May 18, 2017

(Washington, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) recognized National Police Week, issuing the following statement:

“This National Police Week we pause to honor the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice, and we lift up all of the families, friends, and loved ones touched by the loss of a fallen hero. We will never forget their remarkable service or the great debt we owe them. To all law enforcement officers and personnel, we thank you for putting your lives on the line each day to serve and protect our communities. We are inspired by your bravery and will continue to pray for your safety.”

Napolitano continues to work closely with San Gabriel Valley police departments on several important issues, including establishing a canine training facility in West Covina to service the San Gabriel Valley and partnering with LA County mental health providers to promote crisis intervention training for police officers. She also hosts an annual Congressional Prayer Breakfast as a tribute to local police, fire, and military personnel and their families. Napolitano is a member of the Congressional Law Enforcement Caucus.
