Press Release

Washington, D.C. – This week, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) helped the House pass several important measures to support our law enforcement in recognition of “National Police Week.”

“Throughout our community, brave law enforcement officers dedicate their careers and risk their lives each day to keep us safe,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Last year, the South Glens Falls community was heartbroken when New York State Trooper Timothy Pratt was tragically killed in the line of duty. Each year for Police Week, communities across our nation gather in honor and recognition of these heroes, and tens of thousands of law enforcement officers descend on our nation’s Capital to honor the fallen. Police Week is an important opportunity to thank our law enforcement officers for their service, and to honor the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.”

This week, Congresswoman Stefanik and her colleagues in the House passed:

H.R. 1892 – Honoring Hometown Heroes Act

H.R. 1428 – American Law Enforcement Heroes Act of 2017

H.R. 1616 – Strengthening State and Local Cyber Crime Fighting Act of 2017

H.R. 115 – Thin Blue Line Act

H.R. 1039 – Probation Officer Protection Act of 2017

H.R. 510 – Rapid DNA Act of 2017 

H.R. 1616 – Strengthening State and Local Cyber Crime Fighting Act of 2017
