National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day January 9, 2018 Lori Messner Annually on January 9, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S) organizes a National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.). It is an opportunity for communities to “take the L.E.A.D.” and recognize the sacrifices and say thanks to these brave men and women who have taken an oath to serve and protect their communities. To show appreciation and say “Thank You” for their service, Vista Outdoor, along with brands BLACKHAWK! and Savage Arms visited local law enforcement officers. Employees from Farmington, Utah, pay a visit to the Farmington City Police Department and Davis County Sheriff’s Office. Manhattan, Montana and Westfield, Massachusetts say, Thank You! Last year, portions of sales from the special-edition American Eagle handgun ammunition garnered more than $25,000 which was donated to C.O.P.S.
