The Lone Star State has been abundantly blessed with a dedicated group of individuals working together to protect Texans from those who would do them harm. From the sheriffs of our large counties and small towns, to the big-city officers walking the beat in our major metropolitan areas, Texas' law enforcement community is constantly laboring to keep the public safe.
Texas must do everything possible to ensure these brave men and women have the support and tools necessary to continue doing their jobs as well as they are able, and should know the gratitude of 24 million Texans rides with them on the job every single day.
