Video Transcript

Richard Collodi: Hello, I’m Richard Collodi, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Seattle Field Office.

During National Police Week, I’d like to acknowledge police officers, who hold a special place in my heart. I began my law enforcement career as a police officer and have many dear friends and colleagues who are sworn to protect our cities across the nation.

Police Officers regularly deal with uncertainty and risk as part of their daily lives. Each day, these dedicated men and women put themselves in harm’s way when that call comes to keep us safe. They often accept great personal risk to serve their communities. They serve on nights, weekends, and holidays and leave their families to protect ours. We depend on them and expect them to answer that call promptly every time.

Here at the FBI, police officers work alongside our special agents on criminal and national security investigations to help us perform our mission. We couldn’t do our jobs without these partnerships.

I’d especially like to acknowledge the officers in Washington State who gave the ultimate sacrifice. We are deeply grateful to their loved ones and departments. Their memories will not be forgotten.

To all the men and women of the law enforcement agencies across Washington State, I thank you and your families for your consistent sacrifice, not only as partners to us here at the FBI, but to all of us as Washingtonians and American citizens.
