    Everyone who gets one of the Law Enforcement Memorial license plates is already donating 10 bucks a year to the statewide fund for officers killed or injured (even if not in the line of duty). Giving to the LMPD fund means it is ONLY for LMPD – not for Shively, J-town, Sheriff’s, etc. Why do we persist in thinking that only LMPD polices in Jefferson County? Why not donate to a fund that would go to ANY officer in the county, not just a specific agency? (Remember, in the last about a dozen years – two deputies have been killed, as has a small city police chief, in Jefferson County.

    Tell me where I’ve ever said that only LMPD polices Jefferson County?

    Of course you haven’t, you have a handle on who does what in the county, but many people really don’t. This organization is just for LMPD, after all. If a deputy sheriff dies, the organization isn’t going to do anything for them, but the foundation will. Here’s a thought, why is it when LMPD graduates recruits it is all over the paper, but when Shively, etc. has a kid graduate from the academy it is never even mentioned? (And yes, the AKN knows about it, they get the press releases.) Are those recruits somehow less worthy of recognition?
