Richard Hudson, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and honor the fine men and women who faithfully serve in North Carolina’s 8th Congressional District as law enforcement officers. Every year since 1962, when President John F. Kennedy declared May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day, our country observes National Police Week during the calendar week of May 15th. This is the day we pay our respects to those heroic officers who died in the line of duty and to their families. National Police Week presents us with a unique opportunity to show support for these important public servants. My district is fortunate to have brave men and women who dedicate and risk their lives daily for our well-being and security. Their commitment to the safety of others deserves our gratitude and appreciation, and their service is an example to the people of North Carolina.
