Peace Officers’ Memorial Day
GOLF MANOR (5/15/2021) — Submitted by Mayor Stefan Densmore
This past week was National Police Week, which recognizes the courage and selfless service of law enforcement officers across our county. It is a difficult time to be in law enforcement, as examples of bad policing have been highlighted over the past year, bringing attention to where improvements need to be made in many police departments across the country. I have written about this in a previous blog post. So many examples of bad policing can make the job really hard for good police officers– and can further obscure the integrity and courage of the vast majority of these officers that often goes unnoticed.
In Golf Manor we are fortunate to have our own police department, comprised of exemplary officers, devoted to the hard work required to keep our department an example to others across the nation. They need our support and are thankful to the community for helping them during these difficult times.
Today I issued a proclamation honoring National Peace Officers’ Memorial Day. The text of the proclamation is provided below. I ask that all residents of the Village of Golf Manor take time today to consider the daily toll on families and intimate friends of active-duty peace officers, and join me in saluting the courageous and selfless service of peace officers in our community and in communities across the nation.
This report is respectfully submitted to the residents of Golf Manor. Thank you for the honor of being your Mayor. Please feel free to contact me with any ideas, comments or questions. To our staff and elected officials, thank you for your service to the community.
Stefan Densmore, Mayor, Village of Golf Manor
