Local enforcement honored Sunday morning
BATON ROUGE - Local leaders honored law enforcement officers and military personnel Sunday morning at the First Pentecostal Church.
State Senator David Vitter and State Police Colonel Mike Edmonson were among those who praised the servicemen and women for their contributions.
"I've been doing this for 35 years, it just warmed my heart this morning," said Edmonson.
Church pastor Dan Davis said its important to honor enforcement in times like these, because they are often running into danger when others are running away.
"They put on a uniform, they put on a badge, they walk outside, and make us feel more comfortable," said Davis.
Several state troopers and past military personnel were among those who were honored. One honoree was a veteran from Pearl Harbor.
