To members of law enforcement and your families: we know that not a single day, nor a single week, is enough to recognize your service and sacrifice. On behalf of the entire Department of Justice, you have our unwavering support and eternal gratitude.”

This year has presented even more challenges than most,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Prerak Shah. “We can never repay our officers’ myriad sacrifices, but we will always stand behind them.
