On Tuesday, I stopped by the Altoona Police Department to say thank you for protecting our communities.

During National Police Week, we remember the brave men and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty while protecting our communities and honor those who put themselves in harm’s way to keep us safe.

While serving in Congress, I’ve fought to make sure our men and women who wear the badge have the support they need through commonsense legislation, including:

  • Backing the blue by passing the O.L.I.C.E. Act to enhance penalties for those who target and harm law enforcement
  • Supporting rural forces by championing the bipartisan Protect to Invest Act to help with recruitment, retention, and mental health support for police officers
  • Helping parents who serve our communities by advocating for the Providing Child Care for Police Officers Act, a bipartisan bill to ensure officers have access to reliable childcare
  • Standing with community law enforcement departments by passing legislation to condemn efforts to defund local law enforcement

Each day, these men and women sacrifice so much to keep our neighborhoods safe. Please join me in saying thank you to those who protect our communities every day.

Congressman Zach Nunn represents Iowa’s Third Congressional District. He is a sixth-generation Iowan who served nearly two decades in the U.S. Air Force.
