COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA — In honor of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, Jan. 9, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of South Carolina recognizes the hard-working men and women in law enforcement for the sacrifices that they make on a daily basis to protect the citizens of this State and Country.

“Every day, law enforcement officers put on their uniforms and leave the safety of their homes to protect and serve our communities,” said U.S. Attorney Corey F. Ellis.  “These officers risk their lives to make South Carolina safer, and indeed many have made the ultimate sacrifice. We appreciate their sacrifices, owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude, and stand with them as they do their important work.” 

Although COVID-19 currently hinders our ability to appropriately recognize our law enforcement partners in person, U.S. Attorney Ellis invites the public to follow the Office’s Twitter page at https://twitter.com/USAO_SC, where we will be sharing stories throughout January about the work our law enforcement partners do in their communities. U.S. Attorney Ellis also encourages the public to do what they can to recognize the efforts of their local law enforcement officers.
