Governor Abbott Issues Statewide Call To Stand With Law Enforcement In Texas

AUSTIN – To mark the one-year anniversary of the attack on Dallas law enforcement, and in honor of all peace officers across Texas, Governor Greg Abbott today issued a statewide call to stand with law enforcement in Texas. Governor Abbott is asking all Texas law enforcement officers to turn on their red and blue lights for one-minute on Friday, July 7th, at 10:00 a.m.

 

Additionally, tomorrow morning, Governor Abbott will be attending and speaking at the funeral of San Antonio Police Officer Miguel Moreno, who was shot and killed in the line of duty last week.

 

“Respect for our law enforcement officials must be restored in this nation,” said Governor Abbott. “It is our officers who stand between us and all that threatens, and we must stand behind them by sending a clear message that attacks on our men and women in blue will not be tolerated. I ask that all Texans come together to show our appreciation for those who keep us safe.”

 

In Austin, law enforcement patrol cars will line the North drive of the Capitol to join in unity in turning on their red and blue lights.

WHAT: Law Enforcement Patrol Cars Turn On Red & Blue Lights
