During a brief ceremony recognizing National Police Week, State Rep. Rosa C. Rebimbas (R-70) and her colleagues in the House of Representatives yesterday honored the dedication and sacrifice of local and state law enforcement officers with a standing ovation and sustained applause.
“The dedicated officers of our local and state police forces work under sometimes emotionally demanding and physically difficult emergency situations on a daily basis,” Rep. Rebimbas said. “I remain committed to supporting their mission to protect and serve the people of Connecticut and I will continue to work toward bi-partisan solutions and common sense legislation to support their efforts.”
