

Age: 30

Tour: 3 years

Cause: Gunfire

Weapon: Officer's handgun

Offender: Died in prison

Deputy Marshal David Brown was shot and killed while checking on a suspicious vehicle containing two subjects behind Westfield High School.
 

 

 

During the stop Deputy Brown had one of the men sit

 

in his front passenger seat. As Deputy Brown spoke to him the man attacked him inside the car and disarmed him. The man then fatally shot him before both suspects fled the scene.

When the dispatcher was unable to contact Deputy Marshal Brown with the reply, a second officer was sent to check on him. Upon the second officer's arrival, Deputy Marshal Brown was found shot to death in his patrol car. During the stop Deputy Brown had written down the vehicle's license plate number.

The vehicle was located at a home in Indianapolis approximate two hours later by a police officer who had stopped it earlier in the night. Both suspects were arrested at the home. It was determined that Deputy

 

Brown had interrupted the men stealing a pig from a field behind the high school.

The man who shot Deputy Brown was sentenced to life in prison, where he later died.

Deputy Marshal Brown had served with the Westfield Police Department for three years. He was survived by his son, daughter, brother, three sisters and parents.

BloodMonth.jpg

The month of January is usually a period of critical blood shortages. People stop donating blood during the holidays and when they get sick during cold and flu season. Blood drives also get snowed out during the winter months.

More than 50 years ago — on December 31, 1969 — President Richard Nixon of the United States signed a proclamation designating January as National Blood Donor Month (NBDM). The new monthly observance was meant to honor voluntary blood donors and to encourage more people to give blood at a time when more blood is needed.
