NEW: During #PoliceWeek, Chair Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) shares the tragic stories of two CPD officers who died by suicide.

"It is no coincidence that these two families share such similar stories about the reality law enforcement officers and their families face."

It is noteworthy that Police Week falls during Mental Health Awareness Month. The Judiciary Committee will use this opportunity not just to pause and honor our law enforcement officers and their families, but also to take action to improve mental health resources for them.

We should always be grateful for our police officers and public servants who dedicate themselves to keeping our communities safe, and especially during #PoliceWeek.

To all our eastern Connecticut men and women who wear the blue, thank you for your service! #PoliceWeek2022

From Sen. Durbin, representing Illinois

More police officers die by suicide than in the line of duty (NAMI). This National #PoliceWeek, we recognize the urgent need to provide law enforcement and their families with more support for mental health issues arising from their service to our communities.

During Police Week, the Judiciary Cmte has traditionally voted on bipartisan bills to support law enforcement—and this year will be no different. Tune in Thursday as we pause to not just honor our nation's police officers & their families, but take action to improve their lives.

Chief Corey Sianez served in our @BuenaParkPD for over 40 years, setting an example of excellence & leaving an impact that can be seen not only in #BuenaPark but also in neighboring Orange County cities. I thank him for his service & wish him a wonderful retirement. #PoliceWeek

From Rep. Duyne, representing Texas

I’m leading 52 of my colleagues in calling for the passage of my bill, the #ThinBlueLine Act, to toughen penalties against cop killers. We need to show law enforcement that we have their backs now more than ever. #PoliceWeek

Ambush-style attacks on police officers are on the rise.

That’s why I signed on to the Thin Blue Line Act, which would toughen the penalties for attacks on police officers. #NationalPoliceWeek
