Our law-enforcement officers are the first line of defense against crime. They conduct themselves in a manner that supports, maintains and defends the Constitution of the state of Indiana and the United States. While performing their duties, they risk their own lives to save the lives of others.
The law-enforcement officer faces difficult challenges every day.
Their jobs can be dangerous, frustrating and tedious at times. Perry County’s peacekeepers significantly improve the quality of life for the citizens of our community by keeping the peace, despite overwhelming odds. The protection of our community is a 24-7 endeavor.
It is important that our police officers receive appreciation, recognition, support and respect for the work that they do. Our officers have chosen a profession that has placed them in harm’s way. When others flee from danger, they respond to that danger. Our law-enforcement officers are disrespected, assaulted and sometimes killed in the line of duty.
They are the difference between good and evil. They serve as our Perry County heroes. Their hard work, dedication and sacrifice is an inspiration to us all.
The members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars are sometimes called heroes for their service to America, but a hero is one who never hesitates to take on the most difficult problems. Someone who is always by your side and someone who knows right from wrong.
Someone who acts with pride. A hero touches everyone of us, rather it be by word or deed, always tending to those who find themselves in need.
Our law-enforcement officers fit this definition without question and are called our local heroes.
