As South Carolina recovers from what some are calling a “thousand year storm,” let’s take a moment to thank the men and women of law enforcement who are still working extended shifts to protect our communities.

These officers served two vital roles during this disasters: to provide for the safety and security of the community and to be first responders during the time of crisis.  We saw officers wade into water to save stranded motorists.  We saw officers using various vehicles to take residents to safety from their flooded homes.  These acts of bravery should not go unrecognized.

As life slowly returns to the normal routine, take a moment to say thank you to the men and woman who were in the storm safeguarding our neighborhoods and rescuing lives.

Also remember the families of those officers.  During this catastrophic rain, families had to hunker down without a badge wearing loved one.  Families sacrificed so their loved one could protect others.

The Tri-County area is fortunate to have so many courageous men and women willing to put on the badge and risk their lives for our communities.

Please join me in thanking each one.
