On May 27, Ambassador Degnan presented a certificate of appreciation to Minister of Internal Affairs Vakhtang Gomelauri to congratulate the Ministry on Police Day and demonstrate the respect and gratitude of the U.S. Embassy for the support and achievements of the Ministry and its law enforcement professionals, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Police officers do a difficult job, often in hazardous circumstances. Most of these brave men and women face daily dangers and spend sleepless nights on duty to protect our safety. In difficult times, we rest easy knowing they will always answer our call. Today we join Georgia in celebrating Police Day, as we take time to thank the men and women of Georgian law enforcement, who have shown their tireless dedication during the response to COVID-19. The United States is proud to stand with you!
