My couple of weeks covering the deaths of officers in the U.S. has taught me a few things. One of the most important has been that most people don’t pay much attention to these tragic losses. But then I had a thought — maybe they don’t know about them?
The good folks at www.odmp.org have helped solve that problem. And I am officially calling all of you out. If you have a web site or a blog, or participate in one on a regular basis, why don’t you head over and download one of the free tools at the odmp page.
They have an RSS feed, or will supply a small banner or button on your site that flashes the names of officers killed recently. Or maybe just place a link on your site. I don’t care if you site is a shopping center, a myspace page, or a sports car dealership. These cops protect us all. Let’s put their names out there when they make the ultimate sacrifice. I think it is the least we can do.
