Rep. Rokita’s Statement on Peace Officers Memorial Day

DANVILLE, IN - Today, Congressman Todd Rokita released this statement for Peace Officers Memorial Day:

“Today we honor Officer Robert Pitts, Deputy Sheriff Jacob Pickett, Lieutenant Aaron Allan, and Deputy Sheriff Carl Koontz who died putting themselves in harm’s way to defend Hoosier lives and to protect American laws,” said Congressman Rokita. “Although they are no longer with us, their legacy of honor, valor, and bravery will continue to live on in our communities and in our hearts. May we honor those who guarded the thin blue line by upholding integrity for our laws and cultivating peace within our communities.”

Congressman Rokita is a staunch supporter of our police officers and their dedication to protecting Hoosier lives. Today, Rokita is honoring these officers for protecting the thin blue line and paying the ultimate price while working their stations in Indiana.
