WASHINGTON, DC -- Representative Mike Michaud recognized National Police week by submitting a Congressional Record statement honoring Maine law enforcement. Michaud joined New England law enforcement officers to attend the 25th annual candlelight vigil sponsored by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

"Every year, thousands come to Washington to honor and remember those who valiantly gave their lives serving their communities. We honor the memory and sacrifice of the fallen officers throughout the world that strive to make our lives safe," said Michaud, who has long championed increased federal support of local and state law enforcement.

The full text of Michaud's Congressional Record statement:

Honoring Maine's State Police

MR. SPEAKER, I rise today to welcome the law enforcement officers from Maine and around the world that are joining us for National Police Week.

Every year, thousands come to Washington to honor and remember those who valiantly gave their lives serving their communities. We honor the memory and sacrifice of the fallen officers throughout the world that strive to make our lives safe.

Each day, law enforcement officials like Maine State Trooper Douglas Cropper risk their safety for our protection. Just last summer, Trooper Cropper raced ahead of a driver going in the wrong direction on a very busy interstate. Cropper, without hesitation, pulled in front of the disoriented driver so that his police vehicle would collide into the oncoming vehicle. The vehicle came to rest, preventing any serious injury to the driver and possibly saving lives of innocent motorists.

MR. SPEAKER, please join me in recognizing the thousands of law enforcement officers like Trooper Cropper who selflessly put their safety on the line every day.
