Great Falls Police Department To Celebrate National Police Week

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

This week is National Police Week. Departments around the country are honoring the officers who risk their lives every day to keep the community safe, including our very own Great Falls Police Department. So far this year, 48 officers have been killed in the line of duty. Last year, 145 officers died while serving their communities. Montana records show 128 officers have been killed in the state, while city records show 5 GFPD officers have lost their lives.  This year, the department will be hosting its annual award luncheon Friday, May 19th to wrap up the week. Montana Attorney General Tim Fox released a statement about National Police week saying in part... "I want to express my appreciation for the men and women of Montana's... Law enforcement agencies....These fine individuals have embraced the noble calling of public service and put themselves in harm's way daily to keep us safe... I urge all Montanans to reach out to law enforcement officers in your communities and thank them for all they do."
