SPRINGFIELD – To honor the men and women who keep our communities safe, Assistant Majority Leader Tony Munoz (D-Chicago) supported a proposal to make the week of May 15-21, 2022 Police Appreciation Week in Illinois that was adopted by the Senate.
“As a former Chicago police officer, I understand the oath that these men and women take when they put on the badge,” Munoz said. “It is an honor to support this resolution as police officers put their lives on the line daily, and law enforcement families need to know we have their backs.”
Senate Resolution 914 recognizes the dedication and sacrifice of local, state and federal police officers and their service to the state. Additionally, the families of the state’s law enforcement officers deserve to be duly recognized for their endless sacrifices, commitment to keeping our neighborhoods safe and ensuring the general welfare of society.
Senate Resolution 914 passed the Senate with bipartisan support.
