Statement by Premier King on National Police Week
Premier Dennis King issued the following statement recognizing National Police Week:
“National Police Week is a time to recognize and express our appreciation for all members of police agencies working in our province to keep Islanders safe.
As Islanders, we are lucky to live in one of the safest provinces in Canada. It is because of the dedication and bravery of police officials and the collaborative effort of law enforcement agencies across our province that we enjoy the peace of mind found in safe communities.
The tireless work of police officials is complex, dangerous, and requires sacrifices that we will never know. While it can often be in emergencies that we appreciate their courage and perseverance, we know that officers remain unwavering in their duty to serve and protect others every day.
This week we honour all members of our law enforcement community as they risk their lives to protect ours, and we remember those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
On behalf of all Islanders, I share my respect, gratitude and support for members of our law enforcement community and their families.”
