Hi everyone! This is National Law Enforcement Week, and since I write crime fiction I wanted to take a minute to thank the many men and women in blue who work so hard to keep us safe. Sometimes the unthinkable happens, and one or more of them fall in the line of duty. This week, memorials will take place around the country to honor and remember those who have given their lives protecting and serving at all levels of law enforcement. Keeping the peace is so often a thankless, uncertain job — and it is always dangerous.
To quote a close friend of mine who lost her LEO father years ago, “When one officer falls, many hurt.”
