During National Police Week, we honor the men and women in law enforcement for their service and sacrifice, and say goodbye as a nation to those whose end of watch came too soon.
We owe these individuals far more than our thanks, and the People’s House stands united in our work to provide law enforcement the tools and the resources they need to keep our communities safe. This week, we are passing several bills to do just that.
Here’s how House Republicans honored their communities during #NationalPoliceWeek:
Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX):Hurd on the Hill Special Edition
During the nine-and-a-half years I spent as an undercover officer in the CIA, I worked alongside my colleagues in the intelligence community, the diplomatic corps, and the military to prevent another terrorist attack like our nation experienced on September 11, 2001. While we were fighting this battle on the international stage, the brave men and women at police departments across the country were working hard to detect and prevent terrorist activities at home. Their job has become even more difficult and important as the threat has shifted from large-scale assaults perpetrated by international terrorist organizations to “lone wolf” attacks in crowded venues or on city streets.
