2014 Officers of the Year, Ryan Thompson and Carmelo Garcia, III, receive their 2014 Police Officer of the Year awards from PBA President John Rivera.

The Dade County PBA’s 22nd Annual Law Enforcement Awards Gala was about coming together and saying something law enforcement officers don’t hear enough: “Thank you.”

“Tonight is about saying thank you to every officer who pins on a badge. Thank you for running in to danger when everyone else is running away. Thank you for protecting the weak. Thank you for believing in the dignity of the law. Thank you for standing up against injustice, and for truly wanting to make a difference. Thank you for believing in a purpose much bigger than yourself. Thank you for the time you spend away from your families,” said PBA President John Rivera to the hundreds gathered at the event.

Ok, so it’s been quite a few years since I’ve had that problem. I hope we are keeping up with our New Year’s resolutions by making time for our families and special friends. Also, please ensure that you are keeping up with your health, little more proper diet and some exercise — and no, 12 oz. curls don’t count.
