Rep. Cabello Honors Fallen Law Enforcement for Police Officers Memorial Day

I was honored to lead a floor speech yesterday about our fallen law enforcement officers in recognition of Police Officer Memorial Day.

The men and women who have the courage, dedication, and honor to wear that badge don’t want to do anything except protect and serve. It’s a calling, a lifestyle, not just something you decide to do. It’s something that burns inside of you, driving you to help your fellow citizens, to be there when they need you most, and to handle rapidly evolving situations perfectly.

These brave men and women do everything they can, day in and day out, to do their job right, with honor, integrity, and guts. Most importantly, they do it to protect you. There is no more noble job than being able to protect one’s citizens, and there are no more committed people to do this job than our police.
