Published on July 07, 2017
To mark the one-year anniversary of the attack on Dallas law enforcement, and in honor of all peace officers across Texas, the City of Peñitas participated in a statewide call by Texas Governor Greg Abbott to stand with law enforcement in Texas. Governor Abbott asked all Texas law enforcement officers to turn on their red and blue lights for one minute on Friday, July 7th, at 10:00 a.m.
Peñitas Police Department and Fire Department joined forces with law enforcement agencies from neighboring communities, including Alton Fire Department, La Joya Police Department, US Fish & Wildlife Service, Palmview Police Department, Palmview Fire Department, and Hidalgo County EMS, gathering along an overpass on US Interstate I-2 and flashing their patrol lights in a sign of solidarity with law enforcement agencies throughout the state.
On behalf of the City fo Peñitas, thank you to all law enforcement agencies and officers across Texas for protecting our communities!
