WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senators Roy Blunt (Mo.) and Chris Coons (Del.), co-chairs of the Senate Law Enforcement Caucus, hosted a holiday event to thank the Capitol Police for their service.
“The U.S. Capitol Police work tirelessly to keep members, staff, and visitors safe,” said Blunt. “During the holiday season, many officers will sacrifice time with their loved ones to fulfill their duties, and we are extremely grateful to them and their families for their service. I’m glad to join Senator Coons, co-chair of the Law Enforcement Caucus, in expressing our appreciation for the men and women of the U.S. Capitol Police force, and for all of our law enforcement personnel across the country.”
“The openness and accessibility of the U.S. Congress is a hallmark of our democracy – and a testament to the efforts of the Capitol Police. Their hard work and professionalism are exceptional, and I greatly appreciated this opportunity to thank the members of the Capitol Police for their service,” said Coons. “My co-chair, Senator Blunt, and I are extremely pleased that the Senate Law Enforcement Caucus now has twenty-six members, which is representative of the fact that Senators from both parties share a deep admiration and gratitude for the work of the Capitol Police.”
