Today’s (National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day) #Honor post goes to the men and women who serve and protect.

Today and everyday our officers need to hear they are appreciated. They sacrifice so much for so many for so long. Law enforcement officers serve their communities selflessly, honorably and with commitment. They serve expecting nothing in return, only to make a difference.

God knows what they do for their communities, the reward awaits them.

“Blessed are the peacekeepers, for they shall be called the children of God”-Matthew 5:9

Today’s (January 15) #Honor post goes to the terrific 3 siblings who serve and protect.

Learning the importance of giving back, the Riley siblings continue that important mission today that they learned from their parents. Their parents volunteered their time coaching local youth with pee wee football and cheerleading. The kids on the teams the parents coached became like siblings to the Riley kids.

When the Riley siblings got older they were drawn to service related careers. Today, Trumaine is in his 8th year with Akron Police Department, Truvonte joined the force 2 years ago and sister Tia joined the Akron Fire Department 5 years ago.

The terrific 3 Riley siblings say it is an honor to serve the city they grew up in. “We are here for you, you can always call us”-Firefighter Tia Riley.

Thank you for your service and you are all appreciated.
