Merrill would like Cache County residents to show their appreciation for local law enforcement

The Honor Guard posted the colors at the Cache County Council meeting Tuesday, May 10, 2016. Lt. Peterson spoke about each of the four fallen deputies from the Cache County Sheriffs Office. A proclamation was then read designating May 15, 2016, as Peace Officer Memorial Day.

Next week, May 15-21, is National Law Enforcement Week. It is a time to show appreciation to those who work to keep our people and our communities safe.

At Tuesday’s meeting of the Cache County Council, Chairman Greg Merrill said we should all pause to show our appreciation for those who serve as law enforcement officers in Cache County.

“I know that we are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful valley, such a peaceful valley. I credit that in part to the good citizens of the county but also, especially, to our law enforcement officers,” says Merrill. “I know many parts of the country the law enforcement officers and citizens are in conflict.

“But that is not the case here. I attribute that to the high quality, the professionalism of our law enforcement officers here in the county.”

Several activities have been scheduled locally in observance of Law Enforcement Week.
