In 2019, legislation was passed to honor our nation’s first responders for their everyday service and sacrifice they put forth while protecting their communities. Now every October 28, EMS providers, dispatchers, firefighters and law enforcement officers are celebrated during National First Responders Day.

Below, we have compiled a roundup of social media posts recognizing and thanking law enforcement officers around the country for their continued commitment to serve and protect. Has your department received a special “thank you” today? Or maybe you’re holding an event to commemorate your officers as well as those you have lost in the line of duty? If so, send your photos or videos to and we will add them to our roundup below.

From all of us at, we thank you today – and every day – for your continued dedication, commitment and sacrifice as you protect and serve your communities.
