Well Served Peace Officer. May you Rest in Peace.
Today take pause to say a quiet Thank You to all that have lost their lives in the line of duty. I honor their commitment to our community and know the sacrifice all of our men and women in uniform are making every day. Pensacola has a top notch group of officers doing their work to make our city a safe place to not only live but thrive in. They have families too yet each day they wear the uniform and go protect our community...they are our Peace Officers.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
