Provided by Congresswoman Barbara Comstock’s Office

Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) released the following statement after she voted for and the House passed H.R. 5698, the Protect and Serve Act, legislation she co-sponsored and that will further protect law enforcement officers:

“Our men and women in blue risk their lives every day so that our communities remain safe.  Criminals who target law enforcement officers must be punished for their crimes.  I cosponsored and voted for the bipartisan Protect and Serve Act, legislation that will create federal penalties for criminals who knowingly target federal, state, or local law enforcement officers with violence.  This week is National Police Week, and today we honor our law enforcement community by passing this legislation.”
