WASHINGTON, DC - Marking National Police Week, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today thanked our nation’s police officers for all that they do to keep our communities strong and safe.  Following are Boehner’s remarks:

“Let me also take a moment to recognize National Police Week.  The job of a police officer is not easy. It’s also very dangerous, as a report from the FBI this week confirmed.  There are more than 900,000 sworn law enforcement officers in our country.  We’re surrounded by some of the finest of these officers right here at the Capitol.  So on behalf of the whole House, I want to thank all of our police officers and their families for their service and their daily sacrifices.”
