Law enforcement officers across our great nation recognized Veterans Day and our brave U.S. military veterans, both in our communities as well as many of whom serve among our active duty law enforcement officers. International Union of Police Associations President Sam A. Cabral put out a statement last week about Veterans Day that you can read here on honoring veterans on Veterans Day as well as every day of the year. I.U.P.A. Locals and their departments also honored veterans, in official ceremonies as well as in other ways.
On Veterans Day in Vero Beach, Florida, officers from the Vero Beach Police Department attended a Veterans Day ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Island Sanctuary, during which a newly installed World War I monument was dedicated by the Indian River Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America.
On Veterans Day and every day, the Milwaukee Police Department in Wisconsin honors their veterans by giving them pins to wear on their uniforms that recognize the branch of the military in which they served.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office in Florida gives officers who are veterans decals for their cruisers and pins that identify the branch of the military in which they bravely served our country.
