Take the LEAD!

Each year on, January 9th, people from across the country, organizations and agencies will come together for Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (LEAD). THere are many wasy to show your support:  Wear blue, drop off small thank you items to your local departments, ideas are endless…

In Illinois, we have lost over 1,000 police officers in the history of our state. Nationally, over the past ten years, 150 officers die each year, and thousands more are assaulted. Often times, officers must make split second decisions that can have tremendously profound consequences. And many times, these decisions are second guessed. We appreciate the jobs they do and the responsibility they embrace-and we hope you do too.  Thanks for joining us on LEAD!!
