The Beaumont Police Department will be participating in Governor Abbots call to honor our brothers and sisters in blue who have been killed in the line of duty and those who continue to serve. On Friday, July 7, 2017 at 10:00 a.m., The Beaumont Police Department will have marked patrol units with activated emergency lights in front of the Police Station as we stand in support of Governor Abbott’s Press Release (see below).

To mark the one-year anniversary of the attack on Dallas law enforcement, and in honor of all peace officers across Texas, Governor Greg Abbott today issued a statewide call to stand with law enforcement in Texas. Governor Abbott is asking 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.

“Respect for our law enforcement officials must be restored in this nation,” said Governor Abbott. “It is our officers who stand between us and all that threatens, and we must stand behind them by sending a clear message that attacks on our men and women in blue will not be tolerated. I ask that all Texans come together to show our appreciation for those who keep us safe.”
In Austin, law enforcement patrol cars will line the North drive of the Capitol to join in unity in turning on their red and blue lights.
