I would like my article to focus on the officers whom we lost nationwide this past year. This list is far too long. It encompasses all 2016 line-of-duty deaths through December 8, and unfortunately, even more will probably have occurred by the time you read it. Please review and remember our brothers and sisters who made the ultimate sacrifice. They will be forever missed, but never forgotten. May all of them rest in peace.
Let us pray that the list next year is nowhere near this size. I have great hope for law enforcement after President Trump won the election. His stance on fighting crime and his love for law enforcement are well known and well publicized. I hope and pray he puts the power back into the hands of law enforcement and allows them to protect and serve as they should.
