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.
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.
