I Will Always Support Our Capitol Police

Last week’s attack on the U.S. Capitol was a horrific, dark day for our country. While we saw the worst in some, we also saw the best in others. Law enforcement officers, especially those with the U.S. Capitol Police and Sergeant at Arms, put their lives on the line to protect others and I will be forever grateful for their service.

 

Their actions that day were nothing short of heroic. They were greatly outnumbered and did the absolutely best they could, given the situation they found themselves in. When I visited the triage center shortly after the attack began, I saw many officers who were badly injured during the attack and they will be forever changed.

 

Tragically, we lost two members of the U.S. Capitol Police after the attack, Officer Brian Sicknick and Officer Howard Liebengood. I am heartbroken by the loss of these two courageous officers, but we will never forget the sacrifice they made as well as the sacrifice their families made.

 

The U.S. Capitol Police, like all other law enforcement officers, deserve not only our thanks, but also our full support. They sacrifice holidays, weekends, and other precious time with family and friends to serve the public.

 

Congress simply could not do what we do in Washington, DC without them. I will always support these heroes and I am proud to call many of them dear friends.
