Yesterday, Michelle Steel, Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors visited the police departments of Buena Park, Los Alamitos and Seal Beach to show support for local law enforcement in her district during these tough times.
“In the face of radical calls for defunding and dismantling our local law enforcement, I introduced a resolution to the Board of Supervisors in support of our men and women that protect our communities by creating a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, which will be held on August 11th,” said Chairwoman Steel.
Throughout the day, Chairwoman Steel visited these three cities’ Police Departments and presented to each of them signed versions of the Law Enforcement Appreciation Day resolution with signatures from all five supervisors.
A number of local businesses joined Chairwoman Steel to provide these police officers with either food or sponsorship for their commitment to protecting the community. These businesses included: Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, Subway Sandwiches, Maderas Steakhouse and Pacific Urology.
“In the coming weeks, I will be presenting signed versions of our Law Enforcement Appreciation Day resolution to each of my district’s 10 city police departments, as well as the Orange County Sheriff’s Department,” added Chairwoman Steel. “Our local law enforcement are on the front lines every single day- protecting our families, patrolling our streets, putting their lives in harm’s way for our safety.”
