Law enforcement officers salute during the dedication of the Utah Law Enforcement Memorial on the west lawn of the Utah State Capitol on Sept. 6.

Thanks to Tom Kerr for his recent letter ("Going the extra mile," Readers' Forum, Dec. 16). As the mother of two sons in law enforcement, I greatly appreciate the invitation to say thank you for all that they do for us.

Their jobs are difficult to say the least. They are greatly underpaid and mostly unappreciated by the public they serve. Kudos to Officer Peck and his deeply caring actions. Officers like him do deserve our respect and appreciation.
