On July 7, 2016 five police officers were shot and killed in Dallas Texas. This is the second worst tragedy where so many officers died, with September 11th 2001 being the worst. Although the Ribbon is a Canadian Symbol we have worn it for our Brothers and Sisters in Law Enforcement in the USA. The last time was for 9/11. This tragedy affects all of us who wear the badge.
To show support for our Law Enforcement family in the United States of America, and more specifically Dallas Texas, we believe and encourage the wearing of the Police and Peace Officers’ Memorial Ribbon to honour and remember the five officers in Dallas who were killed while performing their duties.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and officers in Dallas Texas.
