                               RESOLUTION


 
 Commemorating and acknowledging the dedication and sacrifice made by 
   the men and women who have lost their lives while serving as law 
                         enforcement officers.

Whereas the well-being of all citizens of the United States is preserved and 
        enhanced as a direct result of the vigilance and dedication of law 
        enforcement personnel;
Whereas more than 700,000 men and women, at great risk to their personal safety, 
        presently serve their fellow citizens as guardians of peace;
Whereas peace officers are on the front line in preserving the right of the 
        children of the United States to receive an education in a crime-free 
        environment, a right that is all too often threatened by the insidious 
        fear caused by violence in schools;
Whereas more than 145 peace officers across the Nation were killed in the line 
        of duty during 2002, well below the decade-long average of 165 deaths 
        annually, and a major drop from 2001 when 230 officers were killed, 
        including 72 officers in the September 11th terrorist attacks;
Whereas a number of factors contributed to this reduction in deaths, including 
        better equipment and the increased use of bullet-resistant vests, 
        improved training, longer prison terms for violent offenders, and 
        advanced emergency medical care;
Whereas every year, 1 out of every 9 peace officers is assaulted, 1 out of every 
        25 peace officers is injured, and 1 out of every 4,400 peace officers is 
        killed in the line of duty somewhere in America every other day; and
Whereas on May 15, 2003, more than 15,000 peace officers are expected to gather 
        in Washington, D.C. to join with the families of their recently fallen 
        comrades to honor those comrades and all others who went before them: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) recognizes May 15, 2003, as Peace Officers Memorial 
        Day, in honor of Federal, State, and local officers killed or 
        disabled in the line of duty; and
            (2) calls upon the people of the United States to observe 
        this day with appropriate ceremonies and respect.
                                 <all>
