GOSHEN – From ceremonies to Facebook posts, police across the Hudson Valley/Catskills were hailed on Wednesday, National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

This is the fifth year that Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler brought police brass together to say ‘thank you’ to the 900 officers in the county.

“They have adopted the roles of social worker. They have adopted the role of police officer, of guidance counselor, or advisor, of marriage counselor, of coach, of parent. Every role we have in society we ask our police officer to take.”

Hoovler said law enforcement appreciation day should be every day.

Sheriff Carl DuBois said officers “are not there to make your life more difficult,” but rather to assist the public often serving as “a preacher, proctor, lawyer and doctor.”

Michael McGinn, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Jason Conklin Memorial Lodge 957 in Monroe, said police officers “are out trying to do the right thing every day.
