2018 Law Enforcement Appreciation events kick off

On January 4, the 2018 Law Enforcement Appreciation events were kicked off in the Twin Cities with the Minnesota Wild. Despite the cold weather, the Wild beat the Buffalo Sabres in a final score of 6-2 as we honored Minnesota law enforcement. Our thanks to Jeff Beahen and the Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association, the Minnesota Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association and the Minnesota Chiefs of Police.

From Minnesota we traveled down to Tampa, Fla., as the Lightning took on the Calgary Flames. The Lightning lost a tough game with a final score of 5-1. Area law enforcement officers were honored at the start of the game on the video board. The Lightning had police agencies and an interactive display on the plaza prior to the game, as well as a police/fire honor guard. Law enforcement and their families were treated to great hospitality. Our thanks to Cindy Roberts and the Tampa Bay "COPS" Chapter for their assistance in the event, as well as Sam Reiner of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
