(MADISON, WIS.) – In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed the week of May 15 as National Police Week, a time during which our country annually recognizes those officers that have lost their lives in the line of duty. To raise the public awareness of this week’s importance, and to honor all those who serve in law enforcement, the Wisconsin Professional Police Association (WPPA) is going to the airwaves with a statewide radio ad that will run through May 16 on the over 70 affiliated AM and FM stations served by the Wisconsin Radio Network.
“Our public safety and the quality of life that we enjoy come at a cost, and it’s fundamentally important that we salute those who risk and give their lives to protect us,” said WPPA Executive Director Jim Palmer. “As demonstrated by the most recent crime data showing decreases in both violent and property crimes, our country has become safer. The dedicated men and women of law enforcement help make that possible, and it’s vital that we celebrate their service and sacrifice.”
