We will 'take care of' violent crimes against police

President Trump announced Monday that he'll light the White House blue to honor police officers for Monday's Peace Officer Memorial Day.

This week is National Police Week, a week to honor law enforcement across the country.

"128 law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty since 1878 just before Montana became a state", he said.

Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, had struggled to balance his rhetorical support for the police against empathy for the protesters. "And, believe me, they are very proud..."

"True social justice means a future where every child in every neighborhood can play outside without fear", Trump said, vowing to crack down on gangs and take action to tackle the "unbearable horror" of crime in places such as Baltimore and Chicago. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week announced it concluded a six-week nationwide operation targeting gangs that made 1,378 arrests, including 1,095 were confirmed as gang members and affiliates.

"Now, as President, my highest duty is to keep America safe.We will keep America safe", he promised.

Both the President and Vice-President added flowers to a wreath that is now at the national law enforcement memorial. "Because you don't hear it almost enough, I want you to know that patriotic Americans of all backgrounds truly support and love our police. And you did, big league".

The police lieutenant expressed thanks to the Franklin Street Department for their work on Monday morning to put the blue lines down. It is a time to let your local police officers know that you support them and care about their well-being as they protect and assist us 24/7, 365 days a year.

Five of those deaths occurred previous year alone.

The bracelets honor the 143 officers who died in the line of duty previous year across the country.

Texas again led the way with the most officers killed at 19.

Peace Officers Memorial Day was first signed into law in 1962, designating May 15 as the national day of recognition.

"It's a huge event for us and it's something that we are proud to participate in, the families are going to be out there".
