Commemorating National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

American, City and Police Flags on Flagpoles outside, Commemorating National Law Enforcement Day

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is recognized annually on January 9. In commemoration of this day, and to recognize the men and women of the Signal Hill Police Department and all law enforcement agencies, we are flying a special flag through February 1. We hope you'll join us in thanking and recognizing local law enforcement for the difficult work they do daily.

This day was created by several organizations in 2005. One leading group that organizes events surrounding National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day is Concerns of Police Survivors, or C.O.P.S

If you'd like to get involved, there are a number of ways to show support, according to C.O.P.S.:

  • Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement.
  • Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency.
  • Share a story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media.
  • Encourage children to write letters in support of law enforcement.
  • Participate in Project Blue Light - display a blue light in your home in support of law enforcement.
  • If you see a police officer, thank a police officer (while following COVID-19 safety guidance).
