FLEOA Supports H.Res 776

September 19, 2012

House Committee on the Judiciary

Chairman: The Honorable Lamar Smith
Ranking Member: The Honorable John Conyers, Jr.

Re: Support for H.Res 776

Dear Chairman Smith and Ranking Member Conyers:

On behalf of the 26,000 members of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA), I am writing to express our strong support for H.Res 776 which recognizes the importance and sacrifice of all federal officers. While the Congress wrestles with the budget and the disturbing prospect of sequestration, federal law enforcement officers across our country continue to remain vigilant and aggressive in protecting our homeland and preserving our national security. This vital point should not get lost in a budget debate.

This resolution seeks to reinforce the importance of the federal law enforcement mission, and recognizes the brave men and women who risk their lives to support it. Our country’s most imminent threat comes from those violent criminals that taint our sacred soil with their footprints. Federal law enforcement officers are our country’s unrelenting defenders that confront and capture those who seek to do our citizenry and our institutions harm. We applaud the intent of this resolution, and hope our Congress will unite on this.

The FLEOA membership respectfully asks that you help share the importance of H.Res 776 with your colleagues so that this inspiring resolution is adopted.

Respectfully yours,

Jon Adler
