Sinema Backs Senate Resolution Designating ‘National Police Week’ 2019

May 13, 2019

WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema cosponsored a bipartisan resolution designating May 12 through May 18, 2019 as National Police Week. The resolution encourages Americans to observe National Police Week with events honoring the work of law enforcement and commemorating the 158 American police officers killed while serving their communities in 2018.
“I’m thankful for the hard work my brother Paul and all police officers do to keep our communities safe. Police Week is an opportunity for all of us to show our thanks, honor the service of law enforcement, and remember those who lost their lives in the line of duty,” said Sinema.
Sinema’s brother, Paul Sheldon, is a K9 officer in the Tucson police department.
This year, Sinema introduced the Threat Assessment, Prevention, & Safety Act, which ensures law enforcement at all levels of government in Arizona and across the country have the proper training and resources to mitigate violence and save lives.
