Bentley was joined by Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Secretary Stan Stabler for the appreciation visit that began at 6 a.m.

“Everyday you put your lives on the line. You get up and go to work and you expect to come home, your families expect you to come home and I expect you to come home.” Governor Bentley said to the officers in the room.

Bentley is honoring the men and women who willingly put themselves in harm’s way to protect Alabamians on a daily basis.

“I want everyone across this country to know that as Governor of this state, we are going to have your back and we are going to do whatever it takes and whatever is needed to protect you,” Bentley continued.

Tuesday, Bentley announced the Alabama State Capitol will be illuminated blue through Friday night to show appreciation for the 16,000 law enforcement officers in Alabama and others across the nation, in the wake of the shootings in Baton Rouge and Dallas that killed several officers.
