"The American Federation of Government Employees is proud to represent tens of thousands of law enforcement officers throughout the federal government, many of whom have traveled to Washington this week to participate in National Police Week.
"Our officers patrol the borders, keep us safe from federal prisoners, fight drug and human trafficking, and protect employees and visitors at federal offices, military facilities and VA hospitals across the country. Some of our officers have died in the line of duty, paying the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe.
"We owe a debt of gratitude to every man and woman in uniform and should never take for granted that our safety depends on them. AFGE will continue to fight for better pay, benefits and working conditions for our brothers and sisters in uniform and for all our public servants."
