Last week, deputies with Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office attended National Police Week in Washington, DC to represent RPSO.
Deputies, officers and troopers fro all over Louisiana were in attendance and helped with the activities for the families of the fallen officers.
So far this year, 44 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty.
Last year our country had 246 line of duty deaths.
The RPSO was honored to send deputies to Washington and assist the Louisiana COPS organization in their role in the National Police Week.
“When a police officer is killed, it’s not an agency that loses an officer, it’s an entire nation.”
