Honoring Central New York Police on National Police Week
Every May 15th since 1962, when President John F. Kennedy made an official proclamation, marks the beginning of National Police Week. It's a week that offers folks the chance to pay special recognition to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Here in Central New York, officers like Joseph Corr and Thomas Lindsey will always rest in our memories for their heroic service and for the tragic circumstances of their deaths. Sometimes we take for granted our law enforcement officers and all they do to look out for our safety. Here are a few of the best Lite 98.7 posts on our policemen and women, what they do, and how we interact with them:
- We had a great story recently about the Rome Police Department assisting with a marriage proposal.
- New York state ranks very high when it comes to having a career in law enforcement, as we learned in a recent study.
- There's a code of behavior the police expect at a sobriety checkpoint, and if you adhere, it may help you avoid a ticket.
- A couple of years ago, two Central New York women made history in the New York State Police Department.
- A New Hartford boy wrote an adorable note to the police that caught our attention a couple of years ago.
Make sure to thank your local policewomen and men for their service. And if there's a particular one who deserves recognition on Lite 98.7, please let us know.
