Teamsters Local 700 Recognizes Law Enforcement Officers in Honor of National Police Week
National Police Week Observance is May 15-21, 2017

In honor of National Police Week, Teamsters Local 700 would like to pay homage to all of the hardworking law enforcement officers who serve with integrity and pride, and often sacrifice their own personal safety to preserve the safety of the public.
