Phoenix – Former Congressman and Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon today issued the following statement in recognition of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day:
“I want to wish a happy and well-deserved National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day to all of those who put on the uniform each day. Our streets, our borders, and our neighborhoods are safer because of the courageous men and women who risk their lives for our communities.
“There is a tremendous amount of misguided political scrutiny that makes it difficult to serve in law enforcement these days, and I am grateful for every Arizonan in uniform who perseveres and answers their calling to protect the people around them.
“As our next governor, I promise that these men and women will have a central seat at the table in policymaking to ensure their voices are always heard.”
