This holiday season, Virgin Islands families will come together once again to celebrate their faith, to welcome the New Year, and to treasure the simple joys of life. Many of the blessings we enjoy are legacies of the sacrifice and hard work of our police department. Throughout the holidays, some of you will remain on duty, supporting our operations and guarding the freedom and pleasures of our visitors and residents alike.
As we enter this joyous and holy season, let us remember our fallen police officers and their families. Our hearts and prayers go out to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, and again, we welcome home the police officers who served our nation during a military call-up to duty to help secure our nation and the territories from further acts of violence and terror.
Preserving peace and tranquility requires tremendous personal sacrifice.
Like our forefathers, the men and women of today's police department willingly shoulder the heavy burden of protecting and serving this territory.
Each of you is a valued member of the Virgin Islands Police Department, whose dedication and selfless service make a tremendous difference, not only to your fellow citizens, but to the people in need all over this territory and beyond.
Each and every day, you show the Virgin Islands at its very best. At this special time of year, Janice and I wish you a blessed, rewarding, and safe holiday season. May the New Year bring you and your love ones every happiness.
