The Texas Governors Mansion is looking good this week in honor of National Police Week. Governor Abbott also declared it Peace Officers Memorial Week in honor of fallen officers in the Great State of Texas.
In a Press Release the Governor stated:
“The State of Texas is forever indebted to the law enforcement officers who boldly and bravely answer the call to serve and protect their fellow Texans across our state," said Governor Abbott. "This week, we are lighting the Governor's Mansion blue as a symbol of appreciation for the men and women of law enforcement. The police deserve our honor and respect, and I thank the courageous members (of) law enforcement for their many sacrifices and for putting their lives on the line to keep us safe."
The Governor's Mansion will stay in its 'Backing the Blue' color through this Saturday night, May 15.
This is a great time to go get some pictures of the Texas Governor's Mansion while it's bathed in blue.
